Every Tuesday morning, I find TidBITS in the “Junk” folder. Same thing with a variety of emails I suscribe to. Every time, I tell Outlook “not Junk”. Doesn’t matter, the next email from that sender is in the Junk folder. But genuine spam I get from the same place every day (like BackerUpdate)? no matter how often I flag it as junk, it still shows up in my inbox. Is it me or is machine learning vastly overrated?
Looks like Outlook doesn’t do any client-side spam filtering, and explicitly says that moving messages to Junk does nothing for the future.
I strongly recommend you get @mjtsai’s SpamSieve.
Thanks Adam, I will definitely take a long hard look at this.
