ImportantImportant:
The Junk Email Reporting Add-in submits reports to the Microsoft Exchange Online Protection (EOP) service. If your mailbox is not protected by the service, your junk email report submission will not affect your spam filters.
TipTip:
You can also submit spam messages directly to Microsoft by using the junk@office365.microsoft.com email address, and false positive (non-spam) messages by using the not_junk@office365.microsoft.com email address. For more information, see Submitting spam and non-spam messages to Microsoft for analysis.
