The new Junk E-mail Filter helps prevent much of the unwanted email that
you receive every day.
It uses state-of-the-art technology developed by Microsoft Research to
evaluate whether a message should be treated as junk e-mail based on
several factors, such as the time it was sent and the content of the message.
The filter does not single out any particular sender or type of e-mail; it is
based on the content of the message in general and uses advanced
analysis of the structure of the message to determine the probability that it is
junk e-mail.
Any message that is caught by the filter is moved to your Junk E-mail
Certain e-mail addresses or domain names by adding the sender to your
Blocked Senders List.
