    Not sure how to avoid this new breed of spam (at least it's new for me). It comes in to my e-mail address with someone elses name. ie. "Zolly <name@domain.com>" and Junk can't seem to learn that I don't want to see this stuff in my In-Box.

    Suggestions as to how I can get this crap straight to my trash? TIA.

    create a rule using "not in address book" along with a move to command. This should handle it. I have multiple rules for e-mails from work, business, friends, Apple etc. all with different folders. If an e-mail does not fit any of the rules I move it to "junk" and then briefly scan to insure that a friend didn't change e-mail suddenly. Then select all and delete.
