We are having an issue whereby internal mail is going to Outlook Junk mail folders and therefore we wish to completely disable the junk folder entirely as we have a pretty decent spam filter in place - I found this command Get-Mailbox -Database <Mailbox Database Name> | Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration -Enabled $false

Can anyone tell me if this will disable the junk mailbox for all users?

Only for database you set on <Mailbox database Name>.
One solution maybe create another database and move this mailbox or create a rule to move every email on junkbox to inbox.

Internal email shouldn't be subject to junk email filtering, unless it is coming from a source external to Exchange (printer, scanner etc).
Therefore disabling the junk email filter at the server level may not resolve the problem for you, because it could be happening at the client side.

Check one of the messages that has been filtered for its SCL value. If it doesn't have one or it is -1, then it was NOT Exchange that flagged it as junk.

Thanks for that - I need to disable at client side so probably going to have to look at a GPO option
