    I receive persistent emails from the same SPAM outfit, several every day, offering Canadian drugs for sale. There is no "remove" item at the bottom of the emails.

    Gmail dumps them into the SPAM bucket consistently, but I have to go in and delete them several times each day.

    Is there a way to detect the address of the sender and block further emails from that address ?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Are you accessing Gmail from the web interface, or in the Mail.app?

    Just click on any spam in your inbox (don't open it, just click on the message in the inbox listing), then click the "Junk" button on the Mail toolbar, or go to Message > Mark > As Junk Mail, or press Command-Shift-J. That should send future messages from that address directly to your Junk folder. You can also go to Mail > Preferences > Rules and add a rule for a particular address, domain, keyword, etc.
