    Junk mail handling (outlook 03)

    I have the option to select as a mail handling rule
    *Suspected to be junk e-mail or from junk senders
    I want this to be in two separate options
    Outlook is useless at determining weather or not something is junk e-mail
    yet junk senders is meant to be my black list.
    Is there a way of using my junk senders black list without letting outlook deal with mail it suspects to be junk in the same manner.

    Hi Paul,

    You can go to Tools | Rules and Alerts to establish the criteria for redirecting your incoming e-mail, If you added your black listed items as the first entry in the Rules area then these will be filtered out before getting into Outlook's Junk E-mail filter.

    Cheers, Bob
    Regards,
    Bob

    Re: Junk mail handling (outlook 03)

    I am curious if your comment about Outlook is useless in determining junk mail is based on your experience with prior versions of Outlook or with Outlook 2003. With my junk mail filter set to High, Outlook is catching 85-90% of junk with VERY few false positives.

    In addition to Bob's reply check this article Reaching into Outlook's toolbox - Configuring the Outlook Junk Mail Filter

    It contains some background info about how MS worked this, and also what is Junk.
