    I use Windows Live Mail as a newsgroup reader only, but having accidentally
    blocked a friend who is a poster on a newsgroup, I can't find the blocked
    list anywhere, even though it contains many 'Trolls' addresses in it

    Can someone please direct me as to where I will find that list so I can
    un-block my friend please.....

    Hi, Bigbazza.

    In WLM 2011, they hid it - but it's still here.

    Start with that no-name icon in the upper left corner. (It actually has a
    name, but you won't see it unless you hover your mouse over it; then a
    tool-tip will pop up with the very UNinformative label "Windows Live Mail".)

    Click that icon, then click on Options, then Safety options... Then you can
    choose from 7 tabs, including Blocked Senders.

    Do all that again, but right-click on Safety options and Add it to your
    Quick Access Toolbar. Then a safety shield icon will appear on your QAT and
    you can reach that 7-tabs window with a single click from now on. While
    you're at it, go through this again and right-click on Options | Mail and
    add this icon to your QAT; then you have a one-click access to the Tools |
    Options window that is so familiar to all OE veterans.

    Sure makes WLM 2011 easier to live with! ;<)

    Thank you so much for that information.......I found it and have removed my
    friend from the list..... I am not fond of Windows Live Mail for a news
    reader, I much preferred the 'Outlook Express' that I had always
    used....But, having Windows 7, it is not available on it anymore...:-(

    To add to RC's fine instructions.
    Alternatively one can use key stroke commands to access the 'Safety
    Options'

    Alt F
    then press in sequence
    O S
