Chapter 3. Managing E-Mail Messages > Reducing Junk E-Mail and SPAM

Reducing Junk E-Mail and SPAM

You can have Outlook handle junk e-mail for you. You can specify what should be considered junk e-mail and how Outlook should handle that e-mail. You can ensure that e-mail from certain addresses or domains, which might seem to be junk e-mail, but is actually from a person or site that you are interested in gets to you. You can also make sure that the mail you send isn't treated as junk e-mail.

Display your Inbox.

Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.

On the Preferences tab, click the Junk E-Mail button.

On the Options tab, select the options that you want to enable.
