Yes, you just need to setup a filter using this word within MWPro, then once you find it is working correctly and not catching any legitimate emails, set it to auto delete the email.

Check out the Filter tips here:

http://www.firetrust.com/en/products/ma ... d-features

And under, Help>>Help>>Topics>>Spam Tools>>Using Filters for details on making a filter.

(I'd recommend you set the filter to check the entire header for the text)

You can set your filters, (Settings>>Spam Tools>>Filters>>click a filter>>Edit) to auto delete by selecting this option under the Actions tab there...

No, no need to leave your PC on all the time, however you just need to ensure you check mail in MW first to delete any spam before checking mail in any email program.

Re the filter, yes, as per below screenshot...(if your spelling was incorrect (was not sure) just type in the correct spelling.. :)

Yes, you can filter anything in the email you like, just check the IP is the same in each email from them, then use that IP address instead of the text, "CANADIAN PHARNACY" in that same filter...

No, exact same filter, but replace: CANADIAN PHARNACY with the users IP, eg: 161.81.81.91 or whatever it is... you can check the IP addresses in MWpro by clicking the email, then just above the preview pane click "Show email info">>Source tab.
