Junk Mail, Safe Sender, and Clutter

Junk Mail

Are you receiving a lot of junk mail? In Office 365, go to Settings, Options, and then select one of the following: Block or allow, or Mail > Accounts > Block or allow. This will help to control unwanted and unsolicited messages by creating and managing email addresses and domains that you do and do not trust. Click here to learn more about junk mail settings.

Safe Sender List

Another option that is a useful way to allow you to control who you receive messages from is by using the Safe senders and recipients tool. Safe recipients are recipients who will never accidentally be sent to your Junk email folder. To learn how to manage your Safe senders and recipients email settings in Office 365, please click here.


You can also filter low priority email by using Clutter. Once Clutter is turned on, as new email comes in, it takes messages that are most likely to be ignored to your Clutter folder (which can be turned off at any time). Click here to learn how to set up Clutter in your inbox.
