6. How to disable Outlook's junk email filtering?to top

Some users have reported that Outlook's inbuilt spam/junk email filter sends too much legitimate email to the Junk Email folder. As Sensical.net runs a very advanced Spam filtering service already, you may wish to disable Outlook's inbuilt filter.

In Outlook 2010 this can be done as follows: Whilst in your Inbox, from the Ribbon at the top of Outlook click Junk (to the left of the Delete button). Select Junk Email Options from the drop down. On the Options tab select No Automatic Filtering. Click OK.

Please note that as this is a client setting, you will need to repeat this on each separate copy of Outlook you use.
