For Microsoft Outlook 2010, you apply an MSP file created using the Office Customization Tool, where you have set the Junk E-mail protection level to No protection; however, Outlook shows the level of junk e-mail protection as Low rather than No Automatic Filtering.
The behavior occurs because the MSP file created using the method in the Symptoms section incorrectly sets the following registry value:
This can be accomplished manually, via a .reg file, or login script.
Option 2: Office 2010 is not yet installed
Ensure that the built-in option for setting the JunkMailProtection value via the Office Customization Tool is not configured, and instead apply the correct JunkMailProtection value as an ad hoc registry entry in the OCT, using the following steps:
1) In the Office Customization Tool, Navigate to the Features section and expand Modify user settings 2) Select Microsoft Outlook 2010 3) Navigate to Outlook Options then to Preferences and then to Junk E-mail 4) Change the Junk e-mail protection level setting under Modify User Settings to Not Configured 5) In the navigation pane of the OCT, under the Additional content section, select Add registry entries, and then click Add. 6) In the Add/Modify Registry Entry dialog box, specify the following settings, and then click OK:
Root: HKEY_CURRENT_USER Data type: REG_DWORD Key: Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Options\Mail Value name: JunkMailProtection Value data: 0xFFFFFFFF
The following figure displays these changes made in the Add/Modify Registry Entry dialog box:
Steps to reproduce the issue:
1) Start the Office Customization Tool 2) Navigate to the Features section and expand Modify user settings 3) Select Microsoft Outlook 2010 4) Navigate to Outlook Options then to Preferences and then to Junk E-mail 5) Set the Junk E-mail protection level as Enabled and under Select level select No protection
After applying the resulting MSP file, the JunkMailProtection value will be set to 0x7fffffff and Microsoft Outlook will report the junk mail setting as Low rather than No Automatic Filtering.
