    have a spam filter which works ok but
    I keep getting the same spam message (Viagra)
    on my outlook express email

    I have highlighted it and then gone to
    messages and hit "block message" and
    the message is deleted.
    Next day I get the same spam.
    I get no other spam

    Is there something else I can do?

    Help would be appreciated

    Cheers

    Blocked Senders works only on the sending e-mail address which spammers
    are constantly changing. A Subject message rule would be a better option.

    And never use your real e-mail address when posting to a newsgroup. That
    is one of the places spammers harvest addresses from.
