Dan,

That is the boat I quickly got into too. The calendaring, alert, contact
stuff has become SO useful. I use Eudora years ago when I first got on the
internet and then moved to Netscape Communicator. It has only been in the
last months that I have basically given up on Netscape which I never thought
I would do. Got sick and tired of it crashing all the time. And I am WELL
versed in all the fixes for that, etc... And yet IE is fine. Plus that fact
that more and more sites are requiring use to be using IE and won't work
with NS. So I started playing around with IE more (IE 6) and then Netscape
Communicator trashed a bunch of email and that was it. :-(

Hey Chuck!  I'm tellin' ya, Outlook is demon software, don't you know?  <g>
Sorry I can't help you on the filtering.  Must be some of the MicroSoft
magic working there.  Seriously though, even if you figure out the filter
problems, will you be content to have an email client that blocks many, MANY
file types?  What a PITA!

Why not try the free, "sponsored" version of Eudora?  My limited experience
with it has been that the ads are non-intrusive, but as always, YMMV.  I use
Outlook only because of the calendaring and alert notifications, and just
make sure that everyone sends me their malicious files inside of a zip file.
If there was a free or nearly free software that had the calendar and alert
notifications that I rely on day by day, I'd drop Outlook in an instant.
Does anyone out there know of one?  THE KEY IS THAT I CAN SET AN APPOINTMENT
FOR AUGUST 3 AT 5:10 PM AND HAVE SOMETHING POPUP EITHER A DAY OR 8 HOURS OR
15 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE APPOINTMENT.  I have seen many calendar apps but
they do not have this function.

Anyone familiar with the Junk mail filters in Outlook ?

What I am wondering is how/what it uses to determine this.

I know you can click a message and designate it as junk mail. And I have
done that. But stuff is going into the Junk Mail folder that should not be
in there. I have looked at the addresses in the Junk Mail setup and don't
see how it is doing this. Does it look at the sending address or what ?

I had to give up on the Adult Junk Mail filter because it too was getting to
many wrong emails and sending them into the Adult Junk Mail filter...

Thanks !
