How to Move Email from Junk to Inbox in Mail for Mac

Junk filter mistakenly flags even regular emails? No problem. It's easy to move your emails from junk to your inbox in the Mail app on your Mac.

I use the “Junk filter” in the Mail app for macOS to keep my mailbox organized and keep the spam emails away. On most occasions, the junk email filtering feature does a reliable job of marking the unwanted messages. However, at times it erroneously marks even the regular messages. In that case, I have to move email from Junk to inbox in the Mail app for Mac.

Luckily, transferring emails from junk to inbox is hassle-free. Besides, you can easily recover both individual and bulk emails. Let me show you how it’s done!
