You can adjust the junk e-mail filter so that it classifies more or fewer messages as "junk."
- On the Tools menu, click Junk E-mail Protection.
- Choose the level of junk e-mail protection that you want.
Important Unless the level of junk e-mail protection is set to None, legitimate messages might be classified as "junk" and put in the Junk E-mail folder. Check the Junk E-mail folder regularly to make sure that it doesn't contain any legitimate messages.
- Do any of the following:
Allow all messages from a specific domain (domain: In an e-mail address, the domain is that part of the address after the "@" symbol. For example, in the address "firstname.lastname@example.org," the domain is "alpineskihouse.com." A domain is also referred to as a "realm." If you need to log into an Outlook account using a realm, enter the name in capital letters, for example, ALPINESKIHOUSE.COM.).
For example, if you add "alpineskihouse.com" to your Safe Domains list, a message from a person with an e-mail address that contains "@alpineskihouse.com" is never classified as junk.
|Click the Safe Domains tab, and then type the domain name.
Block all messages from a specific e-mail address or domain.
For example, if you add "alpineskihouse.com" to your Blocked Senders list, a message from a person with an e-mail address that contains "@alpineskihouse.com" is always classified as junk.
|Click the Blocked Senders tab, and then type the e-mail address or the domain name.
- Add important message senders to your Outlook contacts. When a contact is saved in Outlook, Outlook does not classify messages from that contact as junk.
- Use the Mailing List Manager to manage messages from a mailing list. Messages that are handled by a mailing list rule will not be classified as junk.
