How Can I Avoid Porn Previews?

The only thing worse than spam is sexually explicit spam. There are things you just can’t unsee and a reader wants to know how to avoid them. “I start up my computer, go to Outlook.com mail and whatever is there that is porno ( by title or description ) , I delete it or better yet I Block it and then go on to the next one after locking in the confirmation to block.  Most of the stuff is Junk Mail and from overseas.  It’s like getting Viagra e-mails and you can’t seem to stop those either.”

Fortunately, most of this type of spam gets filtered out and you can avoid it just by staying out of the junk folder unless there’s something you need that keeps getting filtered there.

But here’s how you can avoid having to catch a glimpse of things you’d rather not see. Just turn off the preview pane in Outlook.com.  Click the gear in the upper right of the page and under Reading Pane, select Off.

That should prevent any unwanted sneak peeks. Make sure you mark any unwanted messages that make it through to your regular inbox as junk or spam.
