Being on the receiving end of and having to wade through all that nonsense is a huge waste of time, taking you away from what's real and what matters most: your clients, your family, your People magazine... Seriously, you can find yourself losing hours of valuable time each week trying to separate the wheat from the chaff (or if you're gluten free, the kernel from the tassel).
Your bouncer, the Junk Mail Filter, evaluates each incoming message (patron) and examines it closely to see if it might be spam (riff-raff) based on several factors including the time it was sent and the content of the message It's like how a bouncer can get a read on someone wanting in simply by the time they show up—too early, maybe—the look of desperation in their eyes, and the sort of handbag they're carrying. (Hey, I didn't say it was FAIR and JUST; what it is, is SMART and SAFE.)
It's important to note that the Junk Email Filter cannot prevent spam from entering your mailbox; what it does is moves it to the Junk Email folder (think of it as a holding pen at a club for suspected schmoes). Then you can go in there and decide what is junk and what isn't.
The greatest thing about this filter is that you can train it as you want. When you boot up Outlook for the first time, the protection level is set to Low but you can go in and change it. But also, you have the opportunity to add things to the list of things that the filter should be looking for. You can add to the:
You can read about how to add names to those lists here.
So listen: Sometimes we all need a little help keeping things safe and irritant-free. I'm not telling you to hire a battalion of armed guards or treat every piece of mail with suspicion or anxiety. If you have Outlook, you have a built-in bouncer, and this guy is willing to go the distance and ferret out the junk in your life.
For one, search enging for this site is useless. Two, I did beta testing on the MS Office 2010. Documents that I created would not open on another computer that only had MS Office 2003.
Hi- Can you expound further on the search engine issue so that we can look into it?
—What were you searching for?
— What (if any) results did you get?
— If you were searching for a solution to your other issue, it's possible we don't have content about that since we're not a support site. Have you tried office.com/support?
Look forward to hearing from you
Does this work for 2007 also....yes some of us are not quite up to speed, actually lucky (i think) to have 2007.
I use 2007 Pro - unfortunately it only permanently deletes one email and then stops processing ( the "stop processing anymore" box is automatically checked). When I run rules, it only does the first one. Why?
Sharon, Totally works for 2007. All the info you need is here: office.microsoft.com/.../CH010103271.aspx
(Having 2007 IS "up to speed", in my opinion; it's not the shiny newness of the tool that counts; it's how you use it, right??? ;-)
I do know and understand that not everyone can (or wants to) upgrade with every new release but I do recommend it if you can in order to have the best experience
Mike — It's hard to know what's happening with your rules unless I can really see everything (which, obviously, is impossible). My best guess is that there's a conflict somewhere. Since this blog isn't really a support site, here are a few places to look for answers (and I have a feeling your answer is a fairly simple one):
— Outlook 2007 rules (the main office.com support site): office.microsoft.com/.../CH010103271.aspx
— Outlook MVPs (these folks are awesome AND smart AND available): office.microsoft.com/.../outlook-help-and-how-to-FX101816808.aspx
— Discussion Groups — a community forum made up of questions & answers from customers/MVPs/MSFT employees (I’ve had, by far, the most success here than anyplace else. If you’re having an issue, chances are someone else is too): www.microsoft.com/.../default.mspx
— “Microsoft Answers” (another community forum): answers.microsoft.com/.../default.aspx
I hope this helps. Will you let me know?
Can you please tell us what is the difference between Macros and QuickParts in Word 2007?
When should we use one over the other?
Why do we need two?
@ Crabby User: Try this to find your answeer answers.microsoft.com/.../default.aspx (they are used for very different things and I think someone there can explain it better than I).
I've have tried endless variations to stop HSBC spam but still it pops into my Inbox. How can I stop it?
Euphrosene: First of all, what a great name! Beautiful (if I'm saying it correctly: you-FRO-ze-nee).
I'm not sure what HSBC spam is; can you elaborate? Who or whatever it is sometimes spammers are able to get around the junk mail filter by using return address NAMES that aren't in your junk mail filter. My suggestion is to pose this question (and be as specific as possible; I do know that others have had the same issue) to the Microsoft Answers Outlook forums (answers.microsoft.com/.../default.aspx).
Let me know how it turns, out, OK?

I am at the end of my tewther with Outlook 2010, and am seriously considering uninstalling it! It systematically blocks content from e-mails in my inbox, even though I am constantly telling it to add the senders in question to my "safe senders list". It's driving me nuts!!! If I hadn't paid much fine gold for it, I'd junk it, but I hate Livemail. BRING BACK OUTLOOK EXPRESS, pleez...
@Jenny - I'm sorry that's happeneing; I'm sure it's frustrating as all you-know-what. I don't know what would cause that but I'd head over to Microsoft Answers, a place where MVPS (experts in the field), Microsoft employees and other users work to solve individuals' issues. This is the one for Outlook.answers.microsoft.com/.../default.aspx While you do that, I'll email the big group here that raises questions and gives answers to Outlook issues. I'll get back to you when I hear something.
Regarding Outlook Express, that is a program that came with Windows (up until the release of Vista). For Vista it was retooled and renamed Windows mail. For Windows 7, it's Windows Live Mail and you can download it here: explore.live.com/windows-live-mail.
