Lesson 5. Using Mail Tools > Managing Junk Mail

Managing Junk Mail

Spam is a major problem for many email users, often clogging thier Inboxes with unwanted messages. The definition of spam is unwanted, unsolicited, mail, usually sent to sell you something, often sent indiscriminately to mailing lists—otherwise known as junk mail. Most organizations today have some sort of spam-blocker on their mail servers, but even so some mail gets past it. Your anti-virus software is set up to detect possible viruses, so it won’t stop this type of mail.

One Notes tool that can help you control spam to a degree, is the Block Mail from Sender tool. This can help you to block mail from a specific sender or a specific domain. But keep in mind that most spammers never do two spams purported to be from the same sender. So this feature isn’t a junk mail controller, but can help with those who continue to send you email from the same email address. To block email from a sender, click the Tools button on the Action bar and choose Block Mail from Sender. The Blocked Senders List dialog box appears (see Figure 5.6).
