I would like to understand what you are saying and resolve the issue.
I get numerous EMails to the hotmail address, some of which appear in the Inbox, and others, lots, which appear in the Junk folder..................this is when using the App provided in Windows 10.
Quite a lot of those in the Junk folder are ones that I want to read, but cannot until I click on the Move Icon, and move them to the Inbox.
What I want to do, is stop those Emails going into Junk in the first place.
Does that make sense , and can I actually do that.
Thanks also Essenbe/OldMike for getting rid of my bad post.
Not only that problem now ..............
I unpinned the Mail App from the task bar so I would not be tempted to use it, however I just opened it up and lo and behold, there are 14 messages in the JUNK folder !!!!
When I check the hotmail address using Thunderbird, none of those messages are anywhere in any of the folders............ now that really is useful I don't think
I use outlook.com (not Hotmail.com) but as far as I can tell this takes you to the same place.
Go to Hotmail.com and sign into your mailbox.
On the left you will see various folders - inbox, drafts, junk, sent mail and so on.
To mark something as not junk go to the junk mail folder, right click on the message and mark as not junk. This will move it to the inbox and also add a rule saying this sender is OK so next time a mail comes from them it will go to the inbox direct. After some time you will have enough rules that you hardly have anything in junk mail that you don't want.
Alternatively you can go to the cog in the top right, select options > rules and put in names of senders (like EasyJet.com) you decided aren't junk. This is a much slower process though as you have to type them in.
All of this can only be done on the web interface - it can't be done in mail app. Your mail app will download whatever is in the folders you see on the web interface (and not necessarily all) and then (possibly) do more processing.
If it is acceptable to you, use this tutorial:
Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10
Use Option Two.
(To remove Calendar and Mail app from current account only) will be what you need to use.
You are getting your e-mails in the IN folder in Windows Live Mail.
What you are finding confusing perhaps is that your original e-mail provider filed them in their junk folder,
When they come to live mail they are all in the IN folder, with perhaps a warning that previous suppliers put them in junk.
To get to the junk folder in W/live mail you have to click on MORE....See attachment.
