Comes to me as a gmail.com address. Yes I can delete them...just seems to bypass my junk command. I use Thunderbird for mail.

I have sent so many domains to my restricted list I’m amazed I get any mail.

But yea, it would seem that a great deal of spam mail is being generated by Zombies or whatever they are called…swat one of them and another takes over.

I would suggest you set up a rule to place those pesky mails into your spam folder using one or more key words.

I don’t use Thunderbird but in my client there is something called “message rules” under “folders”.

Where you can set up filters/rules that move mail to specific folders.

Are you marking it as spam in Thunderbird? You can try marking it as spam through the Gmail site, that way Google's spam filtering can sort it before it even hits Thunderbird.
