    Outlook Live (Hotmail) SPAM filtering


    Over the weekend either Microsoft changed something or they have a problem with SPAM filtering. I had my filters set for maximum junk mail filtering and its been working OK for years. Now most of the junk mail is showing up in my inbox. I haven't changed any settings.

    :)

  2. Outlook spam filter reset

    Hi Freddrick

    Followed the step above - no faults found.

    I will wait until the next time windows installs an update and see if the outlook spam filter is defaulting back to "none" or if it stays on my custom setting of "low".

    Regards.

    hotmail is now outlook

    Hotmail users can now upgrade to outlook layout.It looks like windows 8 menus. It's very fast now using outlook over the previous layout.


    look in your hotmail/live for this email. Outlook.co​m Team "You've changed. Shouldn't your inbox?"‏

    you can upgrade from within and create new alias's too.

    Outlook spam filter reset

    Hi Freddrick

    Answers to your questions:

    • This resetting of the spam filter happens when Windows 10 does its automatic updating - I have no input into these updates installing, it is all Windows 10. It happens with every update Windows does where it automatically restarts my computer.
    • All updates have always successfully installed
    • I have received no error messages.
    • No changes to my computer or Outlook. This resetting of the spam filter has occurred from the first time windows did an auto update install and restarted my computer and repeats every time a new update is installed and PC restarted.
    Regards
