    My feedback rebates are going to the JUNK folder! WHY? I missed my 50% rebate because of this. This is my money. Why does Microsoft decide for me what I should and should not see BEFORE I could make that decision? If it's spam, I will mark it as spam. Don't worry about me. I'm not 5, you know. Leave my stuff alone! Especially feedback rebates. There are people who share their email with the wide world and then complain about spam. Those idiots deserve that. NO ONE will send you spam if you're diligent with whom you share your email. What happens is, because of people like this, Microsoft writes crappy spam filters that hurt the rest of us. I provide my email to companies I trust, so they send me stuff I need. It is truly bewildering to me why it goes to my junk folder. My other Hotmail account was missing my order and delivery info all the time as well. Same story. Gmail never does it. Ever. I buy something and provide Gmail address, I get my rebates and delivery tracking info right away. I provide hotmail or outlook account, it's in JUNK all the time! I click "not junk" and sure enough, the next rebate is in Junk AGAIN! Seriously, your code is broken. Terribly disappointed.

      Wow, just noticed.. Microsoft's own "Welcome to Outlook" email was sent to Spam folder. LMAO! Their OWN EMAIL! What a shame. What a pathetic company it has become. It filters its own notifications as spam. Yeah...

        Yep, does that to me too, I have added my contacts, saved them as safe and as soon as anyone sends more than 2 emails a day they are treated as spam. I have been in contact with the idiots from microsoft and going around in circles, they do not read my emails properly and either give me a totally unrelated suggestion or just repeat the ones they have given me previously. If someone finds an answer to this please let me know

    I receive tons of junk mail in the junk mail folder that I have to delete all the time. Where did all this junk mail come from and why?? What is the problem with this shit outlook mail, when it was hotmail I receive almost no junk. I have email account with yahoo and I receive very little junk and I use that account every day. This shitty outlook account I use it not often but when I use it I see hundreds of junk mail. I see there is no way to just block the shit forever and have the junk box empty all the time, or at least have the outlook clean the shit every day. I may delete my account because it is annoying and stinks.

      That is because Yahoo just deletes it. Which is bad for websites trying to communicate with you.
