I'm not sure what you are agreeing with. I posted responses to the question from other forums, however I can't confirm any of them on my version of WLM from 2009. While I have seen a couple of rare emails with the statement "delete and block | allow sender" it certainly does not happen with normal email from sources that are not in my contact lists (safe, blocked, or normal). So I'm still a bit confused as to exactly what makes that option appear.

I'm using the 2011 flavour and if I empty my trusted and blocked email lists almost every email I receive has an option above "Unknown sender-allow-delete and block" even those in my contact lists until I allow them.

I notice that under "Safety Options" there are four levels of Junk mail filtering (no, low, high, and safe list); mine is set to low. Perhaps that might explain the difference.

Could well be. Mine is set at high Windows Live Mail "Block and Delete" so that makes sense.
