    I am constantly getting spam inside my inbox, but there is no way to block this scam currently, because
    1. spammer keeps changing email address including its domain using auto email generator so that blocking the email does not work. (ex. asddfsdf@selingdrive.com, dfjkjlkdsfjl@whereurlove.com, etc)
    2. the content and subject of the email keeps changing so that I cannot block the email by keywords.

    But what I realized was, if I right click on email item and click "View Source" and see the html content, I see that this particular spammer uses particular html codes. But Outlook does not have a feature for me to block email using that html codes! I am keep getting spam from this particular spammer, but blocking by html codes is the only way to block this particular spammer.
