Unblocking and Blocking Senders

Monday, November 15th, 2004 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

Unblocking and Blocking Senders

For those who don’t know, you can block senders with most e-mail software. When you “block” someone, all of the e-mail they send to you gets deleted as it comes in. In Outlook Express, just hit the Messages menu and select Block Sender to block the currently selected e-mail. Don’t try this now though or you’ll accidentally block me!

OK, so how do you unblock someone you’ve accidentally blocked?

In Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu, Message Rules, Blocked Senders .


Just highlight the person you want to unblock and hit the ” remove ” button.


PS – Most other e-mail software will allow you to block people either using a similar method or by using “filters.” You can set these filters to automatically send messages to the recycle bin if you like.
