Hi, Is there anything that can be done to stop junk mail? Some of them are persistant. The sender's email address is not in the address book, but still it comes to the inbox. For example, 'email@example.com' is an ad for medicines. I do not know how to stop this email from comming to my inbox.Spam filter is on. Windows XP professional SP2, Outlook, Nod 32,is my setup. Can anybody help?Thanks.I do not want to change my email address.

There are many email filtering programs available, my choice which I have been using for years is Mailwasher from Firetrust.com it is not free but is a pay once program and entitles you to all new updates.
Gee-7, to stop unwanted email, in OE, select the unwanted missive, click on Message. In the resulting drop-down menu click on Block Sender. If you do this systematically with every piece of unwanted email that hits your inbox, it will bare fruit. Judy
If you do what judy suggests with each email it will also take forever to get your emails because OE will have to go through the entire list with each email. I used to do that and it became a real hassle. I just use MailWasher (I have a free version).
Ray is correct in what he says as I did have the same issues when I used to use that process. In my opinion Mailwasher is worth the money you pay for it as it is a once only payment and entitles you to any further updates to the program.
Firetrust (Mailwasher) gives our Senior Group here a 20% commission on Sales to our Members, I don't know if Ray would be interesting in contacting them and pursuing a similar offer.
I use the built in junk mail feature of Netscape 7.2. It seems to do the job quite well and it stores the junk mail in a folder for a week so I can examine them and reverse any that are not junk. I have 3 email accounts and I only have a heavy junk mail problem with a Comcast account. The other 2 accounts rarely get any junk mail. Regards, Fred
