Blocked Senders not working

I have about 100 domains specified in my "Blocked Senders" in Outlook 2003 (Service Pack 2), but it does not appear to be working. I still get e-mails in my Inbox from domains that are listed as Blocked Senders. My Blocked Senders list looks like this:

@a7g4bg.info
@actagram.com
@alswatchessite.com
@altroconsumo.it
@americanbuilt.com
@aol.de
@appreciatethoseyoulove.com
@aribilgisayar.com
etc...

Any ideas why it's not moving e-mails from the blocked domains to my Junk E-mail folder? Thanks

Greetings, SETP !

Try removing the @ in front of the domain names. Outlook does not recognize this character.

Best wishes!

Thanks for the reply war1. Unfortunately Outlook doesn't let me remove the @. In fact, if I add a new domain without the @ sign, it automatically adds it. For example, if I add "hotmail.com", it automatically adds this instead: "@hotmail.com"

SETP, can you just add "hotmail" without the quotes?

Oh, I did add it without quotes. I only used quotes in my reply above, not in Outlook :)

Add it without ".com".  If you do not type in "hotmail.com", but only "hotmail", @ will not be addded.

Hi, sorry for the delay - was out the country. If I add any address without the ".com" extension, Outlook automatically adds it!!

SETP,

Some program is interfering with Outlook or a file in Outlook is corrupt
1. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL
Do the same for INETCOMM.DLL

2. Disable Outlook Addins.  Go to Tools > Options > Other > Advanced Options > Addin Manager or COMM/Addins and disable the addins.

3. Check if an external program running in the background is interfering with Outlook. Check Firewall, antivirus, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs. Disable these programs one at a time.

4. Create a new Outlook profile.

5. Repair Outlook. With Outlook open, go to Help > Detect and Repair.

6. If no joy, reinstall Outlook.  Go to Add/Remove Programs and highlight Microsoft Office. Click on Install/Uninstall.  A menu will pop allowing you to choose repair or reinstall.

Hi war1

Thanks for all your help. I will try your suggestions. I've awarded you the points in the meantime because it might take me a while to try it and it doesn't look like anyone else will post any comments. Thanks for all your support.

Kind Regards
Fabricio
