Power Automate Method (Requires School or Work Account)

We’ve heard that for some users Outlook does not honor a rule created in the above manner. In such cases, there is another way to disable the server junk filter using Power Automate:

  1. Log into Microsoft Flow.

  2. Click on Connectors at the left, then Outlook.com (not Office 365 Outlook).
