Outlook 2007 / Gmail Imap how can I remove or turn off the Junk Email folder

outlook keeps filtering my email into the junk email folder and I would like to remove that folder or turn it off

I did some research and it seems that you can't turn the folder off and hide it but it seems like the only way is to turn off its functionality and I thought that I had done this but it seems like it is still filtering
how can I stop it from filtering?

Hello BTMExpert,

You cannot turn off Gmail filtering for junk mail.  You cannot change its options.

You can add the sender to Contacts list, which acts as White list or Safe Sender list.  (But this does not always work.)

Hope this helps!
