Managing Spam in Outlook 

Outlook has an array of tools for combating spam. Utilizing these tools is key to keeping your mailbox spam free  

  • Junk: The Junk folder is the default spam destination. Non-malicious spam and other marketing emails can be moved the junk folder. Sometimes emails are improperly labeled as junk and accidentally sent to the junk folder. It’s a good idea to review your spam mailbox periodically.  
  • Flag: Emails can be flagged as either “junk” or “spam”. After an email is flagged, it is automatically transferred to the junk folder  
  • Block Sender: Suspicious or unknown senders can be blocked. In the Outlook menu bar select Message > Junk Mail > Block sender. Outlook will then add the sender’s email to the “block sender” list.
