If they have a consistent subject line or certain words or phrases that would not be in normal e-mail, you can block them using the subject line instead of the e-mail address - at least most blockers allow this. Or you may need to install a more sophisticated spam blocker that can use AI to identify spam. In the meantime, put the people who are going into your spam on your "whitelist" and they will get through in the future. You may still have to check for a while.
I can tell you that I have never seen one of these, because Microsoft's 365 default spam blocker is catching them. Occasionally I do still have to rescue someone from the spam folder. If you are not using 365 (and there are lots of good reasons not to) I would recommend SpamBully. It can take a few adjustments but will take a lot of the pain out of your life!

Subject: [Tweeters] Requesting guidance regarding the continuing problem with sex oriented emails that began with the Tweeters Breach.
I had never experienced receiving sexually-oriented email until the Tweeters breach. At first I received them as a response to sending any email to Tweeters. Others reported the same.
I kept deleting them or sending them to junk mail, hoping I would stop receiving them. Almost all of the 500+ I have received are now going directly to junk mail.
Often 5-6 a day.
I do not open them, but I look in junk mail for real tweeters postings.
The emails to Tweeters by BB, Ellen, Gary, and several others go directly to Junk mail and I value and don’t want to miss- the information they share.
Each time I look for their emails to Tweeters, I find another 5-6 unwanted sexually oriented “offers”.
I would value any guidance anyone can offer me so that I can block them. Receiving them is very annoying! How have others dealt with this Tweeters breach?
