  1. Open Outlook:
    • Open your Outlook Mail account.
  2. Go to the Inbox:
    • Navigate to your Inbox or the folder where you have received emails from the contact you want to block.
  3. Find an Email from the Contact:
    • Locate an email from the contact you want to block.
  4. Right-Click on the Email:
    • Right-click on the email to open a contextual menu.
  5. Select “Junk”:
    • Hover over the “Junk” option in the contextual menu.
  6. Choose “Block Sender”:
    • In the “Junk” submenu, select “Block Sender.” This action will move the email to the Junk Email folder and add the sender to your blocked list.

Alternatively:

  1. Open the Email:
    • Open the email from the contact you want to block.
  2. Click on “Junk”:
