    Handeling Junk messages (OL 2003)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    I have my Outlook 2003 junk setting at Low. This is yielding the least amount of false negatives, or is it false positives <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>.

    Well here is what I want to do:

    1) I want to go to my junk folder,
    2) Find a message that is NOT junk,
    3) Right-Mouse-Click on it and from the menu choose Junk E-mail and then Mark as Not Junk,
    4) Then I get a dialog that says: Mark as not junk with the option to trust messages from an account to sent to an account.

    Great!!! but now I have to do this process for all messages... <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/confused3.gif border=0 alt=confused3 width=45 height=45>

    Why can't I have the software find all the messages that are coming/going to these accounts that I say are OK, and save me the 4 step X 1000s of messages process?

    I mean you can apply rules to messages already in your In box, why not something similar?

    Is there something similar that is automated?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure I understand your predicament. Are you saying that the account or address information for the 1000 "false positive" messages is different for every message? If so, you are building a rules database that might be impractically large. I don't use Outlook 2003, so I don't know whether there is a more efficient way to do it (e.g., by domain or sender, rather than individual address.

    Sorry my question was not as clear as it should be. After reading, and also looking at the OLH, I realized that all I had to do is move the mouse pointer just a bit above the Junk e-mail option on the Context Sensitive sub menu, and use the Create Rule.

    What I wanted to do is once I assign a message that is in the Junk folder as NOT junk, I wanted Outlook to fetch all messages from that particular sender and move them to the Inbox as not junk.

    The Create Rule submenu has that feature. After the rule has been created, you can run the rule on the message already in the junk folder.

    Now the question is:

    Since I have a lot of senders in my Safe Recipents/Sender lists, how do I make it work such that any message send from these accounts, will NOT be marked as Junk?

    Thanks again

    PS what is with the duck??? You miss Friends?

    Friends? Did that involve a duck?? Actually I just posted that picture temporarily. I'll have a new one soon.
