    Computer help...Outlook for XP


    I have been getting over run with spam from all the emailing I do through trade portals and what not.

    The problem is, apparently with the XP Version of Outlook (home version) you cannot block a sender...only label it jusnk mail so it is a different color in your inbox.

    I searched online, but the only version that seems to totally block senders is Outlook 03, and I could not download their files.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Are you using Office XP Outlook or is this Outlook Express?

    You could try creating a rule?

    for outlook express try this:

    Open Outlook Express


    • Click on Tools
    • Scroll down to Message Rules
    • Click on Blocked Senders List
    • Click Add
    • Fill in the menu asking for the blocked senders email address
    • Click Mail and/or News Messages, whichever applies
    • Click OK

    for outlook, look at this link:

    You could also try this, but it may not work or some of the commands may have changed:
