Spam Blocker Outlook Express


One question I receive a number of emails about is a Spam Blocker for Outlook Express. Although some of the other free email clients have a Spam Blocker built in, Outlook Express doesn't.

There are also loads of free spam blocker software clients you can download, unfortunately some of them contain Spyware and Adware which causes more problems.

One easy option would be to use the Outlook Express Filters, however, they only allow you to filter email to your email address to another folder, keeping the Spam in your Inbox.

So, what do you do to filter Spam in Outlook Express?


Below are a few suggestions:

 - Check with your email provider. Some of the bigger ones offer free software which they will have tested. They may also have an option on the server that they can switch on for your email

- Download and install Thunderbird as your email client, it has these features plus more included.

- Have 2 email addresses, one for your friends, family etc and a free one for everything else.

- Download or purchase a Spam Filter
