Tech Tip: Microsoft Junk Reporting

We have all been subject to unwanted messages in our e-mail inbox. Nowadays, it is only a matter of time before you see some junk mail find its way to you. The first and, up until recently, last line of defense was to label a message as junk or even block the sender altogether.

The problem with this method is that the onus is completely on the user. It is their responsibility to fight off the hordes of junk e-mail that come in on a weekly basis.

Microsoft has helped to alleviate some of that burden. With their new junk reporting option, you can send the e-mail to Microsoft for analysis. The information that you provide will help them improve the effectiveness of their native junk e-mail filtering technologies.


Here is how you report junk e-mail to Microsoft:


Right-click on the e-mail that you wish to report.

Select Junk > Report Junk

Junk Reporting

You will then see this pop-up. Select Yes to report the e-mail and move it to your junk folder.
