Chapter 28. Creating and Using Rules > Dealing with Junk Mail

Dealing with Junk Mail

If you use Outlook to receive Internet e-mail, you probably receive a lot of junk mail that you'd rather not have to bother with. Outlook contains a built-in filter you can turn on so that messages containing certain words and phrases in the subject or body are ignored. If you don't turn on the filter, messages containing these words and phrases are handled normally.

To see the list of words and phrases Outlook looks for, open the file named Filters.txt. This file is usually in a subfolder under the folder that contains Outlook. The easiest way to find it is to use the Windows Find or Search command or, from within Outlook, choose Tools, Advanced Find. Double-click the file name to open it in Windows Notepad or another text editor.
