    Junk mail deletion


    My inbox is flooded with junk mail most of which are repetitive. Before W10 and W11, junk mails that I had marked as junk were automatically blocked; thus, I did not see repeat junk mail in Inbox. Is there any way I can program Outlook Mail to block previously marked junk mail?

    Perhaps

    - or consider using an additional anti-spam program which you can integrate with Outlook.

    Please clarify which Outlook you are talking about
    = MSOffice Outlook
    = outlook.com the online service accessed through a browser
    = Outlook the MS Store app
    = Windows 10 built-in email client

    I think (I am not sure) I have the W10 built in mail which I thought was Outlook, but somebody from Ten Forum (a guru) told me it is not Outlook. I have two PC's: one with original W10 and the other with upgraded to W11 ... and they have identical mail formats. I have 4 mail accounts (addresses) in both, and I keep receiving notification from Outlook that one of them (accounts) is not properly synced and that credentials should be upgraded. This notification has been going on for more than a year. Apparently, the last time it was properly credentialed was June 2021. Same notification continues even after I deleted that particular account.

    I have had this same mail system for years way before there was Outlook. (I did not have Outlook with Vista and W7). The "Outlook" mail started with W10. Same format, but named Outlook.

    Judging by the screenshot you may need to either remove the account & set it up again to authenticate with the email address supplier (Google, Yahoo etc) or create an app specific password for it.
    In theory when a email client has no ‘mark as junk’ option then moving an email to the junk folder should train the account to mark future emails as junk.

    Everyday, I mark 2 to 3 dozens mails as junk and I am hoping the system will eventually block repeat junk mails or send it to junk file instead of Inbox .... but so far, not happening. I have deleted (and reinstalled) the account in question, but even when deleted, I still get the daily notification from Outlook that such account in question has delinquent credential. However, the account, reinstalled, continues to get mail normally just like the other accounts. The junk mails are received in all accounts. But I still do not know what mail system I have. As I said, I was told by some guru members of W10 forum that my mail is NOT Outlook, which I tend to believe because the format is identical to my mail system (except for the missing programmable options of what to do with junk mail) for many years, way before Outlook became a mail service provider. At that time, Outlook was new and it was for something else, not for mail service.

    You have windows mail app, it is Microsoft’s very basic (imo) email client which instead of downloading email to your pc it just shows emails on the servers.
    Which account is showing that there’s problems? Have you tried the suggestion to delete & add the account again or create an app specific password?

    I have done it (delete and reinstall the next day) more than a dozen times, to no avail. I have tried to correct it per instruction, many times and failed each time. That particular account's credential is delinquent since June 2021. However, it receives mail normally like the others. On days that I had deleted it, the same notification from Outlook kept coming daily. How do I stop it?

    Which account is affected - Google, Yahoo, ISP, iCloud etc? If ISP then are you currently a broadband subscriber?

    I do not know what broadband is. I have 5 mail accounts, for many years (decades) - MSN, Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail. The Gmail is the newest(10 years)They were all working well until June 2021 when the Gmail account started getting yellow triangle warning for apparently not being synced properly. The yellow warning is gone after I had it fixed per Outlook's instruction, but the daily messaging to that effect persists. I agree, my mail format is an old MSN mail system, way before Outlook mail. But I do not understand why this daily messaging is coming from Outlook mail.

    What is you mail system?
