Defining your safe senders list.
The Import and Export tools are useful if you want to transfer a safe list between Outlook and
another email program, or pass your safe list to a friend or colleague. The import/export format is
a plain text file with one address per line.
Defining Safe Recipients
The safe recipients list, located on another tab in the Junk E-mail Options dialog box, is similar to
the safe senders list but it marks messages as okay based on their recipients rather than their sender.
This is useful when you are on a distribution list or in another situation where you receive emails
that are sent to a list of recipients including you. When an email address is on the safe recipients
list, any message sent to you and to that address will never be treated as spam, regardless of the
message sender and content. The Safe Recipients tab works exactly the same as the Safe Senders
tab, described in the previous section.
Defining Blocked Senders
A blocked sender is an email address or domain whose messages are always treated as spam. The
Blocked Senders tab in the Junk E-mail Options dialog box works exactly like the Safe Senders tab
as described earlier.
