Keep good emails out of the Outlook Junk Mail Folder
Here’s a quick tip on how to stop good emails from getting into Outlook’s Junk Mail folder (normally you’re trying to get bad emails in there).
We all get spam emails. Luckily for us Outlook’s Junk Mail folder does a good job of catching most of them. But there are occasional false-positives… when a good email ends up in there.
Here’s how you can tell Outlook to always trust emails from certain people.
Outlook has a Safe Sender’s list. Anyone on your Safe Sender’s list is authorised to send you email i.e. Outlook will not treat emails from them as junk email.
Everyone I send emails to is SAFE!
It makes sense (most of the time) that anyone you actually write to should automatically be put on your safe sender’s list.
The ability to do this is built into Outlook but is turned off by default. To turn it on:
- Go to your Inbox.
- If you are using Outlook 2010, (on the ribbon) click File > Junk > Junk E-mail Options
For other versions of Outlook, (on the menu) click Actions – Junk Email – Junk Email Options
Click the Safe Senders tab.
Tick the checkbox “Automatically add people I e-mail to the Safe Senders List”.
This little tip should hopefully help your get more of your real emails in your Inbox.
