    Default Junk email filter automatically moving spam?

    Hello!
    I'm using MS outlook 2002 and Zone alarm and I want the zone alarm spam filter to automatically move all spam to the junk email folder as soon as they are recieved in my inbox. Now I have to first click "Scan selected folder" for it to go through the emails for spam. Is it possible to configure it so that it processes all new mail at once when it hits the inbox?

    If you have filters that move the mail then no. But in version 7 it will scan multiple inboxes.

    You want to use your own spam folder instead of the ZA Junkmail folder?

    No, I want to use the Zone Alarm junk mail folder, but I want the spam to be scanned and moved at once when they arrive in my inbox, not like now where I have to click on &quot;Scan selected folder&quot; after the emails have arrived to have the spam moved. I can't think of a better way to explain what I mean, I hope you understand.

    If you hit m over the head with a rock enough times, I will understand soon or later it is a rock. What I don't get is you are asking for the filter to do what it should be doing. Try turning off the spamfilterin ZA, then reboot windows, turn it back on again, and then start up your mail client again, and see what happens.

    That's ok
    No, it doesn't move the email upon arrival for me. I tried reinstalling several times with no success. I now tried to upgrade to zass 7.0 and now Outlook crashes when I click &quot;Scan selected folder&quot; and the &quot;Block&quot; button doesn't seem to work either. Any ideas?

    There seems to be a problem between version 7 and some installations of outlook. You may want to report your problem to tech support. They may need some help in tracking down that problem. http://www.zonelabs.com/tsform
