I have not heard of such a thing.
I wonder if you have not (inadvertently) got the pizza spammer in your "Previous Recipients" list, which - depending upon your Junk Preferences - can be exempt from filtering. See Mail > Window > Previous Recipients.
It should be easy to make a Rule which moves messages from that domain to any desired folder, e.g., the Junk folder. See "Manage messages using rules" in Mail Help.
Was the pizza any good?

Thanks, I have done that, but I would rather use the built-in "Junk Mail" capability. Among other things, I don't want to have my rules all cluttered up, and the color coding is wrong when you do it with a rule.
No, I've never tried the pizza. We already have a favorite Pizza Place - Anthony's Coal Fired. If there's one near you, give it a try!
As I understood it, Mail is supposed to "learn" about junk senders when you click the Thumbs-Down button, but for some reason that is not working for this particular domain. I know some e-mail clients will allow messages through if the sender is in your address book, so I have removed this sender from Contacts; we'll see if that makes a difference.
All the above notwithstanding, I still would like to know if there is a way to manually edit the list!

There is no "list". Mail's Junk filter is based on an analysis of the content of the message, not on the sender. Perhaps something about these particular messages makes them hard to learn to recognize. For example, if the message is just an attached image with no text, there may be not much for the algorithm to work with.
Normally, the Junk filter entirely skips messages from a sender in your Contacts. You can turn that off (Preferences > Junk Mail), but it makes no sense to me to have an unwanted correspondent in your address book anyway.

Thanks for the clarification. The spam in question is usually nearly 100% images, so that's probably why the Junk Mail algorithm appeared to never "learn". I thought there was a banned sender's list as well. I can do that with a rule.
