    Find a common phrase in the email, and create an account level filter in the users cpanel.
    This should stop them for the whole domain.

    Or if you just want to protect a single email address, then user level filtering.

    Hello,

    Yes, as mentioned, email filters are a good way to block email from specific senders or to block messages with specific content.

    Thank you.
