Reduce Spam in Outlook
If you have an e-mail account, you will get spam, that unwanted e-mail that
clogs millions of Inboxes every day with obnoxious offers for mortgage
refinancing, low-cost prescription drugs, or celebrity pornography. Unless you
actually enjoy deleting these messages manually, you can use Outlook to
filter your e-mail for you.
Setting up Outlook’s junk e-mail filter
Outlook can move suspected spam to a special junk e-mail folder
automatically. Because Outlook looks for keywords in spam, be aware that it will
never be 100 percent effective in identifying spam, but it can identify the
more blatant spam and save you the time and effort of deleting the messages
yourself.
To define Outlook’s spam filter, follow these steps:
1. Click on your Inbox folder.
2. Click the Home tab.
3. Click the downward-pointing arrow that appears to the right of the
Junk icon.
A menu appears, as shown in Figure 19-4.
