5 ways to manage emails and control spam in Outlook

JD Sartain | March 13, 2015
Spam lives on, despite all our efforts to snuff it out--but Outlook has some features to help slow it down. Here are some things anyone can do, plus some tips for working within a corporate Outlook system.

Check your spam folders often at every level, especially if you're expecting a communication that never shows up. It's generally easy to access your spam folders at the ISP level, because most providers offer an email program with the service, which includes a spam folder. Individual company policies may not be as flexible or convenient. Talk to your network administrator if you're missing emails to determine whether the contents of the spam folders are accessible and available to review. If not, ask your friends, colleagues, and associates to monitor their communications and call you if you don't respond in a timely manner. Or, if your company policies allow it, consider providing a second, backup email address to catch those drifters that wander into corporate traps.
