Microsoft recently released its new webmail service Outlook.com to the public. The new email service from Microsoft includes all the features and options you would expect in a good mail service.
Even though Outlook.com includes industry leading spam protection technology, users might occasionally receive spam messages in the inbox. To help users block spam senders, Microsoft has introduced a new feature that automatically deletes messages from spam senders.
In Outlook.com, you can easily add an email address to the blocked list so you can block users who send spam messages to your inbox. When you receive emails from blocked email addresses, Outlook.com automatically deletes them.
In this article, we will show you how to add an email address to blocked list in Outlook.com.
Step 1: Log in to Outlook by entering your email address and password.
Step 2: Click on the gear icon located in the upper-right corner of the page, click More mail settings.
Step 3: Here, under the Preventing junk email section, click Safe and blocked senders.
Step 4: Next, click Blocked senders to add an email address to the blocked list.
Step 5: Enter your email address that you want to add to the blocked senders list and click Add to list.
You can also add a whole domain to the blocked list but we suggest you against doing so as all messages from the blocked domain will automatically be deleted.
From now onwards, whenever you receive an email from blocked email addresses, Outlook.com automatically deletes the email for you.
To remove a blocked email address or domain, select it and then click Remove from the list.
