Block all but your address book entries.

Q: Block all but your address book entries.

Is it possible to block emails from everyone else, except the ones listed in your addesss book? I couldn't find an option to do that. Hotmail has a feature to block mail except those on your contact list.
YOu'd figure OE has something as well.

I use OE 6.00.29 WinXP

I am tired of receiving those spam mails advertising some kind of stupid stock alert.
I also use Norton anti spam,. It used to block these, but it seems like they are now coming to my regular Inbox, instead of Norton's anti spam bnox.

The mails contain an image, along with regular text to fool the filters.
Thanks in advance,

Preferred Solution: Block all but your address book entries.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm running Outlook 2000 and it's working fine. The problem I'm having is that I have a distribution list that I use often and sometimes I want to remove one or two names from that list when sending a group email. I can't find a way of removing those names from the address list for one instance; when I remove the names, they are permanently removed and I have to re-enter them back in the address book the next time I use.

Is there a way of removing names from the Outlook address book for one instance without having the names permanently removed from the list?



A:Outlook address book entries

The functionality that your asking for is actually part of the Outlook 2003 where you can crate a "distribution group" from a group of contacts thus removing a contact from the group still leaves you the original contact. The problem is Outlook 2000 does not have this feature of making a "distribution group" when you make a subfolder in outlook address book its just another contact list not a true "distribution group".

There is ONE option. This is to move the user off the contact list your using to sending everyone the email to another list. Then send it. Then move the user back if you need to.

Hey all..

I am running Win2k with Office XP(upgraded from Office 2000). When I click the address book icon on the menu bar, I have 2 Contact lists listed. The first one(which opens by default) gives an error message saying the file is missing or I don't have permissions to open it(I do, I tried logging in as Admin and logging in as the user). I can click OK and then select the second Contact list, and that opens fine.

I don't see any other wierdness anywhere else, but I would like to get that error message taken care of. Also, when I click Contacts from the side menu bar, that works like it should...no error messages.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!!


A:Outlook address book dup entries

Go to the top of the page and select the button for Folder List. In the list you will either see multiple Contacts folders listed under your profile, or there is another profile that is corrupted and is not needed. I would suggest making a backup of your .spt file, deleting the suspect contacts folder and everything should be fine. If you delete the wrong contacts folder, just import it again from the saved.pst file.

Strange problem with OE6. Set up new identity, and wanted to copy addresses from the Main Identity to the new identity. Exported the address book to a .wab file, then imported into the new identity. However, SOME addresses that are definitely in the EXported file do not get IMported.

Have tried several times. First time I exported the entire address book and deleted the folders I didn't want for the new identity, then imported. After noticing some missing addresses, did the export again but left EVERYTHING in it (deleted NO folders), and imported the whole thing (took about 10 minutes on a Win98SE 733MHz machine). Same result... missing some addresses.

Why? What am I doing wrong?

I just ran into this for the first time ever.

I tried to add a new Contact name and data, as I've done for years. When I went to retrieve the name it didn't show. Just to make sure I had saved it I re-entered everything, clicked "Save and Close", with my wife watching me do it as proof that I wasn't going batty, and the name didn't show in the listing. So I did it again two more times. Didn't work. So I then entered my name with a "TEST" added to it. That didn't show up in a search of the Address book either.

Now, to get even screwier, I then entered the name in the little search window at the upper right hand corner instead of opening the Address Book, and lo and behold I find all four entries of the original name I tried to add to start with, but they don't show as entries when I open the full Address Book.


Any ideas as to what's happening? I've got a couple hundred names in my Address Book/Contact list, so I obviously know how to add them, but these aren't showing up.

Hello, I recently had an issue with all of my user profile settings including favorites, address book entries and settings for various programs such as registration info etc. This happened as I was reading my EMail. Suddenly, all of my firefox and IE settings were gone, and my user folder named, Ronald becamed corrupted. Don't know if anything malware crept in, or if a rogue attacked my computer, for my security software became unregestered as a result of this sudden glitch. Any help would be appreciate as to how I can get my old settings back if possible.

A:favorites, address book entries and user profile settings gone

Reboot the computer.  Access your account.  Is it normal, if so great.  If not look in C:\Users and see if there is a folder with your user name or possibly Owner and see if your Favorites are in the Favorites folder.  If there is a user folder and your favorites are in there then you are getting a temporary profile and you will need to rebuild your profile.

I exported my address book from Outook 2003 into the Windows (XP) Address Book. This is great because then I don't have to have Outlook open to view my address book.

However, it isn't linked to my Outlook address book so that whenever I made a change to my addresses in Outlook, it'll reflect in the Windows address book.

I had that set up perfectly in my old computer (Windows 98SE) but can't get it to work in XP.

Any tips or ideas?

A:Solved: Yahoo email unable to insert address from address book

Concerning my post above: I turned on my older XP computer and I had no problem with inserting an address from the Yahoo! address book.

I compared all my settings in both computers and noticed that I had different settings relating to how pop-ups are handled. XP reminded me that the address book takes the form of a pop-up. On my Vista I had pop-ups opening up (?) in a webpage. That is the page which came up blank. After I have corrected the settings, I no longer have a problem.

When I create a new message I begin typing the name of the recipient and I would like it to match up with an address I have in my Outlook contact list. However, it does not read from there. It only seems to look at addresses that I have already sent to in the past. How can I get it to read from the address book? If I click on "TO" or "CC" it brings up another window with a list of addresses from my contact list. From there I can have it pull from the list. I would like to be able to do it withot the extra step.

In the past I've maintained my address book using the built-in Address Book utility that came with Windows. Once each year, I would import my Address Book (.WAB) file into Outlook 2003/XP. (I don't use Outlook for email.) Then I would use the Mail Merge feature in Word 2003/XP to make and print address labels on standard Avery label sheets to simplify address of my Christmas cards.

Since I'm now using Windows 7, and the familiar Address Book utility is no longer available, how can I print my address labels? I have both Windows Address Book (.WAB) and Comma-Separated Values (.CSV) files that contain my address book data. So, I guess I need to know two things:
Which program or utility (preferably free) can I use to print my address labels.
How do I import my address data into that program?

If it helps, I am already a user of Gmail and Google Drive. Thanks.

Is it ok to block it? Will it affect file transfers between my 2 coms or the internet connection or something else?

A:Is it ok to block broadcast address?

It's a NETBIOS port for mapping a drive on the network. If you block it, it will probably affect drive mapping between the two computers. If you put your local LAN in the trusted zone for the firewall, this problem should not exist.

What is even crazier is the fact if I log in as ADMINISTRATOR on that pc I still can not access the internet, but if I go in as a normal user... I can go on the net.

I'm on a network with SERVER 2000 and 6 PC's
The DNS range (from the router) is from to 150...

The IP address of the XP machine that still remains blocked is:
WIN2K pc was and change it to just to make it within the range. Didn't work.

Can I block the WIN2K pc from accessing the net with the admin tools from the server 2000 ? or do you have any tips that I can try from the router side. Please remember it did work. All I do is windows update and norton update. Just one day it stoped working.

I need to know if theres a way to block someone from gettin into my computer directly via wifi- not thru a router but directly into my computer- I know the mac address cause i can see the router using inssider and I see that the signal is weak, but I can see their ubee router in my network window. Can i use the tcpip stack to block it or can i configure zonealarm or some program. Thanks a lot
