Can anybody tell me how to get rid of unwanted messages in Outlook Express.
I use block message to try to get rid of them but they come back the next day. Outlook says that the block message will not load subsequent messages from the same source. Ha Ha.

In OutLook Express you want to block someone eg: spammers, highlight the message, Go to the main toolbar, Message>Create Rule from Message>the first window is ticked by default, in the second window scroll down to Delete from Server>In the third window where the persons address is seen, if the address is something stupid like freecomputer@grouplotto.com, single click the address and this will bring up a small box, type in the address from the @ onwards, eg @grouplotto.com and add, click ok, click apply and ok to finish the rule. What happens now is when you open OE to get your mail from the ISP, any messages with either the full address or the part from the @ will be deleted by the ISP.
Hope that is what you wanted.
