I received an email today that was a blatant attempt at defrauding me - rather like the fake UK TV Licence email that hit thousands is early May this year. So I blocked it.

My email address is not in the typical joe.bloggsAT(eg)outlook.com - to avoid spammers I changed it to a phonetic email address. So Mr Blogg' email address would now be jaybeeAToutlook.com. It works - I've gone from hundreds of spam email a month to one or two.

What bothers me is that I've just received another email today that was a blatant attempt at defrauding me.

I wanted to check the address that I'd blocked to compare the real address but I can't find it anywhere.

Does outlook.com store blocked emails/email addresses? If so, how can I find it please?

PS Diane - changing one's email address to a phonetic version really does stop spam emails (apart from these two fraud ones!) and I would strongly commend it to all the members here.

Open Outlook.com's settings: Settings (gear icon) > View all Outlook settings > Junk Mail - blocked addresses will be there.

I don't know if its so much the phonic spelling (although it can help with dictionary attacks) - but it definitely helps if you don't use the address publicly. You can create aliases in outlook.com and use them publicly, then delete them if you get too much spam.

Thanks Linda - I can block emails but I need to find where outlook stores them.

Hello Diane. I've gone into my main Settings (where eg I would check WUs) but there's no Junk Mail setting there.
I have Windows Feature Update v1903 18362.239 10thJuly 2019 .

And I've just had another email trying to defraud me, so you can understand why I'm keen to find the first one, the one that's disappeared.

Are you looking in Windows Settings or Outlook.com's Settings? This would be in Outlook.com's setting, even if you use the Windows 10 mail app or Outlook desktop - the blocked list syncs to the server.

I wonder if it was deleted? If its not in the Deleted folder or recovery folder there is Office addin called Email Recovery that can recover mail that is waiting for Exchange to purge it.
