How to Reduce Spam You Receive via Windows Live Mail
You can reduce the flow of spam you receive to a trickle by using the mail-blocking feature within Windows Live Mail. Is there anyone on the planet who actually opens a message promising instant hair regrowth? Or a once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity? Or some sort of illicit physical offer that you neither want nor need? Why does junk mail exist? Aren’t these spam-slingers just wasting their time?
When you receive a junk mail message from someone, right-click it in the Message list and then choose Junk E-Mail→Add Sender to Blocked Sender List from the pop-up menu that appears. Live Mail displays a confirmation dialog box to let you know that the offending sender has been added to your Blocked Sender list and that the message has been moved to your Junk E-Mail folder.
Use this method to block all messages from a specific e-mail address. Any mail you receive from that source is then dumped directly into your Deleted Items folder. (You can still look at it there, of course, just to verify that the proper trash was picked up.)
However, nefarious junk mail villains can still get around a blocked-sender list by changing their sending addresses: For example, firstname.lastname@example.org suddenly becomes email@example.com or something similar.
Does this mean that you have to continue to suffer? Not in the least, good Internet citizen! You can also block an entire domain name, which is the part of an e-mail address that follows the @ sign, like spamtwit.com in
