Hi all.

I'm using Outlook 2007 SP1 with Exchange in online mode.
Is there anything I need to do for it to honour the blocked senders list
as it seems to completely ignore it.

I have tried just domains names (@example.com) and full emails
(blah@example.com) but they will still all end up in my inbox as normal.
The protection level is currently set to:
"No automatic filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the
Junk Email folder"

None of the addresses (or wildcards) are in the safe senders list, and
it is set to trust my contacts.

I've mentioned it to a few other people and they say it doesn't work for
them either. Am I missing anything here?

Thanks

No, Online/live mode.

Ahh, I've now found that buried at the bottom of one of the help files.
Shame Outlook itself didn't tell me that and instead let me try and use
it for a week...

Thanks

it should toss up a warning dialog the first time. See the dialog value for
40 at http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/showdialog.htm - if you check your
registry, you should see it was disabled at some point.

Well.. Thanks for that. I don't ever remember seeing that warning, and
it does indeed prompt when i re-enable it :)
