    Is there a way to set Outlook so that any message not in English, for instance, will be blocked (moved to a folder)?

    Chuck, do you have an International tab in your Junk Email Settings dialog? Does it have a Blocked Encodings option?

    John;

    So I would "check off" all of the code types except US ASCII, Western European, [and Latin 3 + 9] if all I want is English?

    Yes. You might even think about blocking Western European if you don't have any contacts of any kind there.

    Hmmm, I think Western European (ISO-8859-1) likely was the default before Unicode (UTF-8), and some senders may still use it.

    Funny you can't block the proprietary Windows-1252 encoding.

    Jefferson, I don't know near enough to even venture a guess. Ass long as I can block all the brouhaha that comes through though, I'll be happy.
