Spam in Windows Live

As our transition to Windows Live is coming very soon we wanted to make sure that you understand that you will notice an increase in the amount of spam that you will receive at the beginning of this transition, however, this will not be the case forever. Windows Live must "learn" what is spam to those of us in EM-S ISD. To help speed up this process we're asking YOU to play a very important part...

1. Don't just ignore the spam that you see in your email.
2. Mark spam as spam by right-clicking on a spam email, then under Junk E-Mail choose Add Sender to Blocked Senders List.

Miss the Training?

Mary Fuller has been kind enough to put together a video that goes through the same presentation that was conducted in the district.

Changing Your Views in Live!

Have you been trying to view your email the same way you did in Groupwise? You can do this by changing your view options.

Changing Views in Live!
With all the changes occurring in email, you can have some familiarity with setting up your email View options or change to the Windows Live way. You can view your email the traditional “Groupwise” way or by Conversation.
To change your view to a traditional view, click the small arrow next to Conversations by Date. Then uncheck the conversation choice. This will list your email by date just as Groupwise did.

However, you may enjoy the new format of having conversations grouped together. You can leave this option as it is and view the emails that are related to each other by subject.
Another option under the View tab is to view the email in the window. You can choose to view the Reading Pane to the right or below.
