    I have a lot of SPAM from Vagra.com. Strange is that I am a sender of
    these messages but TB writes "" in "Sender" column and my
    adress in Sender field.

    I have a filter with Viagra in Sender, Subject etc. but it does not work
    .. How to set up filter?

    i can't recall what types of info tb can filter on (headers, replyto, etc)
    since you may someday send yourself mail, obviously you don't want to filter out
    your own address (which the spammers sometimes fake, as in your example)

    otherwise, if tb's filtering doesn't seem to "learn" to kill those fake self-sent mails,
    then you could be best off trying an external spam filter.

    check freeware ratings groups, sites.

    i like k9
    i liked spammihilator (spelling?) a few years ago, but it was bulkier. however it
    does imap and k9 doesn't.
    k9 hasn't changed (unless very recently), and is still good anyway.
    i think spammihilator author keeps working on the app.

    i know k9 has additional blacklist/whitelist. i expect spammihilator also has those.
    but you'd need to check if they'll filter on that sender name "rosa@va-fufu..fuuu-
    ever"
