if memory serves;assuming the Outlook express has automatically stored the senders address in the address book;open the address book and highlight the unwanted one and press delete; you I suggest definitly need to utilise the mailwasher program as mentioned above;using it you can preview any mail on server, see what is wanted and what is spam and delete and blacklistunwanted mail from server;dont bounce anything; I use it and now would not be without it;you can program mailwasher to recognise spam and rogue mail addresses and when you press the "process mail" tag in mailwasher, the mails you have indicated for deletion are automatically deleted from server,so kept away from your pc; you cannot stop anyone sending you any mail, but you can stop any unwanted mail reaching your pc:)
Very easy with Outlook Express..... 1. Single click on message (don't dble click)... 2. Select Message in toolbar.... 3. Select 'Create Rule From Message... 4. In the 'Select Actions for your rule' just choose 'Do not download from server'
The rest is history.......
To delete the address jusy select it in your address book...right click.choose 'delete'.
