If you use Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2007 and junk email filtering doesn't seem to be working, go to Tools. Options, Junk Email options and verify that your address is not on the Safe Sender or Safe Recipient list. These two lists override the Blocked Sender list and the junk mail filter.
In Outlook 2010 and up, expand the Junk button the ribbon, then select Junk E-Mail Options to view the Safe and Blocked Senders lists.
If you have more than one account configured in Outlook 2010 and newer, each account will have it's own junk email settings.
If you will never send email to yourself, add your address to the blocked senders list. This prevents spammers from faking you as the sender to send you spam.
