Asterisk Wild Card
I'm getting tons of spam messages and most of it seems to be coming from the same sender. The syntax is similar in the email addresses and off just enough so that AOL does not allow me to block them. I can no longer block domain names nor can I use the asterisk as a wild card to block similar addresses. So the spammers are changing their email address just enough to bypass my choices with AOL to block them. What can you do to investigate these people and get them to stop?

MY OPINION !
AOL must be getting paid for these spammers to be allowed to continue .there is no reason why aol can not simply stop generated emails sent out.

Renter-info@******* WHY isn't something done about these individuals my spam box gets filled by them .I shouldn't be the one to complain about this obvious issue everyone on AOL . is having .I am thinking MAYBE aol.is being paid from these spammers to allow this to continue ??????

I also am being bombarded by spam from two main senders. How about a reply here from AOL?? Just give us the ability to block senders using a wildcard ( * ). Is it really all that difficult??

I agree 100% with the request... I too am getting flooded by emails like these. I actually came here to find out if it was possible to use a wild card to block the whole bunch.

With all these similar comments, why hasn't AOL changed their blocking to allow various inputs such as *@*co.uk which is where most of by spam is coming from. Their new thing now is to send out 4 identical emails in the same minute changing just 1 letter in each. These people need to be stopped.
I've been getting at least 50 spams from @addtocartnow-*****.co.uk every single day for several months. And just the other day, I started getting them from @offer**-zoqloq.com as well. They both change the domain name for each email where the asterisks are, so that I can't add them to my block list. There are a few others, but these 2 are the absolute worst. Please AOL, let us block these!
I am also flooded with emails from ****@addtocartnow-****.co.uk They do go straight to my spam folder, but I'd like to be able to block them completely. It's a mental assault, daily, and much as I love aol, I have started moving email accounts and contacts to a different provider as I really can't stand this.

Please, Please allow your customers to Block domain names. I am getting 100's per day all with slightly different email addresses but a common domain name.
John Kearney commented
Please please please allow me to block domain names like addtocartnow and funkybeatsillusions. They modify the domain name with random numbers/letters so that they can send thousands of spam email that you will not block.

For the past few months, spam from "addtocartnow" with slight changes in syntax have been flooding in. Dear AOL, please, please stop these! We have faithfully marked these as "spam" so "AOL can learn and recognize these as spam" and block them in the future but they just keep coming.
