MSN Explorer: Train the junk e-mail filter
Although the junk e-mail filter catches most junk e-mail that gets delivered, it may miss some junk e-mail, or send some e-mail that isn't junk to the Junk E-Mail folder. You can train the junk e-mail filter to be more effective by telling it what is and isn't junk e-mail. The more you train the junk e-mail filter, the better it will get at filtering the right e-mail messages.
Identify e-mail messages as junk
In your Inbox, select the check box for the e-mail message that you want to mark as junk e-mail.
The message is immediately moved to the Junk E-Mail folder.
Identify e-mail messages as not junk
In the Junk E-Mail folder, select the check box for the e-mail message that you want to mark as not junk.
Click Not Junk.
The message is immediately moved to your Inbox.
- Messages more than seven days old are automatically deleted from the Junk E-Mail folder.
- If you access your MSN Mail through Windows Live Hotmail, you can delete junk e-mail immediately, rather than after seven days. When you use this feature in Windows Live Hotmail, junk e-mail is also automatically deleted in MSN Mail. To change this setting, sign in to the Windows Live Hotmail website, and open the Options page.
