How to block spam mail from Bet2day on Mac Mail

I recently received a bunch of spam from Bet2day (or bet2dayb.net) and all of them were sent from different domains which makes it a hassle for Mac mail to blacklist them as junk. The mail has the following content (it’s in swedish, but I guess there’s one for pretty much any language):

Easy steps for mac users to stop recieving mails from Ryan Harding.

    Add a rule in order to block a spammer (or do something else)
  3. Set up following conditions

I hoped you enjoyed this tutorial on how to block spam mails sent from different domains!

It seems like the site has been spam marked now, but that doesn’t seem to stop the spam bots.

Spammers don't stop just because the site is down. Robots just don't care....

Update:

Apperantly, there is some sort of bug/”feature” in Mac Mail that only apply rules to ”unseen” mail, e.g. mail you have seen on another device if you are using IMAP. I realised that (of course) my mail client on my Iphone don’t apply the rules I’ve set up on my desktop Mail client.

– So what’s the solution? Well, hooking up my mail account with Google Mail seem to be a good idea, if it wasn’t for the thing that I don’t want all my mail to handled by Google. One idea is to check if your mail service you are using provide any custom filtering.

Anyhow: This might at least decrease the spam on your desktop client. Hopefully it’s some help. 🙂
