# Rewrite the Subject: field to identify the message as spam rewrite_subject 1
NOTE: Outlook Express 6 can only filter local folders used by a POP3 protocol connection. If you are using an IMAP protocol connection, you must use another program to filter mail identified as spam (such as procmail).
Microsoft has several methods for dealing with spam messages, depending upon which version of Office you are running. Older versions relied on simple rules to handle filtering. This amounts to little more than mail sorting. This method is no longer an effective method for dealing with spam. You should consider upgrading to the latest version of Outlook.
As of Office 11 (Outlook 2003), Outlook uses similar methods as offered by other clients, though the interface is very different. Outlook will create a Junk E-Mail folder to store suspected spam messages. The Junk E-Mail filter has four settings, the most effective of which is the "high" setting. If you choose high, you should monitor your Junk E-Mail folder regularly.
