Outlook Junk E-mail Options

By thought ·
I am searching for a solution to what I consider to be a large problem with MS Outlook and now come to you as I have found no answer/help from MS.

I continually receive spam from ?Fourinkjets?@(multiple domains); there does not seem to be an option within Outlook?s Junk E-mail Options to block utilizing the ?From? category (or by keyword); this means that I have to continually enter the offending domain attached to ?Fourinkjets? instead of once entering (if this were an option) ?Fourinkjets?.

Do you have a solution, please?

Thank you and best regards.

What version of Outlook are you using?

You should be able to set up your Junk Senders rule to pull any email with the word 'fourinkjets' in the address.

In Outlook, got to the Tools menu and select Rules Wizard.
Select your Junk Senders rule and click the Modify button.
Click the Next button.
At the window that says; "Which condition(s) do you want to check", scroll down the list and find "with specific words in the sender's address" and put a check in front of that selection.
Now, in the lower section of that same window, left click on the words 'specific words', type in 'fourinkjets' without the quotes and click the Add button and then the OK button.
Now click the Finish button (or the Next button if you want to make additional changes or exceptions to the rule).

Alternatives would be to contact your ISP and/or network admin. to have them set up a blocking rule on their end, or use a third-party spam blocker or bouncer.

I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Outlook 2003 (Office Pro 2003), thank you.

Your enlightening reply did the trick.

I have for years failed to scroll down to the other option(s) available thinking that "Rules" were limited to subject or domain.
I have utilized my ISP's online tools in the past but it sometimes created a problem; I would rather take care of everything through Outlook.

Again, thank you for your kind and timely reply; I hope to return the favor some day.

Best regards.

While we're on the subject of Spam...
Here is one of my favorite tools:
It's totally free and has an easy to use interface where you can drag & drop emails from Outlook to send a fake 'Undeliverable' message to spammers so they'll take your address off their spam lists. Enjoy!
