Default Why are my Junk options shown as slashed off

I find it absolutely over-the-top annoying that dealing with spam emails and supposed blocking attempts that keep failing. And now after many many hours wasted screwing around with various tweaks and settings, I thought I had the problem solved...

I had set my junk folder options to auto archive anything in the junk folder after one day with permanently delete selected... an annoying work-around but it was working fine. When a new junk email arrived in my inbox, I would simply right click it and select Junk /block sender, and vola, it would move to my junk folder as it should. It was a little sporadic on the timing of permanent deleting, but ok.

Now for some annoying /unknown reason, I'm getting a bunch of new crap in my inbox and my junk mail options are circle-slashed out and I've wasted another round of hours trying to figure out why and how to get things to work back the way they were. My questions are...

1. How can I re-enable my junk options ?
2. Is there a way of setting Outlook back to a previous version? As I don't want my basic features and settings to change each time there is an update.



btw... I'm on Microsoft® Outlook® 2021 MSO (Version 2309 Build 16.0.16827.20166) 64-bit


thanks, Joe

The Junk options are not shown as slashed off, unless you've attached the wrong image. That is the standard icon for junk options which represents blocking the sender.

Sorry, I just posted a different response, then changed it after I went back into outlook and tried to see if it worked and it did, on a newly rec'd junk message, but I have had it where it did not respond on some messages. Thanks for your reply.
