UD Exchange Online: Email

Junk Email

You should have junk mail filtered at the Exchange server level. The server receives frequent updates and is genreally more effective at filtering junk mail than the local or Web-based Outlook client.

  1. On the Home tab, in the Delete section, click the Junk icon.
  2. Click Junk E-mail Options.
  3. Click the Options tab.
  4. Click No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail folder.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click OK.

To allow for server level junk mail filtering, follow these steps:

  1. Close Outlook.
  2. Log in to Microsoft Outlook on the Web (http://outlook.office.com/owa) using any Web browser.
  3. Click the Settings icon (wheel) in the top-right of the window.
  4. In the Your app settings section, click Mail.
  5. Choose Block or Allow from the left-hand column.
  6. Turn on Automatic Filtering:
    1. If it is set to Don't move email, change it to Automatically Filter and click Save.
    2. If it set to Automatically filter junk email, change it to Don't move e-mail and click Save; then change it back to Automatically Filter junk email and click Save again.
