Safe Senders - Junk Mail


I have my junk Outlook 07 mail options set to No Filtering, yet it still
deletes about 400 junk mail items a day, which is VERY good.

However, I have checked "trust mail from my contacts". Outlook still deletes
all mail from my contacts unless I have sent mail to that contact.

I recently add three new contacts thinking if they were in my list of
contacts I would receive their mail, not the case, it all went to junk mail;
until I sent them a message.

Can this be corrected for anyone else that is new in my contacts?

Since the August Microsoft updates, Outlook 2003 moves e-mail from some 'Safe
Senders' to Junk e-mail - this occurs for standalone Outlook 2003 and Outlook
2003 connected to Exchange Server/SMB2003.

Safe Senders are in the 'Safe Senders' list as "@company.com" and do NOT
appear in the "Blocked Senders" list in any form.

This "change" is very recent and appears to have started with the August
2006 Microsoft updates (both systems are fully patched with August 2006
Microsoft updates).

Any ideas ???

Dear Expert,

The link to view the system that we developed through Lotus Notes has been automatically moved to the junk mail in Outlook 2003 and we have to manually add the sender's email address to the safe senders list to avoid it go to the junk mail again in future. Is there any other way that we can control this from the Exchange 2007 to let the system to automatically add certain email address to the safe senders list for all users mailbox?

I have added several e-mail addresses/domains to my safe sender's list but
their e-mails are still being dumped in my junk e-mail folder. I changed my
security settings to low and it is still happening. Please help!

Thanks!!

E-Mail from my Safe Senders are ending up in my Junk E-Mail Folder instead of
my Inbox.

for about 2 weeks now, emails from one particular colleague have been
automatically put into the junk mail folder. before, his emails got through
just fine (normal, without any special attention from my part). is this the
result of a microsoft update gone wrong?

when it first started happening, i tried to classify him as 'safe sender',
but that doesn't seem to work as i still get his emails in the junk folder.

any thoughts?




I have contacts in my address book going to junk mail. I have the address
book checked as a safe sender list. I don't show any more junk rules that
could be overriding this. I did notice that most of them are part of a
distribution group. Shouldn't Outlook see those address also????




for some reason email coming from addresses already stored in my safe senders
file are still getting sent to junk mail folder; anybody have any ideas how
to fix?

Thanks,




I have an issue where mant "trusted" senders are ending up in Junk mail.

I have added them individually to the Safe senders list, and the domain to
the safe senders list. But still they end up in Junk.

I am using Outlook 2007, on Vista Home.




In Outlook 2007, why would email go to the Junk mail folder even if an email
address and/or domain are on the safe recipient/safe sender list? Thanks in
advance.

Outlook 2003 Junk mail filter is ignoring entries in Safe Senders list and
mail is still being placed in Junk Mail. Multiple users who are using
Exchange 2003. All patches applied at both server and desktop levels.




Outlook 2003.

On the Junk Email, Safe Senders tab, I have select the
"Also trust e-mail from my Contacts" check box.

But email from people on my Contacts list still shows up in the Junk
folder.

Why doesn't all email from senders in my contact list automatically
show up in the Inbox?




I am running Outlook 2007 on Vista-64. Business E-mail comes to me from a
web hosting service. That service uses Spam Assassin which I have set to
detect email as potential spam.

I have my Outlook set to receive my contacts and those listed in safe
senders to go to the inbox. Some of the email I get goes to the Junk E-mail
folder even though they are in the safe senders list and as contacts. Why?

Doesn't Outlook decide on the rules we give it?
Is it using information from Spam Assassin?

Thanks,
Arthur




I see discussion of this but no resolution. I have Office 2007, and senders
who have been marked as safe continue to go to Junk mail folder. I am using
the "No Filters" option, but this makes no difference.

Does anyone have a work around?

I running Outlook 2007 SP2 and Windows 2003 SP2. I created a GP to reference
a safesenders.txt using the 'Specify path to Safe Senders list". Although I
can get other Outlook Junk Mail settinsg -- such as Protection Level -- to
work - I can't seem to get it reference my list. Perhaps, I don't know how
the list works or specifically where I should locate it or something. I
specify the correct path. It is a list of domains @domain.com format. Can
someone offer a suggestion to the problem or how best to troubeshoot?
Thanks

I am attempting to add a safe senders list referencing Tech Net document
'Configure junk e-mail settings in Outook 2007'. I have created a very small
list text file which contains a few domains I wish to whitelist. I have
created the Group Policy and can edit other settings, such as Security Level
-- and it works great. However, I cannot get the portion of the group policy
which pertains to the safesenders.txt file - referenced by the GP option
'Specify Path to Safe Senders List' to work. I am running Windows 2003 SP1
and the client is Windows 7/Outlook 2007. File is in formation @domain.com -
4 lines. I tried various file formats, file locations, and permissions. Any
help would be much appreciated. Does anyone know a precise formation,
location, permissions, etc.. I can't find anything on the net which more
details. File locations is %systemroot%/sysvol ....
I know the policy works -- because I can successful edit other things -- it
seems to be the file or its reference.

Thanks.
