How To Keep Mail From Going To Junk On Outlook For Mac

From now on, all the emails that you get from blocked senders will automatically be moved to the Junk mailbox rather than flooding your primary inbox. This allows you to sort and view all the blocked emails separately, if necessary.

How To Keep Mail From Going To Junk On Outlook For Mac

Do you use an iPhone or iPad as your primary mobile device? In that case, you may also be interested in learning how to mark emails as spam on iOS and iPadOS devices too. Just like the Mac, these devices also store emails from blocked senders in your inbox by default, but this can be changed by going to Settings -> Mail -> Blocked Sender Options -> Move to Trash.

So now you have learned how to stop your Mac from leaving emails from blocked senders in your inbox, a nice change, right? Do you think this should this be the default setting Apple uses for its Mail app on the Mac? Do you have another approach to handling blocked senders? Share your experiences, opinions, and thoughts in the comments.

I did all the author suggested, then I also reset my junk mail behaviors so that the junk is filtered before applying my rules. It appears to be working with the one piece of blocked email I then received. Fingers crossed it continues to work.

Much easier in Mojave. Follow to the junk mail preference, then check perform custom actions and click advanced where you can select any number of conditions you wish, and perform any of a number of actions according to these conditions. I have mine set as follows:

Several of my emails each day go to the Junk folder. It is important to note that THESE MESSAGES DO NOT GET MARKED AS JUNK. They are simply moved to the Junk folder, seemingly before they ever get to any of my devices (server action). For instance, messages from my sister's iCloud address ALWAYS go directly to the Junk folder, but ARE NOT marked as Junk: the color of the text does not get changed, and there is NO "Mark as Not Junk" anywhere in the interface. Obviously this address is in my Contacts, as it is my sister. I have lots of emails in my Junk folder like this. They are not the color of the Junk messages, yet they are in the Junk folder. This occurred with the Junk filtering disabled on my Mac, and persists after enabling it.

I have been having the same problem for about 9 months now, and it is driving me nuts. After many years of absolutely fantastic junk mail filtering, where emails were simply marked as potential spam but left in my Inbox for me to decide (but it was always correct), a few updates ago a junk folder appeared all by itself (I didn't want it or ask for it but I can't delete it), and now 10-20 emails a day go into it, almost all of which are NOT junk - as others have said, many are even from me to myself!

And it doesn't make the slightest difference what mail filtering rules I set up - I have tried it with all the options I can see, including trusting known senders, no filtering at all, and everything in between. No difference. Zilch. Nada. Niente. The computer is still ****-bent on putting half my emails into the junk folder even if I ask it not to filter junk at all.

I have lost a lot of work because of this, because emails from clients keep getting filtered in there, and the ones in the junk folder do not appear on mobile devices, so if I am away from home and using my phone or iPad I don't see them until I get back, by which time someone else has invariably got the contract (I am a freelance translator). This is unbelievably annoying - I am beginning to feel like invoicing Apple for the lost work. I work on a very regular basis for a big translation agency, and I receive 10-20 emails a day from them. Virtually all (but, bizarrely, not quite all - about 10% escape) the emails from them go into the junk folder, despite them being in my address book, being a VIP sender, etc. I really cannot imagine how a filtering system could be more useless than this - it isn't even consistent, because only 90% of their emails get filtered, so goodness knows what criteria the system is using, whereby it lets a few escape the net. It is unimaginably bad, and it has been like it for months and months.

It was so good before and it is so unbelievably bad now - it has gone from being the best email system I have ever used to the worst, in one fell swoop. Why do we have to have a junk folder at all? I don't want one but can't delete it. Marking messages as potentially junk and then letting me decide was a great system. This one *****. It really ABSOLUTELY *****.

Why is this? It is utterly idiotic, because it assumes the system is 100% correct, whereas it is actually 90% incorrect at the moment - virtually none of the emails that are going into the junk folder are actually junk.

It's a particular email address that I've managed to keep very clean up until now - I don't get any spam on it, and as far as I know it's never been spoofed to send spam; that would result in me receiving 'undelivered' messages, which I don't get.

OK, it took me a while to find this because I haven't had to do this in years. (You're not supposed to have email messages go to junk mail if the sender is in your Contacts in the first place. THIS is the problem right now. But anyway...) If you go into the Junk folder in iOS, and pull the email message that went into the Junk folder by mistake slightly towards the left, 3 options slide over from the right. If you then select the one that says "... More" a menu pops up from the bottom of the screen. If you select the "Mark..." choice, you can then select a new menu choice of "Mark as Not Junk". The message will be moved to the Inbox, and supposedly a future similar message will be handled more appropriately.

I am having the exact same issue, I don't have any custom junk email settings and messages that used to go to my inbox are now going to junk since the latest update. Moving the message to my inbox does not prevent future messages from the same sender from being sent to my junk mail. This isn't user error so I guess we will have to put up with this until Apple fixes the issue.

Yahoo Mail uses complex filters to determine if specific emails are legitimate emails or if it should treat them as junk mail and send them to the spam folder. Every email is scanned, and SpamGuard, an automated filtering system, makes the decision. In some cases, this decision is wrong, and important emails from your clients and employees might end up in the Spam folder. To prevent future emails from the same sender from going to the Spam folder automatically, you need to mark the email as "Not Spam."
