Midwestern State University employs several layers of anti-spam protection. This article provides guidance on how to troubleshoot issues where legitimate messages may have been mis-identified as SPAM in Outlook.

Outlook Junk-Mail Filter
Outlook has a built-in junk email filter that is enabled by default and automatically moves messages it determines to be junk mail from your inbox to the Junk Email folder. The out-of-the-box configuration occasionally misidentifies legitimate mail as spam, and as such, this is often the cause of the problem.

How to determine if a legitimate message was detected as spam

  1. Click the Junk E-Mail folder in the Navigation Pane.
  2. Messages recently identified as spam by Outlook will be listed in the middle pane.
  3. If the message in question is in this list, then Outlook's junk mail filter is the culprit. To restore this message to your inbox,
    • Right-click the message and from the context menu, select Junk > Not Junk.
    • By default, Outlook will move this message to your inbox. You will have the option to mark all future messages from that sender as trusted.
