"Display Name" instead of sender's address in Junkmail?

Hello,
In spam filters I can't find any way to add the "Diplay Name" of a sender to
my junk mail folder to permanently delete it. As example. I receive 4 or 5
pieces a day from: "Display Name" "At Home Typers" when in fact "At Home
Typers" is only the Display Name, not the actual senders e-mail address. I
would like to be able to have "At Home Typers" deleted everytime, regarless
of who the sender is, but it doesn't seem possible. If there is a way around
this it would be very helpful to know.
Thanks for your help.
Lou

Lou. it seems that you and I are on the same page today. I, too, am looking
for an answer to the display name as junk dilemma also. I get numerous junk
emails from both Pfizer and Lilly somethingorother... Pfizer Ltd, Pfizer
Plan, Pfizer Inc. All are junk and use a different email address. I would
love to know how to kill any email that arrives with 'Pfizer' in the display
name.

Use a rule that looks for "At Home Typers" in the headers.

Also be aware that the phrase that you add to the search list is case
sensitive. I had tried the headers rule previously but did not test for case
sensitivity. My problem is also now solved. Thank you, Brian.

It shouldn't be. The last time I tested it was not.
