Hi,
I have xp, new computer, sony

and I'm wondering, without usping spam filters, etc., (cuz I know they're available and what they do)
and without creating "rules", because I understand those too!

is there a way, when I come across an e-mail I want deleted and added to my blocked senders list, to do it more quickly and efficiently than the 4 step process of selecting it, othe than clicking on "message", "block sender", "yes", "ok"?

thanks so much!

Unfortunately there is no easy way to do it right now within outlook express except through the menus. The next version, coming with IE7, may offer easier methods to do this.

ok, thanks anyway!! I thought there was something like a "macro" thing or something someone told me about once, that you can type a shorthand thing and it'll do something like this, but what do I know!!

thanks

You can doenload a program called 'spambayes'. It's a freeware spam-filter for MS Outbreak, excuse me, MS Outlook and Outlook Express. It allows you to 'delete a mesage as spam' with one click.
