How to approve a sender in MS Office.
- In previous versions of Outlook it was up to the end user to create his/her own spam filter. In fact, the Outlook® 2000 and Outlook Express® tutorials show you step by step how to do this. However, Outlook® 2003 has a predefined spam filter.
- The following procedures were tested with Outlook 2003 which is bundled with the Office 2003 software suite. You can determine your version by opening Outlook and clicking on Help > About Microsoft Office Outlook.
- Open Outlook by double-clicking on the Outlook icon located on your desktop.
- Click on Tools > Options.
- Click on the Junk E-mail... button.
- The first "Options" tab is where you control the junk filter.
- No Automatic Filtering essentially turns off the junk e-mail filter.
- Low will only filter junk e-mail if it scores a high spam confidence level (SCL) rating.
- High will filter junk e-mail if it scores a medium SCL rating. The lower the rating, the less likely the e-mail is spam.
- Safe Lists Only turns off the junk e-mail filter and will only allow e-mail to be delivered to your inbox if the sender or the recipient is listed in the "Safe Senders" and "Safe Recipients" lists. You might use this option if you have the attitude "If I don't know the sender of the e-mail, it's spam". This may be ok for personal e-mail but this is definitely not an option for businesses attracting new customers.
The last option allows you to "Permanently delete" junk e-mail. If, after you have been using the junk e-mail filter for some time, you notice that the filter has never filtered one of your legitimate e-mails into the Junk E-mail folder, then you might consider simply deleting the filtered spam e-mail rather than keeping a copy for your review.
- Continuing from the previous step, clicking on the "Safe Senders" tab yields a control panel which allows you to add and remove contacts who are your friends and colleagues. This list overrides the Junk E-mail filter and protects any messages sent by your friends or colleagues from being filtered into the Junk E-mail folder.
- To add a contact, simply click the "Add..." button, enter firstname.lastname@example.org , and click "OK". You may also include entire domains by adding " calamshriners.com" which will treat all e-mail arriving from example.com as a safe sender.
- The "Remove" and "Edit..." buttons allow you to remove a contact or edit the email of an existing contact.
- The "Import from File..." and "Export to File..." are used to backup and restore your Safe Senders list.
- Placing a checkmark next to the "Also trust e-mail from my Contacts" essentially adds all the e-mails of your contacts to this list. You won't visibly see the addition of your contacts e-mails to the list but they will not be filtered against. It's always a good idea to keep this checked. You wouldn't have a spammer in your list of contacts would you?
