Where is blocked senders list?

    Where is blocked senders list?

    I rebuilt my PC recently, and although I backed up everything in my Emails
    folder (and thus all my emails were kept), I lost my blocked senders list.

    Where is it stored, so next time I can back it up and restore it?

    Thanks,

    SteveT

    What is the path of your "Emails" folder, I back up the whole Mail Store -
    which I've set to "d:\application data\mail storage", I think the black list
    got restored when I did a restore a few weeks ago. What's your backup
    process.

    It's not obvious to me where the black list exactly is kept - maybe in
    "D:\Application Data\Mail Storage\Mail.MSMessageStore" which looks
    suspiciously like an OE database - OE has never been on this system - dunno

    It's in the registry at

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Block Senders]

    As part of a backup, you'll want to save the whole registry tree

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail]

    Among other things, you message rules are there, as well as a few
    hundred other settings for WLM.

    That should read:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Junk Mail\Block
    Senders List\

    Re: Where is blocked senders list?

    Would it be rude to as why data of this sort (ie application specific data)
    is being kept in the registry.

    Where is it written that a registry backup should be part of every Mail
    Storage backup - especially if you intend to reinstall WLMail. Indeed why
    does the WLMail install keep the Mail Store and clobber the Registry
    settings, that's a defect.

    The restore of my Mail Store that I referred to in a previous post was NOT
    preceded by a WLMail install, hence I did not lose them

    Hi, Steve.

    To see the Blocked Senders list from inside WLM, click Tools | Safety
    options | Blocked Senders.

    But you probably knew that. ;^}

    I did, thanks, RC. The issue for me was that I'd spent some time building
    up my blocked senders list, and didn't want to lose it when I reformatted
    and reinstalled Vista. I couldn't find where it was stored, but all is
    clear now.

    This is an issue that will run and run with Windows software: whether to put
    application-related data into the registry, the Users area, or the
    normally-hidden C:\ProgramData\ folder.

    Also, the dividing line between application data and user data is debatable.
    For instance, the blocked senders list might be considered one or the other,
    depending on your point of view.

    It's a bit of a mess, to be honest. As a small-time programmer myself, I
    tend to avoid the registry.

    That's Odd, I don't even have a "Junk Mail" key. And my blocked
    senders list is as I stated before

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Block Senders]
