We are using Exchange Online (office 365) and the content filter for the domain is set to "Move message to Junk Email folder" for "Spam" and "High Confidence Spam". I interpret that to mean any email with an SCL rating of 5 or higher will get delivered into the Junk Email folder in the recipient's Outlook (2010).
However, some SCL 5 get deliver into the inbox and some get delivered into Junk Email.
How is that? How can I route all email with an SCL of 5 or greater into Junk Email?

This went to the inbox:

SCL 5 or greater should be moved to Junk, according to this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj200686(v=exchg.150).aspx

And it seems to be classified correctly, so perhaps the issue is in the mailbox settings. Check the OWA options for that mailbox, under Block and Allow the automatic filter might be switched off. Check for any safe senders, which will simply bypass this.

You can also adjust a transport rule for the X-Forefront-Antispam-Report or the X-MS-Exchange-Organization-SCL and move them to the Junk folder. See for example here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj837173(v=exchg.150).aspx

It turns out I needed to use OWA settings in "Block and Allow" to truly activate the use of the Jun Email folder.
Thank you!
