Office 365 (Outlook 2016 for Mac) - About junk e-mail protection
No one likes spam or junk email. The Outlook 2016 for Mac Junk Email Filter doesn't stop delivery of junk email messages, but does the next best thing --- it moves suspected spam to the Junk Email folder.
|NOTE: This document applies to Outlook 2016 for Mac, released in late 2015. For information about how to complete this task using the previous version of Outlook available for Mac, see: Office 365 (Outlook 2011) - About junk e-mail protection|
About junk e-mail protection
When the filter finds a message that appears to be junk, Outlook does the following:
- Moves the message to the junk e-mail folder for that account.
- Assigns the message to the junk category.
- Blocks any embedded pictures in the message. In some cases, downloading the pictures in a mail message lets the sender know that your mail address is active. If a junk mail sender knows that your address is active, you are more likely to receive additional junk mail from that sender.
