There's nothing worse finding your home mailbox filled with trash: useless coupons, real estate ads for houses you'll never be able to afford (cruel marketers!), sweepstakes entries, direct mail nonsense, and catalogs for you, your clothes, your hobbies, your wife (her clothes, her hobbies), your kids (ditto), and even your pets.
But wait; there IS something worse: Junk mail in your inbox, clogging it with promises of weight loss, virility, cases of champagne, and miracle cream to erase your fine lines and bad memories.
Being on the receiving end of and having to wade through all that nonsense is a huge waste of time, taking you away from what's real and what matters most: your clients, your family, your People magazine... Seriously, you can find yourself losing hours of valuable time each week trying to separate the wheat from the chaff (or if you're gluten free, the kernel from the tassel).
Your personal concierge (or bouncer as I like to think of it), the Junk Mail Filter, evaluates each incoming message (patron) and examines it closely to see if it might be spam (riff-raff) based on several factors including the time it was sent and the content of the message It's like how a bouncer can get a read on someone wanting in simply by the time they show up (too early, maybe), the look of desperation in their eyes, and the knock-off handbag they're carrying...

The greatest thing about this filter is that you can train it as you want. When you boot up Outlook for the first time, the protection level is set to Low but you can go in and change it. But also, you have the opportunity to add things to the list of things that the filter should be looking for. You can add to the:

So listen: Sometimes we all need a little help keeping things safe and irritant-free. I'm not telling you to hire a battalion of armed guards or treat every piece of mail with suspicion or anxiety. If you have Outlook, you have a built-in bouncer, and this guy is willing to go the distance and ferret out the junk in your life.
I find the junk email filter is becoming the worst offender. Some sites I have marked more than 25 times but the filer still marks them as junk and puts them in the Junk folder. It is hard work trying to stop the junk filter junking mail you want, particularly if it is from a major or a retailer e.g. ebay, Argos etc.
