    Under International tab of Junk E-mail Options, there’re options for Blocked Top-Level Domain List and Blocked Encoding List. With this option, you no longer’ve to block senders one by one!
  4. Contact Index Bar follows current format in Regional and Language Options on your system. For East Asian users, sorting by stroke count is very common. In the Contact Index Bar, the index is shown by number of strokes instead of the pronunciation alphabet.

Secondary Index Bar: If your contacts folder contains names in more than one language, it’ll be a challenge to switch current format in Regional and Language Options to get index bar you want each time. Simply click on Secondary Index Bar button located at bottom of Contact Index Bar and select additional index bar you like.
