Single answer, multiple-choice


You have configured your new account using Windows Mail. You discover that you are receiving a lot of e-mails from unknown addresses that ask you to send them your bank and personal details. How can you protect yourself from these e-mails without affecting delivery of legitimate e-mail with the least administrative effort?



  1. Add the e-mail addresses that ask you to reveal your personal or financial information to the Blocked Senders list.
  2. Set the level of junk e-mail protection to High.
  3. Select the Move phishing E-mail to the Junk Mail folder option under the Phishing tab in the Junk E-mail Options window.
  4. Clear the Also trust e-mail from my Windows contacts option under the Safe Senders tab.

Answer:



  1. Select the Move phishing E-mail to the Junk Mail folder option under the Phishing tab in the Junk E-mail Options window.

Tutorial:
You should select the Move phishing E-mail to the Junk Mail folder option under the Phishing tab in the Junk E-mail Options window to move e-mails seeking your personal and financial information directly into the Junk Mail folder. Phishing is a way to trick you to reveal your personal or financial information through an e-mail message or Web site. Phishing starts with an e-mail message that looks like an official notice from a trusted source, such as a bank or a credit card company. In the e-mail message, you are directed to a fraudulent Web site, where you are asked to provide personal information, such as an account number or password, and then this information is usually used for identity theft.


You should not add the e-mail addresses that ask you to reveal your personal or financial information to the Blocked Senders list to you protect yourself from these e-mails without affecting delivery of legitimate e-mail with the least administrative effort. You can receive e-mails that ask you to reveal your personal or financial information from different e-mail addresses every time. Therefore, adding such en e-mail address to the Block Senders list every time is not a recommended way to prevent phishing e-mails getting delivered into your inbox.


You cannot set the level of junk e-mail protection to the High option to move e-mails seeking personal information into your junk folder without affecting delivery of legitimate e-mail. The High level of protection will not divert only e-mails that try to trick you to reveal your financial information. Instead, it diverts all unwanted junk e-mail out of your Inbox. This will move all suspected junk e-mail messages automatically to the Junk Mail folder but will also potentially affect legitimate e-mail.


You should not clear the Also trust e-mail from my Windows contacts option under the Safe Senders tab to you protect yourself from these e-mails without affecting delivery of legitimate e-mail with the least administrative effort because phishing e-mails usually do not come from people who are in your contacts list.
