– Change the level of junk e-mail protection

1.On the Tools menu, click Options.
2.On the Preferences tab, under E-mail, click Junk E-mail.
3.Select the protection level that you want.

  • No protection Although this turns off the automatic Junk E-mail Filter, Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 will continue to evaluate messages by using domain names and e-mail addresses on your Blocked Senders List, and messages will continue to be moved to your Junk E-mail folder.
  • Low If you don’t receive many junk e-mail messages and want to see all but the most obvious junk messages, you should select this option.
  • High If you receive a large volume of junk e-mail messages, you should select this option. However, you should periodically review the messages moved to your Junk E-mail folder, because some wanted messages may be moved there as well.
  • Safe Lists Only Any e-mail messages sent from someone not on your Safe Senders List or sent to a mailing list not on the Safe Recipients List will be treated as junk e-mail messages.

Note Changing the protection level is not available if you are using an Exchange Server e-mail account and working online.

– Delete messages instead of moving them to the Junk E-mail folder

1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
