    Hi,

    I want to know how I can block all emails coming from the same IP address.

    Everyday I get 10 or so junk emails from different email addresses, but are very obviously coming from the same IP address, as they are nearly identical in their content

    There's no point in me adding a mail rule to block emails by sender as each email has a different address, and every day the senders change.

    It is similarly pointless (and indeed not possible) to block based on IP address. IP addresses can easily be changed. My suggestion is to use an e-mail service with a better spam filter; for example, GMail.

    Because emails have identical content does not mean they came from the same IP address. Spam is broadcast from millions of sources, and a particular spam message can be sent from thousands of different IP addresses. If the content is identical, you can block based on content.

    That's not an option as my Me/.mac/icloud (whatever we're calling it now) is my work email.

    If I religiously send the emails to a junk folder, is there any way mac mail will learn?
