    So we know Outlook has this internal filtering system that sends junk mail to Junk folder even when filtering option is turned off.
    I'm wondering if there's a way to look at or "hack" it. Using VBA or something? I want to keep some emails from being labeled as Phishing or junk by the internal filter, since I can't really do wildcards in adding Safe Sender list.

    Outlook doesn't move to the junk filter if the filter is off (save for the blocked sender list), but outlook.com, office 365, many Exchange servers do - some pop and imap servers might too. You can completely disable it though - see How to Disable Outlook's Junk Email Filter

    If outlook moved the message, it will tell you - in outlook.com/office 365, you can look in the junk folder in web access to see similar information. See What Moved a Message to the Junk E-mail Folder? for more information.

    The above is the limit to your ability to hack it - you can put domains on the safe list. You can use VBA to move messages out of the junk folder automatically as they are added it to, but in most cases, doing it manually and marking the mail as not junk would be better as it will add the addresses to the safe list.
