Can you make sure one does not get an email from a certain senders PC?

It's no good blocking on the last part of the email address (ie
@ntlworld.com) because then no-one can send to me with that domain name.
Also no good on the first part, (ie sender@) because the sender can change
this first part of his/her email address.

So, how can I ensure I get ne emails from a sender who can change the first
part of his email address? TIA.

Outlook Express does not support blocking by IP address although it would be
a nice feature if it did. The message rules are limited in scope and
ability and there are no easy workarounds for the problem. You might
consider filtering "mail in" vs. "filtering out" as a solution and you can
see some ideas of how to do that at this link:

Please deliver feedback to the newsgroup, so that others can be helped. No
one gets paid to help here, and the response rate from those that are helped
is less than 4-5%. If that were how medical advancements were made we would
all have died years ago. Thanks.

It is very hard to keep email from reaching your PC Inbox; unless you run
your own mail server. Most email filtering, even "Filter In", requires the
email to be downloaded for the filters to work at all.
