Outlook Tips

Outlook 2003 lets you add names to your Blocked Sender, Safe Sender, and Safe Recipient lists directly from messages in your Inbox. You could do this by right-clicking the message, clicking Junk E-mail, and choosing commands from the shortcut menu shown in the picture. You could remove names, or add them, from the Junk E-mail Options dialog box.
