Scan emails, often from West Africa, are experienced by an increeasing number of people it seems. It may or may not be effective to block a particular email address as these scum change their addresses. However on the basis that the ISPs may be used by a number of scammers, is there a way in OEx and/or hotmail to block messages from the ISP it self?

many of the scammers use yahoo and internet cafes for running their scams, checking the headers of the emails reveals IPs from many different ISPs.

They also tend to use email addys from lawyer.com and similar. Have a look click here for more information

Type Spam into the search box on the left side of the screen and there are over 300 threads on this subject

There is no feasible way to block them. Just hot delete.
