Outlook 2007 Blocked Senders List not working


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




I have a specific email address, which is the same everytime, that I want to
block; Subject changes so filtering on that is not an option. I have added it
to the Blocked Senders list but it continues to come into my Inbox as opposed
to going to the Junk Email folder as advertised. I have seen posts on this
site which recommend Cached Exchange Mode but I'm not connected to an
Exchange server. How can I get this simple concept to work?




OUTLOOK 203 right-click BLOCKED SENDER DOES NOT WORK
For weeks I have been right-clicking and blocking emails - but it does not work - the same emails keep coming - and it's driving me daft.
Help?

This question has been asked of Outlook 2003 a number of times and no one
seems to know the answer beyond "check this, check that." Well, I'm going to
ask it again and would appreciate a straight answer from a knowledgable
person:

WHY does Outlook send email from contacts who are 1) in my Contacts folder,
and 2) have been REPEATEDLY added to my Safe Senders List to my Junk Mail??
What is the hidden 'evil' that Outlook is deciding for me that it needs to
shield me from?

This is getting ridiculous and is causing me much embarrassment among my
personal and professional contacts who are getting their urgent messages
unanswered by me.

Judging from the number of inquiries on this board, there will be a whole
lot of appreciation (and a gold star!) to the first MVP who can intelligently
provide the solution (since - as usual - the MS KB is devoid of value).

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?

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

Help! When I tell Outlook 2010 to block a sender, it deletes the email and temporarily adds the address to the blocked senders list.  However,  it does not retain this information.  It allows new emails from the previously blocked sender and when I check the block sender list, it is no longer on the list. It seems to want to keep the list to no more than 17 addresses.  I am using Windows7, busuiness version.




I send an email address to the blocked senders list or select ACTIONS and enter and Apply then OK but will not block most on susequent email downloads???




When I right-click on an inbox message, in the shorcut menu Outlook 2003 only
gives me the option to add the "sender" to bloked senders list. It only gives
the domain option for the safe senders list. How can I also add the "domain"
to the blocked senders list not only the particular sender? Thanks.




5 days ago, I got a box to upgrade Quicktime & also get iTunes, which I did.
Then I notcied that I was suddenly getting over 80 emails each day & most I
have successfully had blocked for a very long time. I checked my Blocked
Senders List & it was empty.
I have started all over again, but have noticed that everyday I start OE6,
the Blocked Senders List is empty again. The blocked emails I do each day are
now not being saved.
Does anyone know what has changed & what I can do to rectify this situation,
pleease?




I'm using Outlook 2010 along with an Exchange 2003 server Under Win 7.  Ever since I upgraded to 2010, senders in my 'blocked sender' list don't get blocked.  I've found from some googling of the problem that this is a common bug.  What's the fix?




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.

Where is the OE blocked senders list stored? I need to sort it and print it
and share it with my friends. How can I make a copy of it and do the above?




How to I get my current Blocked Senders List onto a new computer?
Thanks for any assistance.

Hi:

In Outlook 2007 new install, if I have "Don't download pictures
automatically..." checked in Options/Trust Center/Automatic Download, I
still get pictures downloaded. I transferred the settings from an old
computer with Outlook 2007 using Outback 6 and it worked fine on the old
computer. Checking and unchecking and checking again does nothing. I have
some sites in the safe senders list but certainly not all the spam ones that
are being downloaded. Any suggestions how to get this to work. Thanks so
much, Kent
