From your e-mail Inbox or the list of messages in a newsgroup, select a message from a sender you want to block.

On the Message menu, click Block Sender.

This is for Outlook Express. Don't know about Outlook.

Thanks for your response Lonman but "Block Sender" option in my outlook express is unclickable. What do you think the problem might be. Jay

That's wierd. Maybe Outlook is interferring somehow. Try to find your solution through it and see if it works. Do you use both? If not try uninstalling Outlook and see if it helps. The only things I've loaded from Office XP Pro is Word, FrontPage and Photo Editor.

I found my first suggestion in the help file of Outlook Express. Maybe Outlook's Help will be helpful - it does happen on occasion, lol - but don't count on it.

I just found this in the help section of OE:

To manage the blocked senders list

1) On the Tools menu, point to Message Rules, and then click Block Senders List.
2) To remove a sender or domain from the list, select the name and click Remove.
3) To change a sender's name or domain on the list, select the name and click Modify. Make your changes in the dialog box and click OK.
4) To add a new sender or domain to the list, click Add. Enter the information in the dialog box and click OK.
5) Click OK in the Message Rules dialog box to apply rules that have been added or changed.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
