    • To classify a message as junk and move it to your Junk E-mail folder, Ctrl+click or right-click a message header and then click Junk Mail > Mark as Junk.

    • To classify a message as junk and block the sender, Ctrl+click or right-click a message header and then click Junk Mail > Block Sender.

  • Add important people to your Outlook contacts. When a contact is saved in your contacts list, Outlook does not classify messages from that email address as junk.
