Ever accidentally block a sender in your e-mail? It happened to Sharleen who writes: “I was wondering if you could explain how to unblock an email. I think I might have accidently ¬†asked my hotmail to block an email and I want to receive it.”

Fortunately this is an easy issue to solve. Go to your Outlook.com inbox and choose the little gear and the top. Then select Options.

You’ll switch to a screen with a bunch of choices.

outlook-options

Under Preventing junk email, choose Safe and blocked senders.

outlook-safe-blocked

Here you can add safe senders and mailing lists and see a list of blocked senders. Click Blocked senders.

Here you can either type in a name to add to the list.

 

outlook-blocked-senders-add

Or click on a name already on the list and choose remove to remove it.
