Take steps to reduce the amount of spam reaching your inbox.

Occasionally, one or more spam messages will appear in your Outlook.com inbox, but most will automatically end up in your Junk folder. At the same time, only a few legitimate emails are accidentally filtered into the Junk Email folder. To keep the number of fake spam messages low, select the default spam filter instead of the restrictive “Exclusive” filter.

The instructions in this article apply to Outlook.com and Outlook Online.
