How to unblock a sender in Outlook

  • Outlook
  • 2016
Now we receive a lot of messages. Some messages have been marked as junk mail automatically or by some rules, but sometimes you really need to receive those emails.
For example, subscriptions or regular reports often marked as junk mails.
You can unblock any sender in Outlook easy and fast.

If you have an email from the sender in the Junk E-mail folder that you want to unblock, select this email and do one of the following:

  • On the Home tab, in the Delete group, click Junk:
    Junk in the Delete group Outlook 2016

    In the Junk drop-down list, select Never Block Sender:

  • Right-click on the selected email and choose Junk -> Never Block Sender:
    Junk in the popup menu Outlook 2016

Outlook will show the message that selected sender is unblocked, for example:
