Outlook 2010 send two internal users to the Junk Folder

We have a customer were internal emails from only two members of staff sometimes end up in the Junk Folder in outlook.

There are no rules or Junk setting to block the users. We've reset the Junk option back to default. Also recreated the Outlook Profile.

We are using Microsoft SBS 2011 and Outlook 2010 Client. Everything is updated.
On the Exchange Management Console, I've set a Transport rule for inside email to have a SCL of -1

Any help is appreciated.

One of the Junk Mail features is that you can whitelist email addresses. Junk Mail filters are not perfect (understatement). Did you try adding the email users to the whitelist?

Are these internal users sending email via Outlook/OWA, or using POP3/IMAP to send email?
Internal email shouldn't be subject to any filtering, unless it comes in from an external source (POP3/IMAP is considered external).

If you look in the message headers, do you see the SCL value listed?

In response to the above:
1. We have tried adding the blocked sender to the whitelist, but to not avail.
2. Internal users send primarily using the Outlook client, though the problematic user also connects to his mailbox using his Samsung phone.
3. All e-mail is sent via the internal Exchange server through SMTP
4. SCL value is -1

When we can pin down the user, we are going to reset the Junk settings to default then completely wipe the Outlook profile.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

If the SCL is -1 then it isn't Outlook or Exchange that is moving the messages. It has to be something else. Third party software, AV etc would be the primary suspect here.

We've got hold of the user. There is very little installed on the OS. The only software installed on the laptop is Windows 8 Pro, Office 2010 Home and Business, McAfee SaaS, Sage 50 Accounts 2013 and Sage Job Costing V8.

We've recreated the User's Outlook Profile and this still didn't work. However, there was an issue were the user's profile and it had to be deleted from the system, We recreated the profile from scratch. Since this was done, the problem has not occurred.

Thanks for the assist. I believe it was a 3rd party application, but there is not a lot installed.

Removing the users profile from the system worked, but we were then unable to fully diagnose the problem.
