When Used With Exchange Server 2013 Outlook Suffers From A Junk Email Problem

The average Outlook user is familiar with many different Outlook problems. Of all these, the problem regarding the failure of the junk email filter could be the most annoying. These emails were not supposed to be stored in your Outlook Inbox. However, your inbox would be filled with such messages because of some of error.
This would make it difficult for you to go through the other important messages in the folder. You would have to manually go through each and every message and delete the ones that are spam or junk mail messages. In some cases, such messages would be so many in number as to make your task even more frustrating.

Dealing with the failure of the Junk Email Filter in Microsoft Outlook

Recently, such errors have been reported more with those users who are using the Exchange Server 2013 along with the Outlook mail client. The same is the case with Exchange Online service. Microsoft recently made an announcement that this failure of the junk email filters in the Exchange Server has to do with some changes they have made in the filtering system.
Obviously, Microsoft’s attempts to make the filtering system more efficient have backfired, and resulted in these Outlook problems. Microsoft will continue to tweak these filters until they have figured out the optimal level which takes care of all the spam and junk mail in your inbox.
Meanwhile, you have to take some measures to ensure that your Outlook Inbox is not flooded with spam messages. You need to use some of the Outlook settings to good effect to achieve this. For example, there is the Outlook Safe Senders list, which allows you to prepare a list of email addresses from which you would constantly receive many work-related emails.
By classifying these email addresses as safe, you make sure that the messages from them are directed towards the Outlook Inbox, rather than the Junk or Spam folder. Another option is to stop the faulty junk email filtering system. Such a filter that wrongly sends your important mails to the junk folder is better left disabled. This means you would have to manually go through all the messages. If you normally do not get that many spam messages, then this is good option.
Also, visit the official Microsoft Outlook support website to see if Microsoft has released a fix for this problem.
