    i have never been a customer of JiffyLube but somehow I got on their list. Every day I get spam e-mail from them and I have been unable to stop it. The domain in the "from" changes every time so I can't simply ban a domain. The message today was from Printable.JiffyLube.Coupons@rmwin.xyz

    In the BoxTrapper configuration, i have added to the Ignore List these lines:

    from contains Jiffy
    subject contains Jiffy

    Even with those lines in my Ignore List, I still get email from them. What can I do to stop them?

    Create a filter to drop the email. Or set your SpamAssassin score to 1 - that's what most of our clients have it set at, and it usually stops these.

    Better yet if it is indeed Jiffy lube sending the mail they should be can spam compliant.

    1. take meticulous records saving the spam
    2. use the snail mail request and send them a remove request via registered mail.
    3. wait 72 hours after singing
    4. if you receive 1 more spam Sue them.

    Even if its just small claims court you can do it over and over when you start costing them money they will stop :)

    Not the first time Jiffy lube has had some shady Spam practices

    I like the idea of sueing. :)
    I have scalabledns spamming me, and no matter what they will not stop.
    In the end, I googled them, found a list of IP's they use and added them to my CSF deny list.
    I've not seen a spam email from them now for about a week.

    OK thanks everyone for your help.
    Today, 3 of them came. The "from" addresses are:
    Code:
    Printable.JiffyLube.Discounts@syjjhb.link
    JiffyLube.Oil.Change@phy163.hyzhu.xyz
    Print.JiffyLube.Oil.Deals@tnsue.xyz
    
    
    Are these real e-mail addresses? What sort of filter specifically would stop these?
