Ignore a Conversation - Outlook Desktop


You have the ability to keep unwanted conversations or emails out of your Inbox by using the Ignore feature in Outlook. Ignoring a conversation automatically removes the message from your Inbox and puts it into your Deleted Items folder.

A Conversation is a thread of email responses with the same Subject. Ignoring conversations in Outlook will also remove the replies/responses by others that may be on the email thread.

This article will walk you through how to use the Ignore feature in the Outlook Desktop version.
