    Using OE I know I've seen a setting to Ignore a particular sender or otherwise not receive any e-mail from that source.
    I know (the setting) is somewhere and I can find it...........

    My question is once I use the 'Block Sender' option, does the source receive notification of my action or does the action remain 'transparent' to the source?

    All that happens is the emails from the blocked sender get downloaded directly into your deleted items folder. They don't appear in your inbox.

    Thanx Kento, that's what I needed to know, I can deal with them from there...............although I'd rather not even see them at all.

    Yeah it would be nice if they didn't appear. If you know that the address of the sender is legit (unlike some spam mail addresses) then you may want to try Bounce Spam Mail. It looks interesting. Maybe it'll fool the sender into thinking you changed addresses so they won't bother to send any more emails.

    Thanx Kento, I bookmarked the site you gave me, for the time being I'll just try to 'block sender'.
    Once again, Thank You.
