I added the e-mail address to the list of filters, and then I sent
myself a test message "from" an address that meets the match, and the
email still went through...  Any suggestions?

Assuming we are talking about Exchange 2000

ft_E
xchange_2000.html

Now, if you know the IP address of the server that sent the message you
can also into the properties for your SMTP Virtual Server > Access >
Connections and you can add the offending server to the list of
computers that you want to reject connection attempts from.

Where is the configuration to filter out entire domains?

The From field can be faked.  Normally for me I open up the mail in
Outlook click on "View" and go to "Options" to look at the email
envelope.  You should see which smtp server that is sending these junk.
For me I just block the domain from the smtp address.

Not foolproof, one time I actually block a ISP in UK.. Ha Ha .. and my
user scream at me because her brother is using that ISP...

We use the built in exchange filtering quite heavily to block the tons
of garbage email we get.  Adding 5-10 new filters every day is a pain,
but its worth it in the long run.

yesterday I received a new group of junk mails from a source labeled
as.. [%%email.addr%%]

How do I add this kind of completely invalid email address to the filter
list... and isn't exchange supposed to weed   this invalid garbage out
anyway?

There is no @ sign in the address so I have no idea how to label it in
the filter list.

Thanks
