Outlook 2002 adding "spam:" to messages

Outlook 2002 adding "spam:" to messages and I cant seem to turn off the spam function. I have postini, and it is filtering messages for me, but does not add a perfeix to the message, so I think it's outlook adding the "spam" to messages. Is there a way to just turn it off all together?

thanks,

devisor36,

2 more suggestions

a) did you check the same location that solved your issue in OL 2003..

b) May be you have an add-in software in outlook that might be filtering.. check for that too

Hi,

I reposted this question because I dont have 2003, so it didnt really sove my problem because the button doesnt exist. I dont have any add in's. I gues perhaps postini.com is adding it, I will check that now. I cant find that junk email configuration eindow in outlook 2002, is there one?

I believe that your ISP is adding spam to your emails.  I know SHAW and TELUS here in canada add text to emails they detect as spam.  You should login to your ISP's webmail service or account service and turn off the built in spam filter.
