I want to mention that the ThunderBird e-mail application by Mozilla 
works great and groups the topics appropriately. It looks fairly nice 
and appropriate too. I use it on Windows computers and a variety of 
"plugins" end up available. A variety of ways exist to block e-mails 
from specific domains, if I recall correctly, but then I mostly work 
with Microsoft Windows systems (I apologize). The ThunderBird program 
runs on a variety of systems including Linux, et al.

I currently operate no DNS or X-Mail systems but I know all systems 
provide a way to block outgoing mail and HTTP/HTTPS access to specific 
domains, even the Microsoft Windows systems.

I miss the old newsgroups that used to exist and I miss Outlook Express 
too. ThunderBird provides a way to group the topics and it works very well.

I hope this helps you with your e-mail problems. ThunderBird ends up as 
open-source software and I think they provide already compiled software 
as well to many different operating systems. The text-size and other 
(font selection) within the application either works as the operating 
system configures it, or as configured in the about:config or other 
configuration files.
