Manage Junk Filters

The junk filter captures messages that might be junk. You can increase the setting for more stringent filtering, but more valid messages might be captured. With a more aggressive setting, check your quarantine frequently.

Please note: Increasing a category filter level is more likely to quarantine valid messages than raising the overall junk email filter. After increasing any filter level, visit Message Center regularly over the next few days to verify no valid messages are quarantined.
