Angela, this has nothing to do with Windows Update.
The error is not stating anything about Microsoft or Outlook Express. The
message is coming from your ISP's (charter.net) mail server and states that
they're seeing the message in question as spam. Do as the error suggests
and "visit http://www.charter.com/postmaster" where you'll find the
550 Message identified as SPAM
The email was flagged as spam by Charter anti-spam detection system. Charter
uses several different tactics to determine if a message is spam. The
primary tactic is using an industry leading anti-spam filtering application,
corroborating feedback from the Internet community and Charter subscribers.
A message will not be accepted by our mail servers if it is flagged as
