when I had outlook 2003 I could reply from a message that was in my junk mail folder.  This was convenient because I have an aggressive junk filter and I don't want to move the message to the inbox first.  

I have since upgraded to outlook 2010 and I can't seem to do it and I can't find any setting change to allow this.  Is it possible to do in Outlook 2010?

    Hi Matt

    You should be able to (I tested it and I could) The only thing that does happen is that the content format changes over to "Plain text". Outlook prompts you with a security warning stating the format change. The easy solution is o mark valid e-mail as "not junk" by right clicking on it while in the "junk e-mail folder". Is this on a personal computer or is your computer on a corporate network?
