Hello, everyone.

Spam continues to be problem #1. Spam filters are not coping - both inside Outlook client and on Outlook.com servers. I decided to use rules for deleting the spam messages and I created 3 rules - each looking for trigger words in the body, subject and sender's address. I am on experimental stage right now, so the ultimate action is to move messages matching the trigger words to Deleted Items folder and applying a color category to them so that I can see that a message was really deleted by a rule. When the experimental phase is over I can probably change the ultimate action to Delete Permanently so I would not even know that a junk message came by.

As it is easy to imagine there are many cases when rules delete the wrong messages, those which are good and which I need to see and read. I want to ask the forum members if you know of any tools which can be used to analyze rule behavior and find out why a specific message got processed by the rule? Any log analysis tools or add-on that could do that? If I knew why exactly a rule got triggered I would be able to tune the rule better.

Thank you in advance for any advice
