I am being inundated with annoying messages from "women" who all share the similar email address format i.e "susie_skank@susie_skank.x, y or z".. Cannot see how to filter these pests. I have MailWasher.

Wouldn't that rather fit into SuperUser? – sinni800 Jun 21 '12 at 10:59

I am not familiar with the software, but from what I have found you are able to input a regular expression as a filter to emails. If you use (\w+_\w+)@$1.\w{1,3} as a filter, it should take care of your problem. :) However, if it does not, Mailwasher's regular expression engine may not support capturing, in that case replace $1 with \1, Best of luck! :D
