Receive a lot of spam emails, like the majority of people
While some may be legitimate, much of it is probably spam. Fortunately, Microsoft Office 365 provides several ways to help you manage your junk email settings and keep your inbox clean.
Any email from these addresses will automatically be sent to your junk mail folder. Email from these addresses will never be considered junk mail.
To help Office 365 better identify junk mail, you can click on the Not Junk link next to any email that was incorrectly sent to your junk mail folder. This will help Office 365 learn what kind of email you consider junk mail.
You can do this by clicking on the gear icon and then choosing Empty Folder from the drop-down menu.
After following the above steps, your Office 365 account automatically updates your Junk Email options. This will save you time handling your email by keeping it organized and tidy in your inbox.
