Well, thank you, I appreciate it. No offence, but the whole thing has been really driving me mad.

Since your provider apparently hosts it's own mail, you'd need to see if they have blocking ability. I could find nothing about their email at all. A HOSTS file can block the pages the emails lead to, if you add every one by ip address or domain name.

Hosts File : Use in Windows 7 / Vista

This does not block the emails from arriving, but rather blocks the ability to visit the sites they contain. Most spammers have many sites, and change them quite often as they are taken down. You'd have to add more items to the HOSTS file.

The best bet is via the emails own blocking ability, if it exists.

Is it possible to just block an email from a certain e-mail address on the router or any way before it comes to inbox folder to any user?

The thing is, I know what seems suspicious and what not but my mother just won't recognize spam mail as she gets attracted to the stuff so she would click on it and this results in many adware and toolbars on the computer.

It is really annoying so what I need is a program, or any router setting that would prevent e-mail from loading these mails and even those mails from another users that of course, I don't and should not know the password.

Thanks for any help in advance.
You need answers I need information.
The answer is yes... you can block/filter spam msgs.

How? Well, you see .... that's why I need specific information - there are far too many Web based eMail clients and a few too many PC based eMail clients to give you a magic wand.

Most clients have some built in filtering - you have to create the filter though. It's easy and after a short while, your spam is 0

There are also 3rd party filters, but I have never found it necessary to emply any of them. The built in features work well enough if you configure them properly

No magic wand - shucks. Google search is the next best thing.

After you read about filtering, specific to your client, ask a few specific questions after you mention the specific client, ISP, and Mail server you use of course.
