    Outlook 2016 Junk or Junk Email

    I have tried Googling but so far no solution.
    I just logged into my web client and it also shows 2 x Junk folders.

    From @jimbos45 post, I should have only 'Junk Email' folder.

    In my both Outlook 2016 and my web client, I can delete 'Junk Email' but not 'Junk' folder?

    My account is Imap.

    Can anyone suggest how I can rectify this?

    Junk email

    When I get junk email, I click on the link that says, "Add sender to blocked senders list" But it does no good as I still get the junk from them. Is there anything I can do to stop it?
    Thanks, Frank

    Junk email

    It's a never-ending battle. They spammers change their email addresses, so while the previous spammers email address was added to the blocked senders list, the new one is not. The only way to combat this is to engage the high sensitivity filters, which basically block all but people you have in your contacts list. This means all email goes to your junk mail filter unless the sender is in your contacts. But, this means you can't get any email from senders you aren't expecting unless you check your junk mail folder and add them to your contacts.

    This also isn't perfect, since the spammers use tricks like using your own email address as the source, or hijacking your friends email accounts and sending spam from their accounts.
