Managing Spam With Outlook 2010

The Junk Email Filter in Outlook 2010 targets the most obvious junk messages received and places them in the Junk Mail folder.

To adjust the filter's settings, navigate to Home > Junk, and then click on Junk E-mail Options:


The filter is set to Low by default, but you can change the settings to make the filter more aggressive. Just be sure to check your Junk Mail folder periodically to ensure that legitimate emails have not been erroneously targeted as junk.


The other tabs in the Junk E-mail Options window are as follows:
Safe Senders List: Email addresses and domain names in the Safe Senders List are never treated as junk email, regardless of the content of the message. You can add your Contacts and other correspondents to this list. All names and addresses in NSCAD's global address list are automatically considered safe.

Safe Recipients List: If you belong to a mailing list or a distribution list, you can add the list sender to the Safe Recipients List. Messages sent to these email addresses or domain names are never treated as junk, regardless of the content of the message.

Blocked Senders List: You can easily block messages from particular senders by adding their email addresses or domain names to the Blocked Senders List. When you add a name or email address to this list, Outlook moves any incoming message from that source to the Junk E-mail folder. Messages from people or domain names that appear in this list are always classified as junk, regardless of the content of the message:


Blocked Top-Level Domains List: To block unwanted email messages that come from another country, you can add country/region codes to the Blocked Top-Level Domains List. For example, selecting the FR [France], and GB [United Kingdom] check boxes in the list would block messages from email addresses that end in .fr and .gb:


Blocked Encodings List: To block unwanted email messages that appear in another character set or alphabet, you can add encodings to the Blocked Encodings List:
