What is the difference between spam and blocking in Outlook?
Junk emails are spam in your inbox, and they can be annoying; most often (depending on the spam protection level) they are moved to the spam folders. The Block feature prevents items sent by the sender, or the sender’s domain, or group or mailing list from being marked as junk.

How do I know if it’s spam?
If you want to know if an email is spam, look at the sender’s email address, look at the information requested by the sender, look at the salutation of the message and look at the content of the email and its messages.
