    Junk filters in OL2000 (2000/Sp1)

    I always add the garbage spam I get to the spam filter file in Outlook. Today, I made a mistake and added someone who I didn't want to be in there. Where exactly is this info stored? In a file or in the registry?

    The list is stored in a text file that will be stored in a directory that kinda sorta depends on your operating system. With Windows NT (which I have), it's stored as:

    C:WINNTProfilesMYPROFILEApplication DataMicrosoftOutlookJunk Senders.txt

    so you might search for the "Junk Senders.txt" file name if you can't find it right away.

    On the otherhand I'm not sure myself if it's "safe" to directly edit this file, but you can both add new names/addresss, and remove names/addressess that you've added previously with the same procedure:

    From the Help within Outlook:

    Add or remove an e-mail address from the list of unwanted e-mail senders:

    Click Inbox .

    Click Organize .

    Click Junk E-mail.

    Click the options link (ACTUALLY THIS IS LABELED "... for more options click here."

    To change the commercial e-mailers list, click Edit Junk Senders.

    To change the adult content senders list, click Edit Adult Content Senders.

    Hope this helps.

    go to rules wizard and locate your junk mail rule - click on Junk Senders and remove the names from the list that don't belong.
