Spam coming from

Copper Contributor

I've been receiving spam at an alarming rate. Currently, it's up to an average of two spam e-mails every three minutes. My personal e-mail box has become nearly unusable. The e-mails are always sent from a random one-time use account. They always include a .pdf attachment and a few random words/names peppered throughout subject and body. The only solution I've found is to create a filter that junks anything from with an attachment.


No ability to identify file type of attachments to target... just a broad stroke of having to block any sender from the same service that I pay to use....


Anyone else with any ideas or methods? Clearly, Microsoft is unable to keep up with g-mail on the spam filter front.

I'm getting the same thing happening that started just today. This is to my personal account. Every email - one every minute or two has a PDF with porn attached.
