Setting Description

Don't move mail to my Junk Email folder

Select this option button if you want to turn off junk email filtering. If you select this, you won't be able to use any of the other options on this tab.

Selecting this doesn't turn off the junk email filtering that's been set by the administrator for your account.

Automatically filter junk email

Select this option if you want to use junk email filtering. This is in addition to the junk email filtering that's been set by the administrator for your account.

Safe Senders and Recipients

Add senders you trust and recipients that you don't want to block to this list. Email from these senders or to these recipients will never be treated as junk email. Safe recipients include groups that you're a member of and from which you want to receive email messages. You can also add individual email addresses to your Safe Senders and Recipients list. A recipient is the intended destination of a message. Items that are from or sent to a specific person or group.

Trust email From my contacts

If you select this box, email from any address in your Contacts will be treated as safe.

Blocked Senders

Blocked senders are domains and people you don't want to receive email messages from. Messages received from any email address or domain listed in your Blocked Senders list are sent directly to your Junk Email folder.

Don't trust email unless it comes from someone in my Safe Senders and Recipients list or local senders

In addition to Safe Senders and Recipients and Blocked Senders, you can use this setting to treat all email as junk unless it comes from someone included in your Safe Senders and Recipients list or from senders in your shared address list.
