I seem to be getting a lot of e-mail spam with non standard ascii characters interspersed in the subject text:

(Almost every word in the subject has these characters - they're not visible in every font ...)

 

Is there a way I can filter against those?

Well known spamming technique.  Not sure why the Verizon filter (done by a third party) hasn't been changed to flag such as Spam.

I added a filter to delete all e-mails not addressed to me, and set my Thunderbird to  delete all e-mails containing the specific characters off the pop server.

 

We'll see how that works...

Good luck with your filters.  Note I personally don't recommend deleting all email not addressed to you.  Perhaps just put it a separate folder.  I and many of my friends make liberal use of BCC so that we can share certain messages with many people WITHOUT letting everyone know everyone else's email address.
