Audio course: Slice the spam! How Outlook helps protect you from junk e-mail

Slice the spam training course
Junk e-mail, often called "spam," can be bothersome and even offensive. Take this course and learn to use the features in Microsoft Office Outlook® 2003 that can help you spend less time managing less junk e-mail.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Two self-paced lessons and one practice session for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Use the Outlook 2003 Junk E-mail Filter to its full advantage.
  • Accept or block messages from specific people or domains (a domain is the part of an e-mail address after the @ sign).
  • Understand why some pictures are blocked in e-mail, and what your choices are, for controlling whether pictures are displayed.

Are you tired of being pestered by e-mail messages from people you don't know, trying to sell you products or services that you don't want? We've all seen them: messages about soap that will make you thin, loans that will make you rich, or pills that will make your small parts big or your big parts small. (Never mind that you don't even have those parts!) It's junk e-mail, often called "spam," and it's as ridiculous as it is relentless.

If you feel as if someone else is in control of your Inbox, take a deep breath and know that help is near. Outlook 2003 includes powerful tools that will help you slice the spam and recapture your Inbox.
