Outlook 2011 – Junk Email Filter

 

Outlook has a built-in junk email filter that can be used to catch emails that slip through Linfield’s primary junk email filter (Sophos)

 

Set the Junk Email Filter Options

 

Open the Junk Email Protection window.  With Outlook open click on  in the menu at the top of the screen then click on  

 


 

Assign the level of protection.  Click on the  tab and then choose the level of protection desired.  If High or Exclusive is chosen this will most likely flag legitimate email as junk.  Check the  box to delete old messages automatically.

 


 

Configure safe domains.  Click on the  tab to whitelist a domain.  This option can be useful if you want to ensure that email from a specific domain is never flagged as junk.  It is not recommended to whitelist your own domain (linfield.edu) as this can allow email spoofing.

 


 

Manage blocked senders.  Click on the  tab to manage the blocked senders.  Email from any domains entered here will automatically go to the junk email folder.

 


 

Junk Email Folder - Add or Remove Messages

 

Move message out of Junk Email.  Click on the  folder in the folder list and then click on the email that should not be marked as junk.

 


 

Mark as Not Junk.  Click on the  icon in the ribbon at the top of the email window and click  in the drop down menu.

 

 

 

Move message into Junk Email.  Click on the email that should be marked as junk then click on the  icon in the ribbon at the top of the email and click  in the drop down menu.
