    can you tell us in detail , what do you mean by adding spam to messages.

    are you saying you are getting SPAM messages in your inbox. In that case , use the junk filter
    Follow instructions here : http://www.microsoft.com/office/editions/prodinfo/junkmail.mspx

    Possibly because your SPAM filter is ON
    Try to disable doing this and see if you are getting that message

    1. Click on 'Tools' and then 'Options...'
    2. On the 'Preferences' tab, in the 'Email' section, click the 'Junk E-Mail' button.
    3. Here you can change the antispam filter settings.

    I think what he means is that for all the emails that his anti-spam software suspects as being SPAM is adding "spam:" to the subject or message...

    In which case, you should be able to figure out from Sunray_2003's previous post how to disable/alter the settings of your anti-spam software.

    If still no luck:  Do you have an AV or a Firewall installed? Many of these nowadays have Anti-Spam enabled.
