Adding an email address to the local Microsoft Outlook Safe Senders list


Many email service providers gift their users daily with unwanted emails which are at best, annoying and at worst, malicious! Most of these unwanted emails are from advertising companies, which either promise to make us rich quickly or offer us the liberty to work from home.

Outlook does a great job at filtering unwanted emails out. However there may be senders that you actually wish to receive emails from.

To ensure you receive the emails that you want, you can add a sender to the safe sender’s list in Outlook. 

How to add an email address to your Safe Senders List in Outlook

Once you have opened your Microsoft Outlook client on your desktop, on the Ribbon, from the Home tab, select the Junk menu option.

  • Select the “Junk E-mail Options…”
