I keep receiving the following email. It changes the sender, and contents a little bit all the time, so my spam filter doesn't filter it out.

Is there any way to find this pattern to filter it out?

i tagged "mail.app" on the assumption you're using that on Mac OS X. go ahead and change it if you're using another email client. –  quack quixote Apr 25 '10 at 20:30

Not that I have ever done this myself (I use gmail), if you are using mail.app in Mac OS, you can add a rule to move emails with that URL in them to your trash:

  If  ANY  of the following conditions are met:

   MESSAGE CONTENT    CONTAINS  http://2su.de/S0w

  Perform the following actions:

   MOVE MESSAGE  to mailbox:  TRASH

You can add the rule by going into the menu bar and selecting Mail/Preferences and then in the preferences window, click on the "Rules" icon in the upper right area.

This assumes that the URL is a constant in these messages. If not, look for something else that is in common and set the rule to filter that.

You should probably also enable junk mail filtering in preferences. If you can't find anything consistent to filter on, then you may have to go to a 3rd party anti-spam tool. I'm not familiar with what's available for the Mac, but I'm sure you can google for it. –  Marnix A. van Ammers Apr 25 '10 at 23:01
