Here's the problem.

I've been getting a lot of spam emails lately. I know they're not directly aimed at me because everyone that is contacted has the same email server that I do and the names are alphabetical.

I have over the past month added about 100 new spam addresses to my Blocked senders list. I have tried to set up my Outlook Express to not even except them from the server but unfortunately I have been unsuccessful. The only thing that's been accomplished is when the emails are blocked they go straight to my delete file. According to my setup options I should be able to not even upload them from the server, which is Road Runner.

I have tried to set it up and then send myself a test message from my Yahoo account. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong, as far as setting up Outlook Express? I use a different email program at work and it does just fine with filtering. Unfortunately, I've only ever seen it work on a network system. And I actually can't get a copy of it anyway.

Any help would be appreciated.
