There is no way to disable the Outlook Junk E-mail filter. Even if you add the DisableAntiSpam value to the registry with a value of one, which grays out all Junk E-mail options in Outlook, mail will STILL be delivered to Junk E-mail. Even the Office 365 and Microsoft Office support teams and they say it cannot be disabled. This article needs to state that it will not completely disable Junk E-mail to be accurate.
