I keep getting mail which I try to filter as junk. Problem is, it is sent from my e-mail address while writing that the name of the sender is "Viagra yada yada yada (myRealEmail@email.com)"

I can't add a rule to Outlook according to sender's name, right?

Is there any other way I can filter these spam e-mails (I can't add a rule to junk mail my own e-mail address)?

The subject of the e-mails keeps changing in the following formats:

  • "Faruz 76% discount now!"
  • "Faruz 80% discount now!"
  • "Now! 78% discount Faruz"

(They seem to have infinite ideas of saying the same thing.)

So I also seem to have problems filtering according to subject.

Ideas?

As you have mentioned, "Faruz" and "discount" appears in the subject of each spam email, you can filter them by keywords.

Sometimes they say instead of discount: "Free" or "off" or many other wonderous alternatives... couldn't find a decent pattern there –  Faruz Feb 24 '10 at 6:10
