Spam email which has embedded ASCII characters in the SENDER or SUBJECT Line

Verizon Question:

I do not want to receive any spam email which has embedded ASCII characters in the SENDER or SUBJECT Line.


IE screen shot:


These messages are designed so that you can not easily search on them and delete them.

In the example above, if you open the email via a browser, copy the sender or subject line info to the clipboard, then paste the data into the verizon Search field, these ASCII characters show up.

I do not want to use/configure a spam filter or other method to stop them from entering my in-box.

I just want any message that contains these embedded characters from ever entering my in-box.  Because in practice, they are usually spam messages.

Please call me or email me with a solution.

Thanks.

Your talking to PEERS here.  Usually they will clear your items for display in a few days.

And yes lots of us don't understand why their Spam detector doesn't take such emails and mark them as spam.  Its pretty obvious when they have a bunch of non-printable ascii that they are spam just trying to avoid being detected by word matches.
