What is the best way to delete unwanted e mail. I scrolled to the unwanted e mail in the in box and it was highlighted and then pressed delete, then went to the folder deleted items and deleted.
I did not know the sender and was suprised it did not go to the junk email.
Is this the way it should be done.
Managing your email inbox is much the same as managing your snail-mail mailbox. Keep what you want or need, and toss the rest in the trash.
All email providers now have spam filters, but they are not perfect. They sometimes let junk through and mark 'good' mail as spam. The better ones can be taught to work more the way you want.
Email programs have features to make managing your inbox more efficient, but it is still up to you to monitor your folders. You need to make sure legitimate emails are not in your junk mail folder. Accept the fact that junk will still make it to your inbox.
You can create filters and rules to route emails directly into folders or send them directly to the trash. The process varies depending on the email program you use.
