Outlook 2007 Block Sender


Is there a 'maximum' number of blocked senders that will be accepted in Blocked Senders before older blocked senders will be dropped off to accomodate new blocked senders?

I would like to know how to bounce an e-mail back to the sender. Outlook
2003 can do that. I have Outlook 2007 and cannot find how to do it. I do
not want it go to in my junk mail. I want the sender to know I blocked their
e-mail from coming to my computer.




One of my users is using Outlook 2007 SP2 connected to Exchange 2003 SP2. He
is running Outlook in Cached Exchange Mode. When he adds an email address to
the blocked senders list, incoming emails that match addresses in the list do
not go to the Junk E-mail folder. Emails are just delivered to the Inbox.
As far as I know, only one user is experiencing this issue.

The user does not have any special rules configured and the issue can be
reproduced on multiple machines.

I have added about 100 email addresses in my Junk Email Blocked Sender List;
but Outlook does not AUTOMATICALLY move incoming IMAP messages from any
senders in the Blocked Sender List to Junk Email folder. I need to open these
messages in Inbox first; only when I close it then it will move to Junk
Email. Any advise on what went wrong greatly appreciated. Rgds




Why does my Outlook 2007 block .gif & .jpg attachments




Hi, I know how to block a sender. However, I would like to know what happens
if someone on the blocked sender list tries to send an email to someone who
has blocked them. I can't find anything on the help screens about this.
Does the sender of an email get a message saying they are blocked, or does
their email simply disappear? Could someone please tell me what actually
happens? Many thanks.

What is up with the blocked senders list. I have added a number of entries
in each of the forms they specify and I continue to get spam from these same
addresses almost daily.

Has anyone else encountered this and if so how did you resolve it?

All of my Outlook 2007 mail has started going to my junk mail folder.
Sometimes there are 2 of the same e-mail. I receive no mail in my Inbox. I
have the senders in my safe senders list, and have no rules set. The
senders are not in my Blocked Senders list. The Junk e-mail protection is set
to Low. This problem just started happening, and these are addresses I've
been using for years. Any suggestions on why this started happening, and
what I can do to resolve the problem?

I receive newsletters and other legitimate emails formatted in HTML and
containing embedded pictures. Outlook blocks the pictures as expected. When
I choose to add a sender or domain to the safe-senders list, the pictures
will appear and I can verify that it's been added to the list.

Exit Outlook and restart.. All newly saved "safe-senders" are now gone
except a few that remain, the same 3 or 4 always remain and any new ones are
not saved.

I've tried saving the list and then importing it, it works but again when
exiting and restarting the list is back to the same 3-4 entries and any new
ones are not saved.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Stand-alone system ( local user account not attached to a domain)
Office 2007 Ultimate
ESET NOD32 AntiVirus 4 installed

I'm using GMail and have the Junk Email set to "No Automatic Filtering" as
recommended by Google. According to what I read the safe and blocked senders
list should still work.

Any ideas how to get this to work?

Thanks
Bryan

My version of Outlook 2007 has started to block ULR links in emails with a message that says 'This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator'. I know that somewhere a switch has been changed to stop this happening, but I would like to allow this functionality.

Can anyone please suggest where this is lilely to be? I am running Win 7 and IE9, if that is useful.




In outlook (using XP), I am having difficulty blocking senders, without
having to go into the list of blocked senders, then typing/copying the
senders address then clicking "add".

Some time back I put a "block sender" shortcut on my toolbar. When I have a
hilited sender in my Inbox, I click the shortcut and it bounces the mail from
the Inbox to the Junk Mail box. The problem is, the senders keep getting
through to my Inbox.

I have also tried the path: actionsjunk e-mailAdd to blocked senders list.
In both instances, I then go to my blocked senders list and the senders don't
appear. They will not appear on the list unless I manually add them at that
time (type in the sender and click 'add").

Judging from the number of blocked senders on the list (only 20-30) I would
say that this feature has not functioned since I got the laptop, about 20
months ago.

Any suggestions? Eric




I recently upgraded to Outlook 2007 and have been getting email into my junk
folder which should not be considered junk. When I open up the message it
shows in a header which says "Links and other functionality have been
disabled in this message. To restore functionality, move this message to
the inbox. Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe
attachments: (lists some .jpg files)."

I then move the message to my inbox, but the same message appears in the
same header when I open up the same message now in my inbox.

Does anyone have an explanation of why I am not getting full access to the
message and the attachments?

I am attempting to block email from an individual's personal email account
and their work account by adding them to the blocked sender's list in
Outlook. I've added the addresses by tping them in and also by adding them
"from" an email received from each account. Nothing's working - they get
through anyway...




I will try and be very detailed here to help as much as possible.

I am using Outlook 2007 (Office Pro w/sp1) under WIndows Vista Business SP1.
Mine is a coprporate install running on Exchange 2003 Servers.

The issue has to do with setting up a rule that sets a condition for the
sender being in a specified Address book. Here is the rules detail from the
Rules Wizard:

Apply this rule after thew message arrives
sender is in Global Address List Address Book
and on this machine only
Move it to the Test Folder

Its a very simple rule, but it does not work, AKA it will not filter emails
that are created and sent by our corporate users. I have tried all the
subcategories under GLobal Address List (All Address Lists, All Users, etc).
This rule abosolutely will not work.

Using the people or Distribution list is not an option, as this will exceed
the 32k rule for Outlook rules. ANd I don't mind if you can't do it, but
PLEASE don't allow me to choose it as an option!

Any help would be appreciated on this issue.




I am trying to config a GPO to load a custom Safe Senders text file into each
users Outlook Safe Senders list. When this policy is pushed out, it is
present in the Registry but the list cant be seen in Outlook 2007 nor does it
work in the "background". Why would this GPO setting be present if I cant
use it?

Can anyone let me know if you have run across a similar issue and if you
have any workarounds?




I installed outlook 2007 on my computer last week. I use VISTA and previously
had Outlook 2003 installed. All of my messages, including messages from the
safe sender list, are going to the junk mail folder. Also, I am getting
multiple messages from the same senders. Anyone know how to fix these
problems?
