Cannot set a wildcard to remove spam email. Lately I keep getting a shed load of spam from "webservice@" then multiple different addresses! Does AOL allow spam mail wildcards???

This doesn't help a bit in removing GoldWild spam that keeps changing it's address .GoldWild@* or any variation, doesn't work. AOL's spam controls are terrible. I should be able to block just GoldWild without the "@xxxxx".com/net, etc.
