Stop Email From Going to Your Junk Folder in Outlook

 

Outlook has been the king when it comes to email clients. There have been many email clients that we have seen over the years including Thunderbird, Mail Bird, or the Windows Mail app but Outlook has always seemed to be the most user friendly and loaded with features. One of the pains we hear about is an issue related to emails going to your junk or spam folder. Below we have outlined some steps you can take to prevent those emails from being misplaced in your junk or clutter folder.

Method 1: Tell Outlook that it is not Spam

 

By telling Outlook the emails are not junk, they will add the email address to a safe sender list. It is a simple and easy solution to implement.

Clutter is only an option in Office 365. If you do not have a Clutter Folder and you are in Office 365, it is possible that it is disabled for your account. If you are interested in having a Clutter Folder turned on, you will want to contact your system administrator and ask them to enable this feature for you.
