I'm getting more and more spam on Outlook after years of it being minimal and I can't find any filter. Anyone out there any suggestions?

Get the latest office updates first. Then there are many filtering softwares available out there. But they are not free. I would recommend mailwasher.

Your best filtre is the one at the source. See if you E-mail provider has filtering abilities.

You can use a Gmail account to filter your email and then use Outlook to download email from Gmail.

Gmail has a great spam filter!


You can create "Rules" in Outlook to filter your email.

You can switch to the Thunderbird email client. Thunderbird is set up out of the box to protect you better. It's open source and free. It starts by giving you the option of getting rid of spam before you open any mail. And it does not display images until you tell it to, protecting you from html bombs.

It will automatically import everything from another mail client. This includes mail folders and emails and addresses. It works just like OE.
