Email spam

Can I block email based on a key word in the title?  For example, I'd love to block any email with "erectile" in the title.

Re: Email spam

Block?  No.  The only thing blocked addresses understand are entire domain names (all the stuff after the @) or entire email addresses.  There is no pattern matching, not even like what is supported for filters.  And you can't use filters because the att/yahoo spam filters take precedence over user defined filters.

Re: Email spam

My email account was hacked, bogus ads sent to all of my contacts.  Now I can receive emails, but cannot send or reply  any suggestions?
