|Importing MAIL RULES & BLOCKED SENDERS for Email
You will have to do two things before installing that patch. I know of no easy shortcuts. First of course download the attachment into a folder, and unzip the two files inside.
One, there is a long 32 digit alpha numeric code specific to each User
setup of Outlook Express. It's called the Identity.
To import those patches into YOUR account on YOUR computer, you would
have to make a simple modification to replace MY Identity code number with
YOUR code number. You would
just be using the same Find and Replace dialog you would use in a Word
Document to say replace "horse rider" with "equestrian" or "cold" with
Edit the files in Notepad (Right-Click, Edit).Now Save the file.
This next pointer only applies if you do a Save As from within the Wordpad application: make sure the new file is saved as Plain Text not Rich Text Format. Also make sure you put the entire new file name including the .REG at the end in quotes otherwise Wordpad will automatically give it a .TXT extension and it will only act like a Text file not a registry file.
Lastly, Locate file you just modified and Right-Click it and select
That's because you haven't created a folder called Spam so that Rule can't work.
Click on the Spam rule to Edit is in the obvious way (it shows you). Create a New Folder called SPAM using the underlined "send to Specified Folder" in that dialog. Select the [New Folder] button.
Also important, my Rule is set to block messages not having
Geekman1@Geekman1.COM on the TO or CC line. Much Spam is sent to
a List, and the names are hidden on the BCC line, so that's one good criteria
for blocking Spam, but I put it in the Spam folder instead of immediately
deleting it, just in case it's someone I know or something I want to read.
I put "exceptions" in there for people I know who always send me group emails with my name in the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) section, like a few mailing lists I'm on and certain friends who send out group jokes and such. You would want to modify that to reflect people YOU know and the lists YOU are on, if any, who send you group mail.
You can delete some of the names I have listed in there as exceptions,
and add your own list of names.
