How do you get rid of the "[SPAM]" in the subject of an email?

Everytime I send or receive email, no matter what computer 
I'm on, it automatically inserts "[SPAM]" into the subject 
of an email.  How do I get rid of this?

Outlook isn't doing that.  Check with your mail administrator or ISP and see 
if they're running a spam filter that is.

How will that help?  It's not spyware that's causing the problem.

All of the sudden the word [SPAM] is inserting itself into the subject line of my e-mails outside of our organization. This just started today and I'm not sure why but I would like to stop it. Please advice. >All of the sudden the word [SPAM] is inserting itself into >the subject line of my e-mails outside of our >organization.

apply filters if the subject say [SPAM]
Hi. We are implemented a spamfilter with a linux server, to protect a MS Exchange Server. The filter work fine, but all the banned messages are stored in the linux server. We need "give" that messages to the users, but we dont know how to create a rule for all the users to move the messages to the junk folder. The idea is: linux mark the spam messages adding the tag [SPAM] to the subject. pass the tagged message to ms exchange, and if exchange detect that tag, move the message to the user junk folder. How can i do that? or is possible do it with a domain template...

[SPAM] in the subject
Hi, I'm using Outlook 2003. I have several email accounts, all working well, except one of them. Whenever I receive an email to this account the text "[SPAM]" will be added to the subject line. If I send using this email account the text will not be added. Any suggestions as to what's going on is very much appreciated. Thanks, Anna This is most likely done by a spamtool you installed or your ISP. Either way; this is not caused by Outlook. -- Roady [MVP] www.sparnaaij.net Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office related News Also Outlook FAQ, How To's, Downloads a...

Outlook 2003 incorrectly marks ALL inbound mail as [SPAM]
I recently configured Outlook 2003 for a client (done this a bazillion times), but all inbound messages are being incorrectly tagged as [SPAM]. I've checked every setting and can't seem to correct this. The same messages sent to other Outlook clients appear correctly, without the [SPAM] tag. A Google search and a MSDN search has revealed nothing.... Any suggestions appreciated! Thanks!

Sent Email contains [SPAM] in Subject Heading
I am using MS Outlook 2003 (SP1). My first test emails on new Dell computer were interrupted by McAffee virus/spam program with red-lettered warning that it had detected spam and was halting outgoing email. Ever since, all my email from Outlook has [SPAM] in Subject heading bar. I am not a spammer and I was just sending test emails to check functionality of Outlook on new computer. I am certain McAffee corrupted the Outlook code. I have examined this problem ad nauseum and I need to do something quickly. Any suggestions? How difficult is it to remove and re-load MS Outlook or the entire...

I get message quite often that have [spam] in the subject. These usually are GOOD messages. What puts the [spam] tag on? Is there a way to turn it off? Can I remove the [spam] on the existing messages?

[SPAM] in subject headers
Running outlook 2000 through a fairly default exchange 2000 box. Since last thursday, when i loaded SP4 to the box, all email from external sources have come through without any alteration to the subject line. Now, many external emails come with a [SPAM] tag in the subject line. All internal mail is fine. The clients had no changes made to it. Is it just coincidence or has the service pack changed something somewhere? Could possibly the ISP be doing this? Thanks Shane ...
