View Full Version : Blocking popups in Outlook Express

07-09-2002, 01:59 PM
OK... I really hate SPAM, but I've grown rather accustomed to it. But it's beginning to piss me off when I go to the next SPAM message and a website pops up in a browser window that I didn't open. I've been through the rules listings, but can't find a way to block this type of email.

Is there a way to block these automatic popups in Outlook Express? I don't want to kill all HTML because some of the other websites we work with use this a lot in their emails to me. But I want to stop automatic popup windows from being opened. :shoot3:

I've never come across anything in OE to do that but POW! (http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/pow.htm), from AnalogX (http://www.analogx.com/contents/news.htm), is what I use to fix those anoying things though they must be added the 1st time. :smokin:

That has got to be aggravating beyond description, I would have to assume that using the restricted sites security tool in IE would be your best bet.

There's that way too but I'm lazy. ;)

I originally posted something here that I later thought was not a good idea. Please ignore this one.
