How to Delete and Mute a Conversation in Outlook?

Outlook can automatically delete new emails in a conversation you wish to ignore.

An Easier Inbox with One Click

So many conversations in the hallway, so much talk in the cafeteria; how much is relevant to you?

If your inbox is such a hallway cafeteria, Outlook can help you tune out the messages that you surely will note need. For any conversation irrelevant to you, you can, in one fell swoop, delete all messages in the thread and have Outlook move future messages in the conversation to the Deleted Items folder, too.

Mute a Conversation in Outlook

To delete a conversation and prevent future messages in a thread from appearing in your Outlook inbox:

  1. Open a message in the conversation you want to ignore.
  2. Go to the Home tab in the main Outlook window’s ribbon.
  3. Click Ignore Conversation (or Ignore) in the Delete area.
    • You can also press Ctrl-Del instead of using the ribbon.
  4. Click OK if you are prompted to confirm your action.
  5. Click Ignore Conversation if you are prompted again.

Unmute a Conversation in Outlook

To recover a conversation from the Deleted Items folder and make sure future messages in the thread do appear in your Outlook inbox:

  1. Open the Deleted Items folder.
  2. Open a message that belongs to the conversation you want to recover.
  3. Go to the Home tab in the main Outlook window’s ribbon.
  4. Click Ignore Conversation (or Ignore) in the Delete area.
  5. Now click Stop Ignoring Conversation if you are prompted.

Note that unmuting a conversation will recover all messages in the Deleted Itemsfolder that belong to the thread—including those Outlook may have ​cleaned uppreviously.

You can streamline the conversation again in your inbox, of course.
