Written by Louise Fahys

The average office worker sends or receives around 120 emails per day, with many workers receiving significantly more. This overwhelming number of emails is just one of the many reasons why an email Spam folder is a critical feature. A Spam folder can filter out useless emails that would otherwise crowd up an inbox and waste a workers time.

Luckily, Office 365 users have the ability to avoid this problem by configuring their connection filter, which enables a user to set up a safe senders list and a block senders list.
