Contacts List

Contacts List:

(contacts list is the same thing as the address book for outlook express users)


Effectiveness: High


Advantages: Significantly reduces false positives. (False positives are good emails that are improperly categorized as spam.)


How does it work:  Any email message coming from a user in your Address book/Contacts folder is allowed to completely bypass all other filters.  It is automatically allowed through and into your Inbox.


Limitations: Contacts may still occasionally send chain letters and other messages you may not want to read. 


Recommendations: The Contacts folder/Address book should be enabled for almost every user.  There is virtually no downside and you can rest easy that once a user is on your friends list any email from that user will not be accidentally misclassified as spam.  We highly recommend leaving this option turned on.
