Subject: eMail Spam
On a daily basis, I receive 4 spam email. The domain name is variable except for @*.pw. Can Trend Micro tweak their security software to block this type of nuisance?
I have attempted to identify the same via my lists of blocked senders, but apparently the software does not take wildcards such as I have shown.
Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi @MICHAEL.G.MILLS, thanks for asking here!

As part of Maximum Security, an Antispam Toolbar feature is available for mail programs installed on your PC. (e.g. MS Outlook). If you have set up the mail program to receive emails from external email services like Gmail and Yahoo Mail, the spams from those email accounts will be filtered. If you haven't enabled our Antispam Toolbar in your mail client, please try it and let us know if it helps or not:
Using the Antispam Toolbar of Trend Micro Security
  1. You can go to Configuring the Antispam Toolbar, and change the setting of "Spam Email Filter" to "High" level. 
  2. You also can report the emails as a spam to Trend Micro. Please refer to the screenshot below:
If you use email service's website directly (e.g. gmail.com, mail.yahoo.com), then Antispam Toolbar cannot filter spam mails there.

Please let us know if the solution works for you. Thanks!

Thank you for the reply. 

I am using the antispam toolbar, and I daily report these 4 emails with that button.  I have been reluctant to change to "high" level, but will give it a try.  My preference is that I would be able to block these 4 emails and not even see them.
 
Please acknowledge that Trend Micro picks up the domain as I have noted, thus @*.pw.
