Hi beeze

What operating system is your mom using?

What ISP is she using?

Some ISP's have a Spam filter that can be activated using the ISP's web mail account where she can place your e-mail address to be placed in the Inbox if it is being picked up as Spam mail.

What do you hope to accomplish by removing Outlook Express?

she uses ie, her isp is novocon.net. they have their own webmail, and that doesn't get any junk mail, but it stillall loads up on outlook express and youhave to delete constantly, or it will plug up alll mail. what should i do? she sends me mail on novocon webmail, but i don't get it. the only thing iwant to accomplish is to quit getting all the junk,unknown mail from outlook express, so she can receive normal mail, and she can send mail from outlook express also. don't really like the mail setup from novocon webmail. like outlook express much better, if it would only work like mine does.....help me

I have also the same annoying spam emails,one time 400+ when I logon to outlook express in the morning and another 200+ in the afternoon.I believe that has alot to do with myself joining the communities in the past.Man, what can you do to stop this for good other than changing the user name and back to square1.

Not quite sure what you mean by it doesn't get any junk mail.
The messages must go through the ISP's mail server before they can be downloaded to Outlook Express.


These links should help you filter out unwanted messages using Rules in Outlook Express:
