    Angry Can't Filter Spam In Outlook.

    I am getting about 100 spam emails per day. I right click each one, select Junk Mail and click on Add Sender To Blocked Sender List BUT day after day the same senders are getting through to me.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Using outlook directly for it

    All the blocked sender function does is send any mail from that SMTP address to your junk email folder, which is pretty ineffective given that these addresses are spoofed.

    As Moby says, something like Mailwasher is probably best.
