    How to Reduce Spam in Outlook

    There are some guidelines given below which is help to reduce Spam. These are following….
    1. Take advantage of the Junk E-mail Filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Office Outlook 2007 helps to mitigate the problem of spam by providing the Junk E-mail Filter, which automatically evaluates incoming messages and sends those identified as spam to the Junk E-mail folder.
    2. Block pictures in HTML messages that spammers use as Web beacons Office Outlook 2007 has an additional anti-spam feature. By default, this feature blocks automatic picture downloads and other external content in messages if the content is linked to a server. If you open a message that has external content when this feature is turned off, the external content downloads automatically, inadvertently verifying to the server that your e-mail address is a valid one. Your e-mail address can then be sold to a spammer. You can unblock external content for messages that come from sources that you trust. For details, see Block or unblock automatic picture downloads in e-mail messages.
    3. Turn off read and delivery receipts and automatic processing of meeting requests Spammers sometimes resort to sending meeting requests and messages that include requests for read and delivery receipts. Responding to such meeting requests and read receipts might help spammers to verify your e-mail address. You can turn off this functionality. However, read and delivery receipts and automatic processing of meeting requests are useful features that you should not be afraid to use within a secure corporate network.
    Note Delivery receipts can be turned off only by your e-mail server administrator.
    Turn off read receipts
    1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
    2. Click E-mail Options.
    3. Click Tracking Options.
    4. Under Use this option to decide how to respond to requests for read receipts. Only applies to Internet Mail accounts, click Never send a response.

    Great suggestions.

    I like t recommend that if you see the spam message several times, that you will probably continue to get it, just create a rule to filter out all e-mails with "spam message here" in the subject directly to the junk folder. If you get used to seeing that SPAM message too often then your brain starts to smell like spam (the canned kind).

    The most effective way of getting rid of spam is at source - use Gmail or Google Apps as your provider. Spam will be sorted BEFORE it arrives in your inbox.

    Use several block words that your friends would not send you, and occasionally scan the folder for messages from friends.

    I would just use thunderbird instead of outlook to be honest.

    I would suggest to Block pictures in HTML messages which is widely used by spammers to spam through Outlook.

    The problem is getting valid email automatically redirected to your junk email folder. Thunderbird can be handy.
