    The two-step verification emails show up in my inbox but I added a rule to mark the domain name safe a long time ago (verified that "techpowerup.com" is still in the safe sender list).

    Delete Junk Email and Block Senders

    Hi,

    Please answer this question to assist you better.

    How are you accessing mail e.g. Mail app or Outlook?

    I understand your concern about blocking sender and finding for junk folder on Mail app in Windows 10, we will help you with this issue.

    Method 1: How to block the sender.

    I would like to inform that, Mail app is by design does not have option to block the sender, instead you can block the sender from Outlook account and same applies to Mail app as well.

    If you want to add the sender of the certain email to your blocked senders list, kindly follow these steps:

    • Sign in to your account.
    • Open or view the email you want to be blocked.
    • Click Sweep on the toolbar.
    • Select Delete all from…
    • Tick Also block future messages.
    • Click Delete all.
    This will also delete all messages from the sender.

    Here’s how you can add the email address manually:

    • Sign in to your account.
    • In the upper-right corner of the page, click
      wheel/cog icon
      , and then click on Options.
    • Under Preventing junk email, click
      Safe and blocked senders.
    • Click Blocked senders.
    • Under Blocked email address or domain:, type the email address where these emails came from.
    • Click Save.

    Method 2: To find junk folder in Mail app

    To find junk folder on Mail app follow: Log-in to Mail app, in the left-pane click on
    More and you will see Junk folder.

    Do let us know the status. Thank you.

    Finding an Outlook email sender by typing his name.

    Sender name in Mail app for PC and Outlook Mail for Windows Mobile 10 shows email address, not name

    Thank you for your answer Desiree Yau. Finally somebody flagged as “from Microsoft” answered here.



    Well Desiree, the here described issue is in my opinion not really a “concern”, it’s all about a
    severe software bug in Windows 10 Mobile’s built-in email-client, named “Outlook-Mail”(and apparently in the desktop version as well)!



    I believe that I already said everything here and especially in the indicated

    other community-thread
    (which I opened in November last year). There I have described and documented the whole matter very thoroughly, even with screenshots.



    Normally there wouldn’t be anything else to add to what Elias has already said, from my side.



    But dear Desiree, please allow me to inform you that…



    1.) “Outlook-Mail” can’t be uninstalled from a Windows 10 Phone! There’s no way to do it, not to my knowledge. I of course thought about this before, but couldn’t find a way to un- and re-install this system-app.



    2.) “Troubleshooting steps” do not really exist. What I first tried was to delete the corresponding email-accounts form Outlook-Mail and then reconfigured them. This led to nothing. The other thing that I always do after each update for “Outlook-Mail”
    (and there came a lot in the past months) is to soft-reset my Phone each time right after each update. But this leads to nothing as well.



    Performing a radical hard-reset also wouldn’t make any sense, from my logic, because, I repeat: In my case the problem
    exists on both of my devices already from the very beginning on, right after I turned them on for the very first time, after having them bought
    brand-new in August 2016.

    And, other users tried hard-resets already but reported that this also doesn’t resolve the problem of the missing sender’s name (mentioned in

    this thread
    from the Windows Central Forum).





    PS: I think that the subject of this thread here is a little bit misleading and not clearly describing the exact problem. I think we should better continue our conversation in (my) other thread with the subject


    Outlook-Mail
    sends emails WITHOUT the sender's name! The sender's name is NOT transmitted!


    . I think my subject describes the problem more accurate.
