... Hi CS'ers

Just wanted to know if anyone here uses Outlook Express 6 and knows how to block multiple email addresses?

For the moment, i have to manually open the email one by one, and then click on the sender's name and then right click, choosing the block sender option.. is there a faster and more efficient way of doing this?

Kindly enlighten. :)

Cheers!

This is the same as open email->right click email->add to spam list.

Sadly, this is the feature I love to have also and wished Office 11 can implement it. However, it is not implemented.

Wolfus, your way is the only way to add people to spam list. However, spammer these days are damme smart and usually use a lot of funny email address to spam. Thus they usually can escape your spam list filtering.

You can try to block an entire domain, however, note that important mail from the domain will be filtered too.

Note: I have around 300 spam in my mailbox everyday :)

Thought about that, but kinda figured people move around and change all the whilst... might lose out on contacts.
