Ideas for filtering spam in Outlook

Post by wat0114 on 30/4/2012, 05:23

Hopefully this topic is okay under this forum. I've decided on a new approach to filtering spam in Outlook 2010. I'm now using "Safe lists only" in junk email options, allowing only Safe senders, Safe recipients, and those in my Contacts folder, in combination with a Blocked Senders list. I don't know what others have noticed, but I notice the word "info" is in the address of ~90% of the spam addresses in my Blocked Senders list; eg: **cellphones@business******.info (the "*" replaces some characters). It's incredible how many spam email addys contain this word Surprised so in an effort to simplify things with Blocked senders list, I've created a rule that sends all email with this word in the address to the Junk email folder. I will try this for a week or so to see how it goes.

I'm wondering what others do to filter spam using Outlook or even a different email client? Thanks!
