From time to time I receive emails which have been marked as SPAM (in the subject line) I have a rule set up to delete such messages. Whilst that works well there is on occasion a message which actually isn't SPAM after all. I can copy the email to the desktop and edit it with notepad to remove the word SPAM from the subject line and then save and drag it back into Windows mail but the situation I have is that I have a (mail) folder which has a large number of needed emails incorrectly marked. Does anyone know of a utility that can be used to rename the subject line (specifically to remove the word SPAM) from all messages in a given folder?
Over the last couple of weeks I have been inundated with loads of French spam in my Inbox. This is probably because my BB provider (Orange) is owned by a French company (I live in the UK). But what's really annoying is the sheer amount that I am receiving. I have been trying to set up message rules to keep it out of my inbox (looking for certain words or phrases in French etc) but I'm starting to lose the battle against. I don't want to change my ISP as (for now) my speeds are pretty good and I don't pay a lot per month for it any way.
1- I put my charter.net email into Vista mail works great but now I can only get my email by going through vista mail. If I go to charter.net It says NO MESSAGES, but there are because I can get them when I go into vista mail.
Also I got an email from a trusted sender and Vista mail pt it throug to spam and said it could have been phishing, I am 100% it was not. I right clicked on the email and put it in trusted sender. Why didVista mail do that Finally I hate how when I go into vista ,mail even if I right click on an email It will open it (so say I right click on a spam email to delete it, vista mail will open it?
Some valid, safe mail is going to my spam folder. Often it's plain text messages that are coming from people in my contacts. The message is higlighted in "Red" as possibly unsafe and placed in my Spam Folder.
The problem is Gmail? I am getting so much Spam, IN my Spam folder? everyday, around 50 or more. I have created filters, to delete the individual spam, but it keeps on coming? Is there a spam filter, or a free spam software, that I can use with Gmail?
I know this is the Vista forum for Outlook Express but I can't seem to navigate to the one for XP. Anyhow I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. When sending a message in Outlook Express 6.0 in Windows XP, the message will say there were errors but in the details section it is blank. There will also be a copy of the message that stays in the outbox BUT the message is being received by the recipient. Also, I can't delete the message from the Outbox and the message keeps getting sent every time OE is openned.
I only have 80 small size messages in my windows mailbox but cannot get any mail through because of a message that says my mailbox is full. Anybody know why and short of deleting everything how to expand the memory
I have a desktop and a laptop and I'm trying to send 3 jpgs from one to another. These are big files but I have sent a dozen emails with as many pix as contained in the one I am currently trying to send with no problem. I keep receiving the below message on mail. I have nothing in my Inbox,deleted or junk on either PC yet it keeps returning the message?

I have only had Vista for 10 days and already I'm getting messages that my mailbox is full and some messages are being blocked. I used Outlook Express for 6 years and never had this problem. A tiny mailbox is no use to anyone, how can I increase it's capacity ?
Recently I've been getting swamped with spam. Windows Mail segregates most but not all of the approximately 50 to 100 a day. Most have Pfizer in the From field but most are different and seem top be medical advertisements in general. I feel as though I'm being attacked! Is there anything I can do about this? Would it do any good to complain to my ip?
I use Outlook Express to send and receive email. How do I get rid of a spammer who keep sending me junk email.? I have asked this person to stop...but he continues to keep sending my junk mail that I do not want. I have put him on on Blocker senders list but that does not help I send a email to my ISP about the problem and MSN abuse support (that is the email he uses)!
my mail deletes spam mail automaticly, but i noticed it delets mail from my friends that it shouldn't be deleting and leaves mail that it should can some one help me shut this off or figure out where my spam folder is.
So there I was, infront of my computer about to install some software on my computer that I was missing, I opened the folder where the install file was and dubble clicked it like every other human being would do, the folder stops answering and I am wondering if that's just gonna take a while to load, after half an hour of loading the not-answering folder window I pushed ctrl-alt-delete, went to my joblist and disabled the folder that way.
Shortly after my folder finally is closed I feel some heavy delay on the computer so I checked my prossesses that my computer was running and it was not normal.
Normal uptime running prossesses: ~80 At that very moment after closeing folder: ~106...................
There are emails that are not getting through to my computer. I suspect it is McAfee Total Protection's Anti-Spam. It is set to its lowest level. There is an Anti-Spam folder, but they don't go there either. My ISP (Roadrunner) is set to send all emails to me, so it is not them. We are very careful computer users and do not open attachments. How dangerous would it be to disable the Anti-Spam?
I`m having a Anti-Spam Error. I don`t know how to enable it again, i already tried everything in the Options, Advanced Options, etc. (Btw, I have AVG Internet Security 8.0). How do i enable this bar on my desktop? I have an strange icon on my taskbar (i think thats the name). When i leave the pointer on the Icon, no names or something comes. When i try to install Language Packs ( Brazillian ) the setup never ends. It stays on installing Language Pack. ( for like 2 hours).
Vista Home Prem/SP1 fully updated/WM. Emails from my bro-in-law have suddenly (since 16/06/08) been marked **SPAM** in the subject line. Since his domain is "freeserve.co.uk" perhaps this is triggering the subject renaming. Unlikely since other emaiIs from the same domain get through unblemished. Is this action likely to be through WM? Vista? or my email server? Bro-in-law is in my safe senders list. Any ideas how to stop this? A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
When I click on a new message and try to delet it move it to folder or spam I get a message that says an unknown error has occurred. MY email is also not moving things automatically to spam as I hhad it set up.
i'm having a problem where every approx third time i use outlook 2007 i get the following error after i quit it:
microsoft visual c++ runtime library error Runtime Error! Program C:prog... This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. please contact the the applications support team for more information.
event viewer shows that this is the anti spam toolbar as faulting application. i also get a uac requesting permision for same toolbar every time i quit. i have contacted trend micro support who have told me that this is a microsoft problem and i should contact them - i'm not convinced about this hence this post. when i disable uac neither problem occurs. i have vista hp 32 bit and have also another pc with windows 7 ultimate with exact same problem
I'm running Vista and I have Windows Mail. Windows Mail is filtering out Spam that has nothing in the Subject Line (blank). But - it puts it in my Junk Mail folder and when I'm away for a week or so, this spam builds up (in the 100's). I need to find a way to create a Rule that 'Deletes' it from the Server, so that it never reaches my email.......
I've been receiving hundreds of spam messages per day. Many of these take advantage of a diabolical trick: they spoof my own email address as the sender. Thus, if i try to block them, i block all messages that are returned to me from certain email lists that i participate on. How do i deal with spam that spoofs?
I keep getting these spam emails from random valid email addresses telling me I have X amount of dollars waiting for me in a online casino. Every time i delete and block the emails address i get another from another email address generated. Its obviously spyware, I have run AVG and spybot and it hasnt fixed the problem. I cant adjust my spam filters cause sometimes theres important emails which get IDd as SPAM by accident. Is there anyway to fix this?
