After a hard drive crash I re-installed windows 7 and Windows Live Mail. Now the Junk Mail filters don't work. No matter how many times I flag a message as junk it still comes through to my inbox. Before the crash a dialog box would appear telling me there was junk mail, then when I clicked on the button all the junk mail was pulled from the inbox and into the junk folder. None of that happens anymore. What can I do to avoid having to go through 60 or 70 emails every day?

Is there a way to completely reset Junk Mail filtering and the Blocked Senders list in Office for Mac 2011?


I have Windows 8 and use Windows Live 2012 and have it set up with IMAP.  After setting up the account, I was presented with four Sent Folders, three Deleted Folders and three Junk folders. 

Deleted Folders are named Deleted, Deleted Messages and Deleted Items.  Sent Folders are named Sent, Sent Items, Sent Messages and SentMail (no space between words).  Junk Folders are named Junk, Junk E-mail and Junk Mail. 

Deleted, Sent and Junk mail are not duplicated and sent to all folders.  They are sent to one of the other. 

When I want to find a sent or deleted email, it is a nightmare.  The Sent Items/messages/sentmail folders tells date/subject/from (me, of course) but not the receipient which makes it nearly impossible to search for a sent email.   

I have an iphone and the same folders are also on my phone.  Another thing I find strange is that I have a folder in my Windows Live that is named Notes.  I did  not set up this folder, it just appeared when I created the IMAP account.   The Notes in this folder are the exact same as the notes I created in my iPhone (which has nothing to do with email) as reminders to myself.  I don't have a problem with them being in my Windows Live but wonder why and how this folder was put there.  It all is just so strange.

Thank you for any help you may be able to give to me.  (I put this post under Sending and Receiving Email because there was no other selection that described my question.)

I have Outlook 2011 for Mac and use a ( address.  Though MOST of the junk mail comes through to my junk mail folder on my mac, some never does.  That means I have to keep checking for some junk mail that never reaches my computer.  Does this mean OTHER mail never comes through?  It seems that all the mail in my online inbox appears on my mac's Outlook 2011 inbox.  Using 10.7.5 Lion if that's relevant. 

Windows Live Mail marks Junk Mail messages flagged as NOT Junk Mail as READ when they have NOT and have only been marked as Not Junk 

this makes it difficult to see what has NOT been read when you go into your folder

Microsoft need to review their junk mail options, including marking messages/emails as containing viruses - rather than just 'junk mail' or block sender, etc

but the main issue is it marking it as read when you are ONLY marking it as not junk 

Hi guys,

I've posted this question before, but the person assisting me seems to have fallen off the planet.

I'm having an issue in Windows Live Mail where I get a notification when junk mail arrives. Even if the mail is instantly moved straight into my junk mail folder, I get the new email notification and the new mail icon appears on the program bar.

Is someone able to let me know how I can fix this issue? It's extremely annoying.

The junk mail security options in my WLM don't seem to be working.  None of the options result in junk mail in the junk mail folder.
Do I have another indicator set incorrectly?
My Essentials Mail in Windows 8 does not automatically send mail to the junk folder from senders whom I have over and over sent to the junk mail folder.  Any help will be appreciated. I get advertisements daily from about 20 sources and it is driving me nuts.

Can somebody help me? My Hotmail account is sending junk mail to my contacts. I have changed my password and my security question but that's not seemed to have worked. Can somebody fix the problem at the Hotmail end?
