Our office uses your product, and it has reduced spam greatly. Good job! However, since using your product, I have notice a new spammer technique that I, as a user, cannot block with the "blacklist" feature.

Spam mail I have Mailguard blocking using "*@*<domain name>" in the blacklist entry are now sending my email address in "From:" and "Reply-to." For example, I blocked spam from newsmax.com by adding blacklist entry "*@*newsmax.com". NewsMax is now sending me spam that bypasses Mailguard by setting my email address in their spam, as follows.

From: NewsMax.com <myuser@…> Reply-to: myuser@…>

How can I block this spam?
