Filter Spam Mail

Microsoft Outlook Express Version 6.0

Free Download

Spammers are always inventing new ways to get around filters. These settings work good but they won't stop everything.


In the folder list on the left side of Outlook Express Window, right-click the LOCAL FOLDERS icon and choose NEW FOLDER.



In the FOLDER NAME box, type the name "SPAM" and click "OK".


Now create a filter to apply against your email that will move SPAM to the Spam Folder.

The goal is to create a filter to look for typical Spam words and phrases and move these messages to the Spam Folder.

Click on Tools, choose Message Rules then choose MAIL


Click on NEW


This is the window where you create specific rules that the filter will use. Check SUBJECT LINE:


Check MOVE TO SPECIFIED FOLDER


Click on CONTAINS SPECIFIC WORDS link


Enter words or phrases that you want the filter to find: Viagra, Loan, sex, date, free... You get the idea

Click OK

Click on the MOVE TO SPECIFIED FOLDER link


Choose the SPAM FOLDER you created earlier - Click OK


Enter a name for the rule you created and click OK

Click On APPLY NOW


Click On the APPLY NOW button (again)


Click OK on the next window and you're done!
