Allow all messages from a specific domain.

For example, if you add "alpineskihouse.com" to your Safe Senders list, a message from a person with an email address that contains "@alpineskihouse.com" is never classified as junk.

Click the Safe Senders tab, and then type the domain name.

Block all messages from a specific email address or domain.

For example, if you add "alpineskihouse.com" to your Blocked Senders list, a message from a person with an email address that contains "@alpineskihouse.com" is always classified as junk.

Click the Blocked Senders tab, and then type the email address or the domain name.

Tips: 

  • You can also move a message to your Junk E-mail folder or block a sender from your Inbox:

    • 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
