Ask a Nerd: Reducing Spam and Identifying Suspicious Emails
Microsoft Office has several great tips for making your email more efficient and secure. 
 
If you regularly get spam mail from a specific source, the next time you get one, mark it as “junk” using Office’s Junk Mail option. This feature will move future emails from the sender to your junk mail folder.
 
And the best way to avoid accidentally interacting with a suspicious email is to never click on links, reply to emails, or download attachments from anyone who isn’t already a trusted contact. If you get an email from a large company and you wish to use its information, it is always better to go to that company’s website directly, without clicking on any links in any emails from them.
