    How do I stop spam emails coming into my inbox?

    My system is W10, IE11 and Outlook 2016 - Recently I was looking at various email settings and somehow have managed to alter one of them so that now, spam emails have the subject prefixed with [-SPAM-] but they still appear in my Inbox instead of being diverted to the junk folder. Trouble is I cannot remember how to get to whichever setting I changed so any help greatly appreciated.

    You setup a filter to move all spam to the folder

    My ISP/email provider (Earthlink) has an excellent spam blocker setup at the server level which keeps most of the junk from ever appearing in my client email.

    Just find the setting within Outlook. Some Security applications may put in an Add-In, perhaps look at those as well.

    My thanks to everyone. Have now solved the problem using settings on my ISP's (PlusNet) account
