Disable outlook 2010 junk mail through registry RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are having an issue where some mail is being unintentionally sent to junk. Adding the name to the white list did not fix the problem. I would like to disable junk mail through the registry for outlook 2010. Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    To disable the junk mail settings in Outlook 2010, we need to add the DisableAntiSpam DWORD in the following registry key:

    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\office\14.0\outlook.

    Add the DisableAntiSpam DWORD, set its value to 1.

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.

  • Hi,

    As per the information and details provided by you, to disable Outlook 2010 junk mail through the registry, please follow these steps: -

    For those users, want to disable Outlook’s junk email filter, there is a registry key that will disable the junk email filter in Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013. This key will completely disable the junk filter, including the Blocked list, and disable the junk email button. It will not affect the third party spam filters.

    When the registry key is set, the junk button will be grayed out. To disable the filter, browse to the registry key and add the Disable Anti Spam DWORD, setting it to a value of 1.

    If you use Outlook 2010, the key is: -

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\outlook Word: DisableAntiSpam

    Value: 1 (Hex)

    The setting will disable globally the junk mail filter for the logged in user.

    If you still want to use the feature in PST Outlook profile, enable the option again or remove the registry option.

    I hope this information will be helpful for you.

    Thanks and regards
