Outlook 2003 Junk E-Mail Options


The Junk E-mail filter in Outlook 2003 is very good and works well to cut out most of the junk e-mail you receive. There are various levels that can be set and there are lots of options to both include and exclude certain e-mail addresses, domains, countries and languages.

The image shows the junk e-mail options control in Outlook 2003. It is called from the Junk E-mail command in the Actions menu of the program.

Shown is first set of options, which set the general level of protection against junk e-mail.

Note :-

1. The filter is set to Low which handles most situations successfully.

2. Other settings are much stricter but may cause more problems by classifying real e-mails as junk.

3. ‘Permanently delete suspected junk e-mail’ is not checked, as this allows occasional mistakes to be easily corrected.

4. The last option is checked as this protects against unsafe and fraudulent sites.

Experiment with the settings, so that they give the protection you require.

The second image shows the Safe Senders list, displayed by clicking the appropriate tab.

Note :-

1. This dialog is very comprehensive and you can add, edit and remove e-mail addresses.

2. You can also import and export these addresses to and from file.

3. Check boxes allow your contacts to be treated as safe and to automatically add anybody you e-mail.

Two other tabs, Safe Recipients and Blocked Senders are similar to Safe Senders. The last tab, International, allows blocking of certain countries and language types.

The Junk E-mail Options dialog in Outlook 2003 give a full set of options that in nearly all cases can make sure that your junk e-mail is reduced to a minimum, without any adverse affects.
