Outlook via webbrowser, is there a way to disable the spamfilter (Junkfilter) ?
Junkfilter isn't really working well: regularly normal email end up there, whilst I am waiting for a reply.
When I don't get a reply from really normal mailaddresses, I know, I should check the spambox.
Really frustrating.

I don't see a way to disable it.

Thanks! Bad luck. Indeed options are limited. There isn't even an option to have all mail arriving in the junk folder passed on to a different mail address.
So, I received mails from 3 different persons within the same domain, each got stuck in the junkfolder, suffering a delay.
added the domain now, everything after the -at- sign.
Yes, there is a 22 page conversion on https://goo.gl/nGCGY1
with many frustrated people. I really wonder whether at all Microsoft is looking into these forums.
Probably not, or probably only the words from experts (MVPs, etc) may carry some weight.
"premium" subscribers (people with an outlook.com account linked to an Office 365 consumer subscription) have "improved" filtering (if its not rolled out to everyone now, it soon will be). I'm not sure if that will help or make it worse... on my business account, i had to make some changes because they were rejecting a lot of mail as spam that wasn't spam, so its definitely overzealous.

on a side note, the broken safe/blocked lists in Outlook were fixed in a recent update.
Thanks Diane.
As for on my pc, with Office 2016, I am using a 3rd party tool, named Mailwasher.
Am using it over 15 years now and it is doing an outstanding job. Using spamcop.net and sbl-xbl.spamhouse.org
Never see any spam landing in Outlook. As a matter of fact, in case of doubt, I can do a preview of the mail and decide whether or not to delete it, mark as friend/good, whatever.

Anyway.. thanks again.
Yeah, at this point, a good 3rd party filter is better and programs like mailwasher are better than spam filters built into antivirus utilities.
