    I have attempted to block a sender in Windows Live mail (Windows 7) by going to Junk Mail and adding sender's domain to the list. This is not working. I am still receiving emails from this sender. I have 2 computers in my home and have my email set up to leave a copy of an email on the server so each computer user will be able to read an email before it is deleted. Does this have an influence on why I cannot add a sender to the blocked list? If so, is there a way around this to block a sender on just one of the computers?

    Yes, this is the procedure I used and cannot seem to block any sender. I am using Windows Live Mail 2011.

    Hey Catchup -sorry couldn't resist. I found a solution that worked for another poor soul with the same problem and this manuever fixed the problem.

    It's a bug in WLM 2011 that you have to do a "repair" to fix this problem. Use "Control Panel>>Programs and Features" to do a repair of "Windows Live Essentials".
