Outlook 2003 'You Just Received Junk Email Notification'

I use Outlook 2003 and have the Junk Filter turned on . I know the first time you receive a junk email Outlook will pop up a notification window letting you know there is an email in the junk folder. Well I checked the box 'not to notify me anymore' and closed the Junk Notification Window.. I would like to turn that notification window back on.. I'm bad about not paying attention to the junk folder and on occasion legit emails are sitting in there.. I looked all in Outlook Options and couldn't find anywhere to turn that back on.. Is there a way to turn that notification back on? Thanks in advance for any input!

I have seen that - I believe it's the "Junk Email" Rule.
I haven't found how to recreate it though.
I wonder if you were to proceed with Help/Detect and Repair if it would regenerate that rule, as I can't see a way to recreate it...

Hi,

Just to test what you have said I have installed a fresh copy of microsoft outlook 2003.
I retreived email which contained a few spam messages from my google account, and I didn't receive any such message. Then I checked help file for any mention of such thing, and still couldn't find anything.

Now I am not sure that I understand what you are looking for, as the junk directory is right below the inbox (on the left hand side of the screen). if there is a new email -> you will see it in bold. So why the need for notification?

Aside from that, I've found gmail spam-screening to be working great, it may put by mistake in inbox, but never put a good email in the junk folder (so you can cancel outlook spam screening, and pass your email through a gmail account)

pharmon96,

1. Make the change in Custom Installantion Wizard. In the Custom Installation Wizard, on the Change Office User Options page, click the plus sign (+) next to Microsoft Office Outlook 2003.
2. Click the plus sign (+) next to Tools | Options, then click the plus sign (+) next to Preferences.
3. Under Junk E-mail, double-click Junk Mail Import list.
4. Select the Apply Changes radio button.

Thanks for the quick feedback everyone...

I looked on a different pc where Outlook still pops up the notification and I see no rule listed under 'Rules and Alerts.
war1, you lost me.. How do I access the Custom Installation Wizard? I don't see anything like that under any of the Outlook Toolbar Menus?

I've seen the message box you refer to, but never attempted to delete it. My first thought on what causes it to appear is a checkbox under the Junk E-mail Options, Options tab:

Permanently delete suspected Junk E-mail, etc...

perhaps if you uncheck this the message will return.

The Custom Installation Wizard is on the Change Office User Options page. It is not in Outlook.

War1,
I'm sorry I'm still not getting it... How do I access the Change Office User Options page? If it makes a difference I don't have the entire Office 2003 package installed. I only have Outlook 2003 installed.

Yes, some of the modules in Office 2003 needs to be downloaded to use the Custom  Installation Wizard.

You can re-enable this via the registry;
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Outlook\Options\General
To reset all the dismissed dialogs remove the PONT_STRING value.
To only reset the Junk E-mail notification, remove number 37.



I know its closed but here is the real solution. My users can't seem to check the Folder even with the new message count.
