I have been adding the senders of any spam received to the blocked senders list in Outlook Express. The list had grown to over 200. All of a sudden they were no longer there, so I assumed that I had mistakenly clicked to delete them. However I now find that this cannot be the reason as the names I add only stay on the list for the day I do it. Is there an answer to why things have changed and how can I revert to the former position?
this may not be the answer you seek but why not use/try mailwasher instead? click here and it is free it is very easily programable and you can delete from server any mails you do not want; NOTHING though will stop the spam from being sent to you
you do know NOT to bounce mails nor to click on the ' unsubscribe' tab ?
I had thought that might be the case but now the additions I make only stay on the list for that day. When I open up the following day the list is empty, so the number overall as suggested cannot be the reason. In any case I would expect that some kind of warning would have come up if the list had been approaching a limit.
Since I started this off I have changed my computer and ISP and now use Googlemail. Since I started about 7 months ago I have had no problem with spam (touch wood), which is a relief. Googlemail has identified about four messages as spam which were not, but better safe than sorry.
