7.4.5 Handling SPAM

Anyone who has been using e-mail for some time is familiar with the flood of bulk e-mail that can come to your Inbox, most of it being junk. Outlook helps to mitigate the problem of spam with the junk E-mail Filter, which automatically evaluates incoming messages and sends those considered to be spam to the Junk E-mail folder.

To clear SPAM from the email account in outlook, do as follows.

  • In Mail, right-click the Junk E-mail folder in the Navigation Pane.
  • Click Empty "Junk E-mail" Folder on the shortcut menu.
  • Permanently delete all of the message in the Junk E-mail folder Hold down SHIFT while you click Empty "Junk E-mail" Folder on the shortcut menu.
  • Permanently delete a single message Select the message, and then press SHIFT+DELETE.
