Blocked Senders List???

I'm not sure how long this has been happening, but I'm sure it was OK a
while back!

I add addresses and domains to my blocked senders list, they appear there
OK. But next time I run Outlook Express the list has gone!! Cant find
anything on the Microsoft site.

Anyone got any ideas???

We have Exchange 2007 with Sender Filtering enabled under the Hub Transport.  I have been adding specific e-mail addresses that we would like to block, however, I am finding that we are still receiving e-mail from addresses that have been added to the blocked sender list.  Any thoughts?
Also, are there any "wild cards" that can be used in the blocked sender list?  for example, some senders try to get around being blocked by incrementing a number appended to the senders name (i.e. sender1@spam.com, sender2@spam.com, etc.).  Is there any way to use a wild card to block these (i.e. sender*@spam.com)?
One last question.  Is is possible to block everything with a .ru extension?

Thanks in advance.

While using Exchange Server 2003's Outlook Web Access client, if I
right-click on a message and select "Add sender to blocked sender list" I
get the following error:

An error occurred processing your Junk E-mail lists. You are over the size
limit on the server. There a few in the list already but not a ton.

I have confirmed that this user (or any user for that matter) are anywhere
close to the mailbox store size limit. There are send/recieve limits of
200,000 KB but that's waaaaay more than anyone seems to be using.

Any ideas, is there just a max with OWA?

Thanks,
Marc.

What is the interface to programmatically add a sender to the Blocked Sender
List?

TIA.

I noticed that when installing the new sp2 for exchange, one of the items is
that if you have the v1 of the intelligent message filter installed, you
might get a message to uninstall it during the exchange sp2 install process.

My question is this: since I have a very big list of blocked senders that I
spent a LOT of time inputting, is there a way to input them all back into the
blocked senders list after I install the new sp2 for exchange? Is there a txt
file that I could copy/paste the list into in the new intelligent message
filter? The list is in the exchange system
manager>"domainname"(exchange)>global settings>message delivery>message
delivery properties>sender filtering tab

I have kept all of the blocked senders in a text file for backup purposes.
It would be a shame not to be able to reuse them again since I have spent so
much time amassing them.

HELP!

Thanks

I am running Exchange Server 2003 and my Outlook 2003 client has a large
Blocked Sender list to filter Junk E-mail. I am getting a message saying
the size of the folder managed by the server is out of space.

Is there a way to increase the size of this list in my Exchange Server?

When I first experienced this problem, my list had around 10,000 entries. I
have exported the list a few times and run a macro to re-import the list as
only unique domain names and this has allowed the size of my list to grow to
around 11,390 entries, but is a slow process and I am getting this message
more frequently ... I don't think I will be able to keep doing this much
longer.

Thanks for any advice on this problem.

Hi, i use outlook 2003 with exchange 2003 and had several entries in the
blocked sender list of the junk email filter. But outlook ignores these
entries, emails from the blocked sender are still delivered to my inbox. On
the exchange server the Exchange Intelligent Message Filter is installed. I
think, regardless wheter the IMF rates the mail, he should always take care
of the blocked sender list... or is this wrong?

Is there a way to backup the blocked senders list?

The reason is that I recently had to do a bare box rebuild (backup was
corupt). I want to input my blocked senders into the exchange. Could I do
this via a copy/paste? I have a complete list in a text file of all the
blocked senders>over 200 addresses. I would hate to have to input them one at
a time.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to obtain the "blocked-senders" list from a user's mailbox
using WebDAV?

On Outlook 2003, and Exchange 2003 OWA, a user can add email addresses in a
"blocked senders" list. Any emails from users in this list are treated as
junk email. I need to obtain this list from the exchange server mail folders.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Hi

My manager exported his block sender list in to text file.

Now he wants me to add them in to server Block sender list (Antispam tab)
How to add more than 1000 emails addresses in to "sender filtering"  "Block sender" list with one go.

Regards,

I am using Outlook 2007 under Windows XP
When I add an email address to the "Blocked Senders" list,
for example "@ehpub.com" without quotes
I still received emails from this address in my Inbox
Why?
Thank you
Eli

I have outlook 2003 and i'm receveing alot of spam emails, is there a way to create a hotkey for choosing the spammy email and sending them to the blocked senders list?

I recently lost my system due to hardware failure. I have rebuilt my syste
and I would like to try to get my blocked senders list from the old
installation. I do have access to the old Hard drive I just can't boot from
it. This list took years to create and I don't want to do it all over again

why can't I select all my junk email and add all of the domains (or at least
addresses) to my blocked senders list?

I should be able to select domains like hotmail.com, msn.com and have the
program ignore "blocking" this domain but not add that domain to a safe list.

Secondly, I should be able to multi-select junk mail messages and add them
to my junk senders list.

Thirdly, I should be able to multi-select in the list all the addresses in
which I'd like to block domains and they would be added

Lastly, I should be able to have wildcard characters in my blocking list of
domains e.g @*.advicecounter.net

There should be away, when you have selected multiple e-mails to add them to
the blocked sender list via rightclick rather than just sending them to the
junk e-mail folder.

So why doesn't Microsoft come up with a more effective way to filter the
junk? It seems that the SPAMMERS are always the WINNERS in this poker game.
There are thousands of ligitimate adverstisers or companies nationwide, not
on our approved sender's list, that we might have an interest in viewing
their offerings when they are sent. Interestingly, such companies don't tend
to be a problem, it is the glut of pornography, pharmaceuticals, and
fraudulant offers that we would like to see effectively filtered.

Accidentally, I added two of my most common email senders to my "blocked
senders list" I went to the list and "removed from blocked senders list" but
when I get email from them the email goes automatically to my "delete" box.
If I forget to check my Delete box, I miss their emails completely. Am I
missing a step? What else can I do to get them to be unblocked?

what to do about some emails that cannot be added to blocked sender list

I repaired outlook and it still didn't add te functionality. What i am
looking for is the ability to add a senders domain to a blocked sender list.
When you right click a specific e-mail and go to junk mail you get a sub menu
with options:
1-Add sender to Blocked sender list
2-Add sender to safe sender list
3-Add sender Domain to safe sender list
4-Add receipient to Safe sender list.

However i don't have theoption to add sender Domain to blocked sender list.
Can you tell me how to restore this?

I need to do the following when I hover over spam, a single e-mail at a time:

Right-Click;
The letter "J" for Junk E-Mail;
The letter "B" for Add Sender to Blocked Senders List

I tried creating a VB macro by doing this in MS Word; the Right-Click didn't
take hold, though.

I appreciate your help.

Is there anyway to set up a filter that can look at a portion of "Subject"
line and send this to blocked sender list?

What to add more than one email address to Outlook 2003's Block
Senders List?

Export
Go to File
Import and Export
Export to a file
Comma Separated Values
Junk E-Mail folder
Name the file
Click Browse for the location
Map Custom Fields
Clear Map
Drag "From(Address)"from Values to Field
Finish
Open the file, save as, with txt extension

Import
Tools
Junk Email
Junk Email Options
Block Sender
Import from File
Select text file

Wouldn't do this everyday but maybe every week depending on the amount
of spam you get. If the junk emails are not going to the junk email
folder beforehand. I deleted them then move them to the junk email
folder before I do the export.

Hi

I had added a name to the blocked senders list in Outlook 2002. I then

Help!!!

I have outlook express 6. Can I sort the blocked senders list to search for
an address that accidentally got on this list?

Please help!

I received several junk email this morning. When I right click on the peice
of mail., the add sender to block senders list has a red cross out icon on
the dropdown. There is also a red cross out icon on the junk mail options
line. Can anyone help me fix this problem. I am using Outlook 2007

Should I use the @ when entering domain name to Blocked Senders List? Do I
use a Wild Card? Instead of johndoe@domain.com or Johndoe @domain.net, should
it be *@domain.net ?
