A Better Spam Filter
If you are tired of spending hours clearing your Microsoft Outlook email in-box of useless junk mail, then you need a better spam filter. But while many programs come with a spam filter automatically installed, it may not be installed to work for you – it could either let in too many malicious emails or filter out important emails. Learning how to create an effective spam filter can help you optimize your time and stop you from pulling out your hair.
Microsoft Outlook comes with several tools to help create a more secure email platform by sending questionable messages to the “Junk Email” folder. However, the preset rules can be too strict, causing you to miss valuable messages. When you first use Outlook, make sure to check the Junk Email frequently. If messages from people you know are getting bounced to the Junk Email folder, you can simply right click on them and either mark the individual or email domain as not spam.
On top of this, you can also create “rules” that will place additional restrictions on what is or isn’t considered to be spam. In Outlook, right click on a message and go to the “Create Rules” prompt. From there, you can add phrases or words that will trigger the spam filter if they are in an email. You could also create a rule for other elements of an email, such as flagging any email that has an unknown attachment. Or, you could do the opposite and make sure that emails with certain content are always sent to your Inbox instead of your Junk folder.

If the junk email and virus filters in your email program are not sufficient, or you would prefer that malicious email never even makes it to your computer where it could cause inadvertent harm, you may wish to use a server-side spam and virus filtering solution. These can be customized and even centrally managed. They can also be updated more frequently than most client-side filters. Server-side filters are better and provide cleaner, easier to manage email, with less effort.
