    Mr Hood...

    I used to be able to block entire domains in Outlook, although I am a WinLiveMail user now...but it's pretty much the same thing.

    If you haven't already, you could try:

    •Select Tools | Message Rules | Blocked Senders List... from the menu in Outlook Express.
    •Click Add....
    •Type the domain you want to block.
    •Finally, click OK.

    If it really doesn't work your ISP should be able to help.

    Where you an avid user of Outlook? Which functionalities do you miss?

    It seems rather sparse. I didn't bother to do a full evaluation. I like to consolidate blogs via RSS feeds and auto-route frequent reports to their respective folders. Additionally, I consolidate multiple email accounts. But, I am totally disconnected when away from my desk.

    Can WinLiveMail do that? Thanks.

    If you are speaking to me Mr. Sandman,

    Live Mail offered me just about all the functionality that Outlook did, even though I was hesitant to migrate at first. I cannot comment on RSS feeds, as I don't use that, but I see it is available. Yes, I can consolidate multiple E Mail accounts. Overall, I am happy with it.

    Move your email over to Gmail and they will block out all that crap for you.

    The web based Outlook is good with Spam.

    Outlook knows that if you delete an email without opening it, you are probably deleting spam. It conveniently asks for your permission to block/delete all future transmissions. It works well for sites that don't have a real unsubscribe feature.

    I am surprised your not an Outlook fan, B. It looks thematically similar to ET.

    Well can you tell MSFT to stop thematically copying me? :D

    LoL. I was gonna ask you about our platform, but was worried the open source hippies would attack you. I guess I have a big mouth.
