    Hi, this is not a problem per se, but I just noticed something is creating some names in my blocked senders list which I have not put in there! None of the " address creations" so far are important but just wonder how it's happening. I'm using O.E 6, Xp,I.E.7. Could it be my ISP or my machine?

    Hi Benny Bumble

    Do you have any SPAM programs you are running with Outlook Express?

    Hi EA
    Not that I'm aware of. I don't know what my ISP might have at their end. But for me the only thing I personally have is Norton System Works with their Anti-virus portion. I have Ad-aware installed but don't run it because it was deleting my address bar history list.

    Anything your ISP filters out as SPAM will not affect Outlook Express, as those messages will be blocked on the Server end,
    A program on your computer is adding to the Blocked Senders list.

    Are you using Norton System Works standard 2006?

    Hi EA,
    Yes I'm using NSW 2006 std version. I see where Verizon has a spam filter which intercepts spam & puts it into a separate folder for 7 days.
