Look for a Junk E-mail folder in
your Outlook folder list (There should be one in Outlook 2002 or later).

Folder and create a folder inside the Inbox titled
Junk E-mail (note the exact spelling).

Verify that two rules have been imported into Outlook (X-eMail2Pop-status /
X-Spam-Flag). They should be both checked.
If the box beside the X-Spam-Flag rule is not checked, check the box,
click the blue specified word in
the big white box under Rule Description, and select the Junk
E-mail folder. If there is not a Junk E-mail folder, create one inside
the Inbox by clicking New .
If you use your own additional Outlook rules, the eMail2Pop rules must process
first. Use the Move Up (Up Arrow)
button to move the two rules to the top of the list.
Click Finish to close the Rules Wizard, and then OK to
close the Rules and Alerts window
