Microsoft Junk E-mail Reporting Add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook v2.0 was recently made available to download. This add-in is available for Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.
The Junk E-mail Reporting Tool lets you directly report junk e-mail to Microsoft and its affiliates for analysis to help us improve the effectiveness of our junk e-mail filtering technologies.
The Junk E-mail Reporting Tool submits e-mail to Microsoft when you explicitly choose to do so. If you receive a junk e-mail and want to report it to us for analysis, first select the e-mail in Outlook and then click the Report Junk e-mail button on your tool bar. You will see a pop-up window asking whether you want to report the selected e-mail to Microsoft and its affiliates. When you click “Yes” to confirm that you’d like to report the selected e-mail as junk e-mail, the junk e-mail will be sent to Microsoft for analysis to help us improve the effectiveness of our junk e-mail filtering technologies.
