Setting Up a Safe Senders List
Use the Junk E-mail Options box to manage you
settings for dealing with spam and other email
you don’t want. The tabs (circled) let you manage
lists that tell Outlook to always let certain
messages through and to always block others.
• Safe Senders. When you tell Outlook to never block email from a certain address,
that address ends up in this list. Come here to add, edit, or remove addresses.
• Safe Recipients. This list is for mailing lists you’re on. Often, a mailing list
message is addressed to a group, not individual recipients. When this kind of message
arrives, Outlook may look at the To address and assume it’s spam. To make sure
mailing list messages you want get through, add them to this list. (You can do
that on this tab or by using the Junk button’s Never Block This Group or Mailing
• Blocked Senders. When you block a sender, the sender’s address goes on this
tab’s list. If you need to manage the list (adding, editing, or deleting addresses),
use this tab.
• International. Spam has gone global, and it may arrive from a country where
you know no one or written in a language you don’t speak. This tab maintains
two lists of blocked items:
— Blocked Top-Level Domain List. Email addresses in different countries
may use a country-specific domain, ending with abbreviations such as .nl
(Netherlands), .ru (Russia), .cn (China), .ca (Canada), and so on. If you
never want to receive email from an email address that ends in one of these
top-level domains, click this button and turn on the checkbox of any
toplevel domain you want to block.
