I am currently receiving up to 10 emails daily offering sex etc. in my Microsoft Outlook inbox folder I have created rules that send the emails to junk and then delete folders but different ones arrive every day. I have googled the subject and I am not the only one having this problem. Any advice please on how to stop this happening. I never open the email or contents.

When you see them in your inbox, check the box to the left of them (one at a time) and then click your "spam" icon. Afterwards, they should be immediately recognized as "spam" and discarded by your system.

@woodartisan55  Thank you for helping!

@lcpmhall  Thank you for asking your question on this community! For blocking the spam mail you received in Microsoft Outlook, as @woodartisan55 mentioned, you can use the Antispam feature of your Outlook, or you can use the Antispam Toolbar of Trend Micro Security. Here's a reference doc for the detailed steps:
Using the Antispam Toolbar of Trend Micro Security - see "Activating The Antispam Toolbar" section to enable this tool and see other section for further settings

Hope this helps!
