Yes, but you must use 2 separate profiles and decide which you'll run every time Outlook is starting

Dear Experts,
Thank you for responding. I am simply having a difficult time deciding which format to utilize for my individual situation.
At present I have one address that is only given to companies that I believe will not share my email address. This address includes my Microsoft account, registration for Adobe, Corel and other companies that I have purchase software from. Another email is for general correspondence. My computer situation is as follows: One workstation in my office, One laptop workstation at home, One laptop workstation that I take on trips and my Android cellphone. Up until last year I utilized only POP3 accounts and had many email addresses. As each email address became "found" by spammers I would simply delete it and have an auto responder advise the sender to contact me by telephone or Postal mail. If the person did not know my telephone number or my street address then it would be probably someone that I did not want to speak to anyway, so no big loss. That got rather complicated with the necessity of coordinating all the emails to sync between my phone and my computers. At present I am utilizing only two IMAP accounts. I am trying to formulate a good system for dealing with the spam yet maintain good access both ways. I definitely wish to utilize Outlook 2016 as my email program rather than gmail or similar. I am open to suggestions as to how to best handle the spam and still retain "safe" emails such as the one I use for Microsoft. I am more than open to any suggestions to those that have solved the spam difficulty.


I will use the provided information to try to make a decision on my own as to how to configure things. If there are suggestions then great! If not I will close this question in a day or two. Thanks so much for your Expert assistance. I appreciate it!!
