    Open OE
    Click on Tools-->Message Rules-->Blocked Senders List...
    Remove the blocked sender

    Blocked Senders Reappear

    Yesterday I sat down and removed hundreds of senders from my Blocked Sender List to, start over. This morning they have all reappeared. What gives?

    Unfortunately, the Blocked Senders list interface is one of MS$ worst pieces of software. You must not only click on the item blocked and then click 'remove', you must also then click the 'yes' box when asked for confirmation (at which time the specific sender is apparently removed) BUT this isn't true - you must now click on the 'OK' button.

    Thanks CCT. Does this process need to be done for each, individually or can I click the 'OK' button when I'm finished?

    Sadly, each individually. Like I said MS$ dropped the ball.

    If you were deleting ALL of them, you could simply delete the registry entry.
