Question: How do I filter junk email with Outlook Express?
If you're sick of getting junk email (commonly known as spam) telling you how to get rich quick or how to make the sender rich by sending him money you can use Outlook Express's built-in filtering to toss it in the trash automatically. Go ahead and open Outlook Express and let's make a filter.|
|4. Click on "Add".|
|5. Paste the email address in the "From:" box.|
|6. Check the "Delete off server" box.|
Your filtering doesn't have to stop here of course. You can build any number of additional filters. You can also do some detective work on a spam message since it's possible for the junk emailer to hide his real address and use a fake or innocent address as the originator. You can study the message's headers and search out the domains of all the sendmail gateways and actually filter out ALL the mail coming through them. As you can guess this can become a real research project and if you're not careful, blocking email by domains could stop you receiving mail you really want.
