You Can Block Some Spam But It Seems You Can Never Stop It All!

If you have an e-mail address, you have more than likely found spam in your inbox at some point in time. Spam is what you would refer to as unwanted e-mail and there are a few ways in which you can try and keep it out of your inbox.

In Outlook Express, one of the ways in which you can prevent spam is to use the block senders feature. You have the option of blocking individual e-mail addresses. However, sometimes a much more efficient approach is to block an entire domain.

You can do this within Outlook Express by clicking the Tools menu, pointing to Message Rules, and clicking Block Senders List. From the Message Rules dialog box, make sure the Block Senders tab is selected and click the Add button. From the Add Sender dialog box, type in the domain name. You can then choose what you want blocked: mail messages, news messages, or both. Click OK. Click Ok to close the Message Rules dialog box.

Now when a message from the domain is sent to you, Outlook Express will automatically delete the message. And you are one step closer to being spam free, although keep in mind that this method can only block POP accounts.

Here are a Few More Ways To Create Rules in Outlook Express for Windows

1. Open Outlook Express

2. Click on TOOLS

3. Select MESSAGE RULES and click MAIL

4. If this is the first rule created, the NEW MAIL RULE window will open (if this is not the first rule created, click NEW in the MAIL RULES tab)

5. In the first section of the box, labeled "Select the Conditions for your rule," select desired conditions by putting a check in the box next to the desired condition label (you must select at least one condition and you can specify multiple conditions for a single rule by clicking more than one check box)

6. In the second section, labeled "Select the Actions for your rule," choose desired actions for your rule by putting a check in the box next to the desired action label (you must select at least one action and you can specify multiple actions for a single rule by clicking more than one check box)

7. In the third section of the box, labeled "Rule Description," you may specify particular criterion for selected conditions and actions by clicking any hyperlinks in this section (for example, if you have selected multiple conditions, click the "and" hyperlink in the RULE DESCRIPTION section to specify whether all of the rule conditions must be met before the specified action occurs (AND) or whether at least one must be met (ONE))

8. In the Rule Description area, be sure to click each word or phrase hyperlink so the rule functions to your expectations

9. In the fourth section of the box, labeled "Name of the rule," type the desired name for the rule

10. Click OK

11. Repeat steps 4 through 10 as needed

The rules you have just created will filter your messages as you directed until you change them. You can change them as often as you like from the Mail Rules tab. Simply highlight the rule you would like to change and click the appropriate function: Modify, Copy, Remove or Apply Now.
