Setting Up a Safe Senders List
Fighting Spam
If you’ve opened the junked email in a message window, you can remove it from
the Junk E-mail folder by clicking the Message tab’s Junk button and then selecting
Not Junk.
Setting Up a Safe Senders List
If you want to make sure that email from a certain sender always gets through, you
can add that person to your Safe Senders list. Select or open an email from that
person and click the Junk button (Alt, H, J). Then pick an option:
Never Block Sender (S). Choose this to make sure that emails coming from this
address always land in your inbox and never get sent to the Junk E-mail folder.
Never Block Sender’s Domain (D). The second part of an email address (the
part that comes after the @ symbol) is called the domain. In the email address
sender@gmail.com, for example, gmail.com is the domain. You may want to
make sure that all emails from a certain domain, such as your company’s or
school’s domain, always arrive in your inbox. If so, choose this option.
Never Block This Group or Mailing List (M). Maybe you look forward to your
monthly newsletter from the Tricities Needlepoint Society and want to make
sure you don’t miss it. When you get regular mailings from a group, you can
make sure their messages get through by choosing this option.
Tip: You can ignore a conversation without blocking the sender. For example, say you get an email sent
to a group of coworkers about setting up a meeting. You respond, the meeting is scheduled, and you’re
done with that topic. But two people on the list get into a long back-and-forth about a movie they saw
over the weekend. You don’t want to block them entirely, but you also don’t want to hear the fine points
of their plot analysis. Go ahead and ignore any new emails in the thread by selecting the conversation and
clicking Home➝Ignore (Alt, H, X). Outlook dumps the conversation into your Deleted Items folder—and
sends any future additions to the conversation there, too.
Managing Junk Email
Outlook gives you flexibility in telling it how to deal with spam. To manage your
junk email settings, select Home Junk (or Message Junk if you’re in a message
window) and then choose Junk E-mail Options (Alt, H, J, O) to open the Junk E-mail
Options dialog box shown in Figure 10-14.
The Junk E-mail Options dialog box has these tabs for controlling and managing
your settings:
Options. Here you can set the level of junk-mail filtering (from none to
allowing through only messages from preapproved addresses) and fine-tune how
Outlook handles messages it perceives as junk.
