Outlook Phishing Detection doesn't seems to work

I would like to know how Outlook Phishing Detection work, because a customer receive a lot of phishing on his email account, and it doesn't detect it as junk!

Let's take for example emails "from PayPal".  In the "From:" field, it indicate @paypal.com.
There's many blue/underlined links in the email.

The Link shows https://www.paypal.com/...
But when you move your mouse over it, it shows a totally different link like "http://SomeOtherWebSite.com/...".

Why does Outlook doesn't detect it?  I've checked at the Junk Email Options, and the option "Disable links and other functionality in phishing messages" is checked.  But it doesn't do much... and if i click on the link, it just goes to that web page.  It should simply go to the junk.  If you mark the email as junk, everything sent from @paypal.com will be marked as junk, and that's not what you want...

thanks for your help

Really in short,

Outlook does not have the best in built Junk Mail Filter Capabilities.

You can create rules, to make it a little bit more robust

For for Comprehensive JunkMail Filtering, you really need to use 3rd party tools, apps, or services

I think i'll do that.   I've not even found a rule about junk!  

I've setuped my server to mark some emails as junk using the BarracudaCentral.org black list.  It's successful... email are marked as spam, but since that kind of spammer use impersonation using my customer name, i can't simply delete these emails, i got to mark them as junk.

But Outlook doesn't give a Sh.. if the envelope mention "Deliver to: Junk"...  it just process the rule, and move the junk out from the junk folder!  LMAO!   Really impressive for a commercial application...

So i'll give a try to one of those freebees, and i could simply ask to my server to delete those emails instead of marking them as junk.
