Hotmail Junk/Spam filter - Doesn't work - how to disable?

Many people have found Hotmail continually puts legit email in the Spam  
folder.  Is there any way of disabling this non-helping feature?  You can  
set it to low - but of course that is useless.

Or maybe there is a way of forwarding your Spam folder to your Spam folder  
in your POP3 email program?  That would work ok.  Once you use an email  
program you don't want to have to log in to Hotmail to check your  
messages.  That's the whole point of using an email program.  To get away  
 from slow, ponderous, awkward webmail.  To make matters even worse  
Microsoft deletes the spam after 10 days.  Even if you only get a few a  
week.  How utterly stupid is that?  If you get hundreds a week you  
obviously have a spam problem.  But say 5?  Makes no sense.

In the web UI..
Add the sender to your contacts.
Do not safe list a contact

After the above, if the web UI Junk filter is still to low and mail goes to the Junk folder, the content(and/or Links) in the message are the cause.

end up in Junk.
Anyway I need a solution to turn it off completely.  I have no idea who is  
going to email me so I can't add them to contacts.  I'm using it for  
advertising.

Maybe, just maybe, its the idiots that designed the program!  If something  
doesn't work the first remedy is to turn it off.  Then work on its  
repair.  Not Microsoft.  Imagine if they designed planes!  "Good morning  
everybody. We have engines that haven't been assembled properly but we're  
going to take off irregardless.  Time is money!"

Does anybody know if there is a way of having your POP email program pull  
in the Junk folder of Hotmail?  That wouldn't be so bad because you could  
then see it instantly.

At this stage..wysiwyg.
If safe senders end up in Junk, as noted, content is the most likely cause.
Only the sender with help from the recipient can address that issue.

Send feedback.
If doing so, you might wish to change your approach if expecting anyone to listen.
Until then, you'll have to live with your problem or find an alternative client.

is it possible to edit a record with the event procedure of a control on a form that is completely seperate from the source of the record if the source of the record is not open? for example, I have a form with only a textbox where I scan a barcode (Tracking number). On enter it should filter another form, which is not open, for that tracking number. I was thinking about making the form a subform in the form where I scan the barcode, but if I can do it without having to open the form I would rather do that. -- Message posted via AccessMonster.com http://www.accessmonster.com/Uwe/Forums.asp...

Does Outlook's junk filter open closed ports?
I am putting a router on my cable connection for a computer running XP Home. I have read that many 3rd party mail filters keep a port open because they filter the e-mail before it gets to your computer. Is this also true of Outlook 2000's filters? If so, can anybody recommend how to prevent it happening with outlook's built in filters or reccomend a 3rd part filtering program? No, Outlook 2000 filters are rules based. -- Robert Sparnaaij [MVP-Outlook] www.howto-outlook.com Tips of the month: -Backup and Restore -Create an Office XP CD slipstreamed with Service Pack 3 ----- "...
