Filtering Messages To Receive Only From Your Contacts?

Anyone know how to create a filter list that you will only accept mail from
people on your contact list in Outlook and/or Outlook Express. I just dont
understand why is it that Hotmail and Yahoo mail can do this seamlessly. I
have tried to mess around with the filter settings, but with no luck. Even
if you get mail from people on your list to your box and the rest goes to
the trash bin like hotmail would be great.


Thx

Rob

Outlook 2002 has this built into Rules Wizard. In earlier versions, =
you'd have to add each contact to the rules individually.=20

Entourage auto send and receive is not working

Two questions on saving sent messages
Hi, all, I am a new Outlook user (formerly Notes) and want to do two things in Outlook: 1) I do not want to save all sent messages, as some can be discarded immediately. So, I'd like to, for example, have a selection window pop up after I send each message asking me "Save" or "Don't Save" or something like that. Any way to do that in Outlook? 2) For those messages I want to save after sending, I'd like to direct them to a specific, existing folder. I've seen the posts on creating rules to do this, but my interest is different. Since notes to someone ...

Pivot Table
Hi, I have 'hours worked' as a row in a pivot table. I use the drop down arrow to filter/deselect the data I don't want, everything is fine and the totals are adjusted correctly. Lets say I only want the PT to show 'hours worked' >10. So I deselect what I don't need (everything <10). I now know this PT to be 'hours worked greater than 10' but I don't want to see each instance of 'hours worked' 10.5, 11.75 etc etc , just the totals by department (dept is also in data). But when I (right click and) hide the column it reverts back to t...

Can't play video received by e-mail
My mother just recently upgraded to Win7 from Vista. Outlook07 no longer plays media files (wmv, avi, etc) that others send (fwd) to her. It worked fine until the upgrade.

problems sending/receiving emails Exchange 2003 SP2
Ok, let me first start by saying that I know I've committed several sins in this process, but I need to know what to do to get this fixed. Before my problems began I was running Win2000 Server SP4 w/ Exchange 2003 SP1. This server is a DC in the domain, and this is the only Exchange server in the domain. For sake of discussion we'll call the server SERVEREXCH Today, because I'm an idiot I was looking at installing DNS on the server and saw that IIS SMTP and NNTP were installed, so I removed them. This proceeded to be the beginning of the end. Soon after doing this the Exchange...

SPAM filtering #3
Hi, I have Spam filtering on our firewall, third party Spam filtering on the Exchange 2003 server (TrendMicro ScanMail for Exchange). I understand Exchange also has IMF and then the Junk mail filter in Outlook. I thought it might be overkill causing message delivery delays as well as confusing for users having a Junk Mail folder and a Spam folder (TrendMicro). Should I (can I?) Globally turn off either of the two MS filters? Thanks, John Exchange 2003 IMF is not turned on by default. The client can turn on/off the Outlook Junk E-mail filter, but it is off by default, also. -- Ji...
