Being inundated by spam from dudas.flexorlook.net

Hello -
I've been getting 20 or mores emails per day from the domain flexorlook.net. Each email comes from a different user, e.g. user@dudas.flexorlook.net, so setting a spam block for the user is ineffective. McAfee does not have way to block from a domain, just by specific user.

I did a "whois" look for the domain's ip address, which I found and blocked it in my computer's firewall (again, McAfee). That has been moderately successful but some still are seeping through.

Can anyone advise me on how to find all the ip addresses that this stuff is coming from so I can add those to my firewall?

OR if you have another solution that would be very welcome.

I've had my email address for so long I really don't want to resort to changing it.

Thanks much.

Anyone????

What I don't understand is how to find the additional IP addresses that the spam is coming from. I have found one, which I have blocked, but spam is still getting through.

Or here's another question -
do you know how to read the 'behind the scenes' information for an email in MS Outlook?

In the old days, you could see all the technical details behind an email, like smtp addresses and such, but I don't know how to do that anymore with the newer MS Outlook.

Sounds like maybe a backdoor trojan that is still active on your system. I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
