For my corporate email, I use Outlook 2016 version 1705 on Windows 10 - This is the Outlook I download using the subscription of Office 365 Pro Plus.

Is there a way to block email ids or domains so that their mail never reaches you - i.e. it doesn't even go to the Junk Folder.

Also, I do not want a junk folder - I want to either block emails or have them come to the mailbox.

Is it possible to do this?

  • You can't prevent that in your local PC. That depends on settings at the email server. If it's corporate, talk to your IT department. If personal like GMail, forget it. – user772515 Nov 3 '17 at 4:55

You can create a rule in Outlook that will delete unwanted messages automatically: "Apply this rule on messages I receive" -> "from people or public group" (or "with specific words in the sender's address" if you you want a domain) -> "delete it".

  • Any spam mails which come in the night when my Outlook is not running goes to the Junk Folder before the rule can see it. – user93353 Nov 16 '17 at 4:40
  • This is how Outlook works. If you need server-side processing, you need to create a transport rule on Office 365 Exchange Server. – thims Nov 16 '17 at 10:31
