I'm wondering now if it's got something to do with the links in each email being different, despite being from the same sender. Most links in emails these days, especially if from marketing material, are very long and customised per user to track clicks etc....

It literally could be anything. Literally
With cloud providers spam filters you'll never know and it can be near impossible to resolve
It can even be the email signature causing email to go to spam : seen it

 

Start by adding senders to you safe senders white list. That doesnt allways help though .
Also, you wont be seeing the legit email that simply gets blocked and never makes it to the spam filter (or inbox)

 

People expect zero spam in their inbox ,and bitch and moan about single spams making it through. Well this is the result of that , all too aggressive spam filters.

A bit of history...

 

A few years ago, Microsoft added 'spam protection' to Outlook.com as an option.

 

Many people hated it and turned off 'spam protection'.

 

So, Microsoft removed the option to turn it off.

 

So, people used a simple rule to send all incoming email directly to the inbox and bypass the filter.

 

Of course, Microsoft wouldn't be undone.

 

They just now randomly send stuff to your junk folder.

We also use outlook.com as our main email address and find random emails go straight to junk. Tried setting rules for a while, but gave up as it doesn't work reliably. Just log into outlook webmail every couple of days to shift emails to the inbox.

 

Would prefer no spam/junk filter at all on outlook.com as we use Mailwasher to screen emails before downloading with Outlook 2010.

Today's victim, from "Spark Customer Experience Team", an "Important update about your privacy". Read it Thursday afternoon, but by Friday morning it was in the junk folder.

Funnily enough, this email doesn't get sent to Junk and appears straight in my inbox. And it's not the first or third time this BNZ email gets through!
