Creating a Safe Senders list

    A Safe Senders list lets you define all the e-mail addresses you want to accept messages from, and Outlook routes all e-mail from other e-mail addresses directly to your Junk E-mail folder.

    The advantage of a Safe Senders list is that it guarantees you will never receive spam. On the down side, though, it also guarantees that if someone tries to contact you whose e-mail address doesn't appear on your Safe Senders list, you will never get that valid message, either.

    To create a Safe Senders list, follow Steps 1 through 4 in the preceding section, "Setting up Outlook's junk email filter" to display the Junk E-mail Options dialog box. Then follow these steps:

    1. In the Junk E-mail Options dialog box (refer to Figure 19-1), click the Options tab.

    2. Select the Safe Lists Only radio button.

    3. Click the Safe Senders tab.

    The Safe Sender's tab of the Junk E-mail Options dialog box appears.

    4. (Optional) Select (or clear) the Also Trust E-mail from My Contacts check box.

    Selecting this check box tells Outlook that if you store someone's e-mail address in your Contacts list, you will also accept e-mail from that person, too.

    5. (Optional) Select (or clear) the Automatically Add People I E-mail to the Safe Senders List check box.

    This tells Outlook that if you send e-mail to someone, you'll accept his or her messages in return.

    6. (Optional) Click the Add button.

    The Add Address or Domain dialog box appears.

    7. Type a complete e-mail address. (Or type a domain name — for example, if you trust everyone from Microsoft. com to send you valid e-mail, type @microsoft. com in this dialog box.)

    8. Click OK.

    9. Repeat Steps 6-8 for each additional e-mail address or domain you want to add.

    10. Click OK until all the dialog boxes disappear.
