Subject: Block Sender E-Mail List

In my Outlook Express 6.0 there is a system called "Block Sender"
In this file I have about 100 Blocked senders of  wonderful "SPAM"
E-mails.
I want to copy this file to a new E-mail Blocking system.
The question is : what is the name and location of the E-mail Blocking file
in the Outlook Express system.
Thank you for your help.

pogueman,

This MS Knowledge Base article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/276511/) has information on how to do that.  The information is in the registry.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

sory but I must have not been clear......
I dont want the "System" I wants the Data that I have
input. The e-mail address that I want to block.
I may be wrong but I would think that would be in simple text.

It isn't in a text file or anything that simple.  Remember this is a Microsoft program. :)  To be fair I'm sure they do it for good reasons.

The article mentions the key that contains the entries for blocked senders.  This key can be exported to a .reg file which is a text file.  Those steps are included in the article.  You can then edit and extract the addresses from there if you want or import it into a new computer for use in that computer's Outlook Express program.
