Outlook?s Spam Filter is Awesome

I have been using Outlook 2003 for the past 3 months. There are a couple of features in Outlook I really like.

The SPAM filter works great. I spent about 2 weeks marking junk mail as junk when it came in my inbox. After that time I seldom receive any e-mail that I don?t want to receive.

Outlook also has a feature that doesn?t show graphic images unless you ask it to.  Messages open fast and I am sure that by not connecting to the images, you are not announcing your presence to spammers who may be tracking messages that are opened by the number of views they get.  I kind of consider this to be a security feature.

All in all I am pleased with the new version of Outlook.
