I hope I have posted it in correct forum ... sorry if I am wrong!!


I have several email accounts from my ISP (Bell Canada) in addition to Hotmail, Gmail etc. I use MS Outlook 2010 to send and receive emails from all these accounts.

Bell Canada's webmail is on Hotmail platform. That is if I use webmail, it looks very similar to Hotmail, with the exception of “Bell” logo instead of Hotmail.

I have been noticing that “junk” mail is not downloaded to my outlook. It stays on the server and I can only see it if I log in to each and every account one by one.

Earler, Hotmail filters had 3-4 setting. The lowest was almost no filter. Hence, all the mails went thru. Now Hotmail has changed filters as follows

Standard - Most junk email is sent to the junk email folder. <--- this is on server, NOT downlaoded to outlook
Exclusive - Everything is sent to the junk email folder except messages from your contacts and safe senders, Bell Mail service announcements, and alerts that you signed up for.


There are various time consuming and frustrating alternatives

1- Go one by one each account using webmail and take action
2- Add senders to list of safe senders. Not very practical as some of my senders change their email addresses or I get email from someone I never received before
3- Change ISP and find someone who does not use Hotmail platform

There must be a better way. Hope someone can suggest.

Thank you very much

I use Toshiba Tecra laptop, Windows 7, Microsoft Office Prof 2010
