Monitoring Your Blocked Senders List

Reports of important emails gone missing have been increasing recently. In almost all cases the issue has been resolved by reviewing the user’s Blocked Senders list and removing any rules that are blocking legitimate senders. There are a number of reasons why someone may have been mistakenly added to a block senders list, but fortunately the fix is quick and painless, so long as you remember to check your list occasionally. (NOTE: It may also be a good idea to turn off your Focused inbox, if it’s active, by following the instructions in this post.)
