Hey friend,

Personally I enjoy rspamd for filtering spam with Postfix:

That said, there’s only one way that I can think of for a “one size fits all” fix on this. Are they sending these emails from a specific server, or through a large mailing service? If they’re sending from one server, grab that server’s IP from your logs and black hole it like this:

ip route add blackhole 1.1.1.1
(Replace 1.1.1.1 with their server IP)

If it’s always the same sender, I’m pretty sure this still works, despite it’s age:
