Microsoft Outlook

Have you ever received emails from people you do not want? If so, the Microsoft Outlook can help you as it allows automatically delete emails from unwanted senders, so as not to disturb you.

There are two basic methods for automatic deletion e-mail in Microsoft Outlook: Rules and Sweep. The method Rules refers essentially to rules that the Outlook client must follow. You can set a rule to tells Microsoft Outlook to delete emails automatically and permanently from specific shippers.

The Sweep, on the other hand, is one tool integrated in web application Microsoft Outlook, which deletes emails from your Inbox. It's a little simpler to use, but it does not have all the complexity and power of the rules. However, he is still doing his job properly.

A rule will be valid Outlook desktop client only and Sweep will only apply to website application of Outlook.

The rules work in the folder where you create them. Therefore, you must select an unwanted one e-mail in your Inbox to work. After selecting one e-mail, click Home> Rules> Create Rule.

Select the "Next" button and again "Next".


Give your rule a name, select "Execute this rule in Inbox messages" and click "Finish".


The rule is ready and will automatically delete emails coming to your Inbox from unsolicited senders.

Sweep also works on specific folders, such as rules. This means that you must select an email in your Inbox and click on "Sweep" option on the toolbar.
