BLOCK SENDERS FROM OUTLOOK

BLOCK SENDERS FROM OUTLOOK

BLOCK SENDERS FROM OUTLOOK

(OP)
I need to know if you can block a specific sender from sending emails to me.  I currently use Microsoft Outlook.  When you send an email to an address that is wrong it comes back as a mailerdemon.  I am looking for something like this to happen if this certain person tries to send an email.

RE: BLOCK SENDERS FROM OUTLOOK

I don't think you can set your Outlook personal mailbox to refuse e-mail from specific individuals although that may be possible in a global fashion in Exchange setup.

With Outlook, you could use the junk mail option (Under Actions).  You would first need to set it up under Tools/Organize.

While this won't refuse the delivery it will, I believe, put it in a separate folder.  The contents could then be deleted.

Hope this helps.

RE: BLOCK SENDERS FROM OUTLOOK

There's an easier way to do this.  Use the Rules Wizard.
Go to Tools>Rules Wizard.  Select New and then go through all the selections, picking what you want it to do.  You can even have the rule permanently delete the message.  I used them when we got the ILOVEYOU virus.
