how to automatically delete junk email?

I set up my outlook 2003 to Permanently delete suspected junk e-mail instead
of moving it to the Junk E-mail folder, but I'm still getting emails from
block senders in my junk email forlder. What can I do to stop this?

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to automatically delete email every
Sunday? I am using XP with SP3, and create a weekly junk mail folder under
Outlook Express, and would like to set any option to empty this folder on
every Sunday. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do it?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Spam emails are moved to "Junk E-mail" folder by one antispam software.
Now i want to automatically delete email that is older than 7 days in "Junk E-mail" folder.

I create one receipt policy for emailbox manage, but i can not find "Junk E-mail" folder, must manually add "Junk E-mail" folder, i don't know the folder name of "Junk E-mail", because the name is different from different language.

how to automatically gather the email addresses from my past mail

How to automatically forward all emails to other email accounts in Outlook?

how to automatically gather the email addresses from my past mail

I want to auto forward emails from a particular company, regardless of the
sender. How would I structure the rule? For example, if I want to foward all
emails from FedEX, can I put just FedEx in the rule? Or FedEx.com? Or
*@FedEx.com where the * (or some other character) is like a wildcard?

We have 3 accounts in our outlook at work. We would like to know how to
automatically forward all emails from one of the account to another?

The purpose: So my boss does not miss any appointments/request while I am
out of office.

Does anyone know how to automatically mark junk emails as read in Outlook 2007?

I don't like how the folder fills up and shows all the messages in there. I
notice that there's a utility/plug-in called Auto Read 2.0 that does this for
Outlook 97 through 2003, but they don't have a version for 2007. Seems like
it should be a simple rule filter operation, but I haven't been able to
figure it out.

Dear readers:
Is there a setting to Automatically delete junk e-mail after a predetermined

I am using Outlook 2003 on Windows XP SP2. My email account is IMAP
to UNIX. I get hundreds of SPAM message per day. The Junk E-mail
filter built into Outlook works reasonably well, but it doesn't seem
to run automatically.

If I manually click on the message header in my Inbox, then Outlook
moves a copy to the Junk e-mail folder and strikes a line through the
message in my inbox, so that purge will remove it. This happens
because I have selected "High" under Tools->Options->Junk E-mail-
>Options.

That's all well and good, but I can't click on hundreds of email per
day.

How can I get Outlook 2003 to AUTOMATICALLY examine each incoming
email and send it to the Junk E-mail folder???

>From what I have read, there WAS a rule option in Outlook 2002 called
"suspected to be Junk e-mail" to move junk email to a folder, but that
rule choice seems to be gone now in Outlook 2003.

I hope someone has an idea as I've been scanning the internet for
hours to no avail.

Thanks!

I have Outlook 2003 clients in a Exchange 2000 org. Even though I am working
online and shouldn't have any junk e-mail filtering going on (also have "no
automatic filtering" checked). Users - including me - are getting good
messages moved to their junk email folder. I have had messages form my own
domain and from other important addresses filtered to my Junk email folder.
The messages filtered are not on blocked senders list.
Why is any filtering at all going on? How do I turn off the filtering?

Thanks

My old computer automatically deleted messages from my ATT (bellsouth) server
when my Outlook send/received. Now with my new computer I have to delete
them manually... or I have a ton downloading to my cell phone when I check my
emails.....

How do I fix this? I think I have read I have to do it from Outlook... (I
have 2007) but I can't find it...

Can you help me????!!!!!

I think everyone is missing what the poster is asking.

I don't read his question as wanting to automatically delete any email that
Outlook deems as 'junk' email. I think he is asking that, in Outlook 2003 you
can select an email, and in the 'Actions' menu under 'Junk Email Options' you
can select 'add to junk senders list'. When doing this, I agree that it would
be nice if there was a way to also delete this email at the same time rather
than selecting email, navigating to 'add to junk senders list' and then
having to hit delete (or shift+delete and then enter to confirm).

Even better would be to have a hot key (like ctrl+J) that would add to junk
sender list and delete.

The fact that it is manually being added to the junk list kind of confirms
that the sender does not want the email. In fact, I remember creating or
having a button that would do exactly what I describe above.

I was woundering if any one knows how to set Outlook 2007 to automaticly move junk mail from my inbox to the junk mail folder. At this point It shows in my inbox until I go down my Inbox list and than it moves it to the junk e-mail folder and marks it for deletion. I checked all the settings and they are set corectly as far as I can see and have looked at the KB and it states that Outlook is supposed to autmaticly filter and move them to the junk mail folder and that they should not show up in my inbox at all. The only other option I have is to go onto the IMAP server itself and mark it as junk mail there, but I would rather not have to do that.  Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you and advance.  -André

Unfortunatley I don't think you can do that, but I totally agree. If I add
someone to a blocked list it makes sense that I don't want to read that email
and why should I then have to go manually delete it. You can make your own
rule, but that is a hassle. It's nice having the context menu option of just
adding the user to the blocked list. It would be nice to have the option in
the context menu of adding the users domain to the block list.

Assume I want to let Outlook 2003 automatically move incoming eMails from user "John Doe"
to a folder "stuff from JD". How can I setup such a filter and move rule in Outlook?

I am running Exchange Server 2000 and I have a few users that are asking if there is a way that I can set their deleted items to automatically be deleted from the "deleted items" folder every 90 days or so. Thank you for your help.

Can anyone tell me of a way to prevent users from Permanently Deleting their email ? I have heard of renaming the dumpster.dll file, but I don't understand what this will do. Is there ANY WAY TO DO THIS ?
