Bombarded with Sky email scams; how can I filter this?

My business email is receiving 1-3 scam emails every single day from a huge variety of random email addresses with the typical "Your account is about to be deleted unless you follow this link" kind of nonsense. How can I filter these? It is a chore constantly deleting and reporting, I would like to set a filter in place to direct these straight to spam, but the way I tried to do it was unsuccessful. I'm not very e-mail savvy so, whilst I know this is something that can be done, I don't actually know how.

 

All tips and tricks appreciated!

Sky don't provide business email services, so I assume it's your personal email account that you're using for business. 

 

There's no realistic way of setting up a filter to automatically divert these emails to your spam or trash folder, unless they're coming from the same email address (which is unlikely) all the time.

 

Practically all you can do is to continue to mark them as spam, and their number should fall over time. Or switch to another email provider, I guess.

It is going to tricky doing this, but you could try using the word deleted but then you might get some that don't use the word so all you can do is to keep marking them as spam and hope that after a while the system learns so they do not end up in your inbox.
