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.
