Customers need more domain blocking capability. That is to say wild card options. The current model does not address sub-domains and we are being overwhelmed. Example @*.cracklip.com or @*.blowfood.com the * representing sub-domains. Simple stuff goes a long way. -TheHill

I agree. I am being killed by cracklip.com and two others. I tried everything including filters and unsubscribing. Nothing works. What's worse is the the spam is going to my cell phone as well. I am almost ready to close my internet account with verizon.

same here...cracklip, donerump, chatwhip. I tried to block or spam all the "info@#" and they all still come through. what a poor spam filter, pretty much completely ineffective. I got desperate enough to open an email and try to "unsubscribe". I hope I don't regret that...

Try using a * instead of a # when filtering. * is often a wildcard used in computer systems for all inclusive. # is usually a placefolder or a denotion of a comment.

What is requested would be best served by an email client.
For example, as it was noted, a good email client may support wilcard characters and Regular Expressions (aka; RegEx).
* They may be able to filter on strings located in the Header or Body of the email.
* They may be able to filter on specific or generalized text within an email Header Field ("Fom:", "To:", "Subject:", "Reply to:", etc)
* They may be able to filter on the sender IP address (IPv4 and/or IPv6)
* You may be able to do Whitelisting and Blacklisting
* The email client may have its own Bayesian mail filter that can be "taught" on what types of email are spam.
Example of RegEx wildcard and delimeters
* Match any number of any characters
? Match any single character
+ Match one or more occurrence of the last character
[ ] Encloses a group of characters to match. Ranges
The following 3 line RegEx rules will filter on email sent from any IP address sent within the IP rage: 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52 [ Iasi Romania ]
*Received: from *.hichina.com*
How you use wildcards and Regular Expressions will depend on what email client one chooses. Then it is just a matter of applying it in a rule or set of rules for the that implemented email application.
A logical application of the above examples would like like...
if HEADER contains *Received: from *.hichina.com* DELETE
if HEADER contains *46.102.17[6-9].[0-9]+* DELETE
if HEADER contains *46.102.18[0-9].[0-9]+* DELETE
if HEADER contains *46.102.19[0-1].[0-9]+* DELETE
