  3. Windows 10 Mail, Junk

    All my junk folders om Windows 10 Mail are empty. I now I have had multiple junk mails that windows live would have received and displayed. Looks like they are blocked and not displayed. How do I receive mail considered junk?

    The home tab is here (circled in red) when you open Windows Live Mail.

    Click on the little triangle with the point facing down under the button that says "Junk" (indicated with a blue arrow above). Then click on Saftey options and you should get the choices you want.

    OK, that isn't Windows Live Mail - your picture is the Windows Mail App. Nothing stupid about it - just the names are not always clear with Microsoft and they often change the name of one thing to mean something else.

    I don't know how to deal with junk mail on that. Most likely you have to go to the web and deal with it there.

    Please edit your post above and delete the picture - I see it ends in but unfortunately has your whole address..

    Hopefully someone with @Hotmail will know but I'm sure it isn't in the mail app.

    Windows Live Mail Junk not junk

    Well I do use Hotmail as my main mail program. If you have mail going into your junk folder that is not junk, that's easy to fix. Click on the msg that is NOT junk (small box on left of msg) then you will see a lot of options that you can choose for that msg.
    Mainly....."NOT JUNK" option. This will move that email into your Inbox folder, and any future mail from that sender, also will now go to your Inbox. If you have many emails in your junk folder like this, just put a check mark into EACH box on the left of each email, then....again choose NOT JUNK at TOP of the mail page in Hotmail. All will be moved into your Inbox.

    If I have the junk folder open on the left of the screen with a list of EMails there, and on the right half of the screen there is a screensaver, ngiht sky with a swirl of stars...........must be the default as I have not changed it.
    Click on any message and content is now shown on right side of screen.
    To the xtreme left of the message list are 4 icons at top, Expand, New Mail, All accounts and all the bottom left 4 more icons, Mail, Switch to Calender, Feedback and Settings.
    If I right click on any message in the list, I get 4 icons Delete, Set Flag, Mark as read and Move

    Am I missing something ?

    I do NOT use the Windows Mail app.....which is ON my its very poor mail app. But my Hotmail account IS my main mail address. Which I access from the internet, not from my desktop.

    Nope you are still showing your email address to the whole world.

    Only the fact you have Hotmail (not gmail or something else) is useful and if you leave your address you might get lots of spam. Edit the post and then click on "Manage attatchment" then "delete".

    Lets see if one of the Administrators @Brink or @z3r010 can delete it for you though (post #3) if it is tricky.

    Tried to edit the post, but the "Delete" icon is nowhere on screen when I select the "Manage Attachments" *Sad

    In relation to original question ..........I also use Thunderbird to access 3 other EMail accounts, are you saying basically that I should just bin the Mail App, and stick to accessing ALL mail via Thuderbird ?

    The particular junk question you are referring to is purely a Windows Mail filtering system suspicious.
    If you made an inquiry concerning this e-mail you have nothing to worry about, if you trust the sender click on show full contents.
