Custom rule to filter on sender name

I am getting a lot of spam with things like "viagra" and "cialis" in the

sender name, where the sender address changes constantly. I'd like a rule to

filter on this. Can anyone tell me how?

Thanks

Philip

Create a rule for specific words in the text, there's no need for VBA.

Thanks for your reply.

I do have rules for the sender address, subject, message header and message

body, but they don't catch words in the SenderName field. I am trying to

cobble together a custom rule but my VBA skills are next to nothing.

The message header should do it.

Well I thought so too. Something is apparently blocking the rule from reading

the SenderName in the header. I tested this by creating a rule that

successfully detected part of the email address, but my Sender Name rule

would not detect anything in SenderName. Hence my quest to make a custom

rule. Is there something I am missing?

Thanks for your help with this.

Oh nevermind. I just figured out that the rule filter words are case

sensitive. Argh.
