    hi
    thought i posted about this yesterday. maybe it was not appropiate or i didn't do it right.

    I belong to a list at forexample.com
    it has an automated miling system.
    that means i send a message to the list. it recognises me as a member and automatically sends my mail to all members of the list.

    for awhile now the list has been recieving spam mail from an unknown server from spamer who spoofs the list owner's email addy.

    genuine mail from the owner appears as
    "List Owner"<listowner@forexample.com>

    spoof mail appears as
    "Lowner"<listowner@forexample.com>

    message headers on ther real mail do not include any unknown isp addresses

    My questions
    Can anyone tell me how to filter this spam to the deleted mail folder as anything I've tried doesn't seem to work.

    can anyone tell me if it would be possible for the list owner to filter this spoofed mail or might the site host be able to filter off the mail from the spoofed addy

    hi peaches

    been using thunderbird
    but have outlook still
    best solution would be for site host or owner to figure it out save everybody
