When you migrate or move your mailbox to Office 365 or to an on-premise Exchange Server 2010 server, you experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Junk E-Mail settings deployed by using Group Policy either fail to run or fail to take effect. These settings include Safe and Blocked Sender Lists and the Outlook Junk E-Mail filtering enabled/disabled setting.
- When you use Outlook to add an email address to the Blocked or Safe Senders Lists, the address is either not displayed in the list or it is displayed in the list, but never synchronized to the Exchange mailbox.
- Messages are unexpectedly marked as junk email.
- Messages fail to be marked as junk email.
- You notice differences between the Safe Senders List displayed in Outlook and Safe Senders as displayed in Outlook Web App (OWA).
This specific issue is present only after a mailbox is moved to an Exchange Server 2010 database. This should not be confused with other junk email issues.
The Junk Email rule is damaged or was generated incorrectly when migrated to an Exchange Server 2010 mailbox.
To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup before you move or migrate a mailbox:
Description of Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 2
This update rollup will not resolve this issue if you apply the update after you move or migrate a mailbox.
To work around this issue, there are multiple options.

You can compare what you see in the Outlook junk e-mail user interface (UI) against the Text string value of the earlierMAPI prop. This may help you determine whether the values that are shown in Outlook and those that were synchronized with the server are mismatched.
Additionally, some Safe and Blocked Senders information may be stored in the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\<PROFILE>\<GUID>
The following registry values correspond to the following junk e-mail lists:
