Manage your lists in the shortcut menu.
Most likely, your Safe and Blocked lists will evolve as you receive e-mail. Outlook lets you add names to these lists straight 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.
One nice thing about these lists: they're portable. You can easily move your Safe or Blocked lists to a different computer. For example, if you get a new computer, you can just export the lists from your old computer and import them to the new one. You can also share your lists with a co-worker.
Keep in mind that if you're using Exchange Server 2003, no importing or exporting of lists is necessary. Because Outlook on your computer and the Exchange server share information, they use the same Blocked Sender, Safe Sender, and Safe Recipient lists automatically. If you change computers, the server shares the lists with your new one.
Tip If you created a Junk Senders or an Exceptions list in an earlier version of Outlook, you can still use these lists. Just import them to the Blocked Senders or Safe Senders lists in Outlook 2003. Not sure how to do this? We've included a link to detailed steps in the Quick Reference Card at the end of this course.
