      I am receiving emails that are obviously spam or phishing emails. The body of the email is exactly the same but, the sent from addressee changes each time. When I receive the email, I will go to my Gmail settings and click on “report spam or phishing” or block email. The problem is that I will receive another email with the same body but the from sent from address is a bunch of letters like mgurvma nqudpyq. I will block that email address but, another email comes through with the same body but a different from addressee like ycsoalh ojpeyqs

      It is apparent that whom ever is sending the mails is changing the from email.
      The body of the email is about CVS is always:

      Dear Client,
      At CVS, we are constantly trying to improve our service and would like to hear your feedback on how we performed.
      The survey is short and will only take 2 minutes to complete.
      And Of Course there’s a $90 promo reward to you After Finishing
      Take survey
      We appreciate your partnership and collaboration.

      How do I block these forever changing emails?
      Thanks
      Charlie

      Hello Charles,

      What email host and client are you using? If you are only using webmail, then there will be no client.

      If you use Google Mail and the content of this spam email is always the same you could create a content filter for something like “The survey is short and will only take 2 minutes to complete.”
      When creating the mail filter for this key phrase or “Has the words”, you can configure it to trash the email.

      How to create a mail filter for a phrase.

      G mail
      I tried that and it filtered out those messages. I then set up a filter as you suggested. I didn’t know you could use a phrase as a filter.
      Thank you so much
      Charles

      Is it possible to do phrase filtering with Apple mail?
