Windows 7: Hotmail safe/blocked senders lists

Hotmail safe/blocked senders lists

I use Hotmail through Thunderbird and have been getting questionable emails from a sender in my contacts. So I log onto Hotmail and try to place the sender in the blocked senders list and it tells me:

This entry could not be added because it is already in your safe senders list.

But yet - there is not a single entry in my safe senders list. The contact doesn't exist in my Hotmail contacts, just my Thunderbird contacts.

So does Hotmail have an active spam/blocked address option that works?

scratch that - I went to my inbox and back into my privacy settings and there are the
safe senders listed - odd, they weren't there when I checked it out when the message first popped up.

As much as I'm not a fan of Hotmail - I use it because it works with Thunderbird and fairly well. But this Windows Live is clunky, convoluted, and crowded. All I want and enjoy is Hotmail, wish we could streamline these options.

Blocked Senders Folder location
Where is the Blocked Senders folder located? I want to copy the list for use in a Message Rule so I can have mail from those addresses deleted at server instead of directed to my computer's Junk folder.

Blocked Senders
In Outlook 2010, how do I check the properties of an unrecoginzed e-mail in order to add it and/or its domain to my Blocked Senders list? In 2003, I could right click on an unknown e-mail and get all of that. Thanks, Mike

Add sender to blocked senders list
I normally receive several junk emails in my inbox as the junk email addresses do not appear in my blocked senders list. What is annoying is that Outlook 2007 (and I presume other versions) only allows you to add junk mail addresses individually - if you select several emails, click Junk E-mail...
