Hello,

I've written an account level email filter to stop spam using a regex match, but I'm really trying to match the display name of the sender, not the actual email address, which dynamically changes. I'm getting dozens of emails from iGreatLife, iSlimBody, iTopHealth and so on. I'm not sure if a From rule filters according to address or display name or both, but the spam is still coming.

My regex is here, if it's helpful: i[A-Z]{1}[a-z]{2,10}[A-Z]{1}[a-z]{2,10}.*

Thanks,
Robin

Hello :)

Have you considered creating a filter based on the message body? This may be more reliable than creating a filter for the display name of the sender.

Thank you.
