Spam mail

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by George Fellner, May 25, 2010.

  1. A number of incoming messages go into spam even though the senders address
    and domain are in my address book. How can I correct that?

    Being in the address book means nothing. Is this the Junk folder? Check
    your message rules and blocked senders. If you have a spam program and a
    spam folder, then you will have to hunt down the reason.

  3. The Blocked Senders list overrides everything else, so be sure you haven't
    inadvertently added them to the Blocked Senders list.

    Incidentally, Windows Mail by default doesn't have a 'spam' folder;
    it does have a 'Junk E-mail' folder. Accurate terminology is important
    because the presence of an actual 'Spam' folder would indicate
    integration with a third party anti-spam program, which requires
    a different resolution.

    You can set a filter for it.

  5. No, that won't work. The included Junk filter in Windows Mail takes precedence over custom filter rules.
