Creating Other Junk E-Mail Rules

Once you configure it and make adjustments for false positives, the filtering technology built into Outlook 2007 can be an effective tool for waging your daily fight against junk e-mail. The filtering technology in Outlook 2007 isn’t perfect, however, so you might need to handle junk e-mail in other ways. One technique is to create your own rules to handle exceptions that the built-in filters can’t adequately address.

You can create rules that look explicitly for keywords or phrases in the subject or body of a message or look for specific other criteria and then move those messages to the Junk E-Mail folder (or delete them). See Chapter 11, for details on creating and working with rules.
