Does the Windows 8 Mail App include an integrated spam filter?

Does the Windows 8 Mail App include an integrated spam filter?  I have read contradictory answers to this question so, just looking for confirmation one way or another.  I would prefer to configure (if possible) the Mail App to not use its own integrated spam filter if such a filter even exists.  I only want messages to be flagged as spam/junk by my mail server.

Hi MattMinyard,

Thank you for posting in the Microsoft Community. All the settings are done through the main email page not in the app. Example if you are using Hotmail you may go to Hotmail on the web and set up or configure the spam filter there and whatever you set there will carry over to the Mail app.

You may have a look at the link for more information on mail app:

“Mail: Frequently asked questions”

“Email & communication”

“How to manage notifications for Mail, Calendar, People, and Messaging”

Hope the information helps. If you need further assistance, please reply. We will be happy to help you.
