https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124696(v=exchg.80).aspx has some information on the Exchange Anti-Spam agents in Exchange. If can't find the Anti-spam agents in the Management Console, then the messages are being routed through a spam filter, which you would need to modify to allow messages from that user.

If you can see the anti-spam agents in Exchange, modify the sender filter to allow the user and it will keep messages from them getting flagged.

Hello

If you do-not want your sender to be marked as spam then simply
Go to inbox >> right click on the mail >> Junk E-mail >> Never block sender's domain.
Or
Go to inbox >> right click on the mail >> Junk E-mail >>Junk E-mail options >> Safe senders >> Add the domain.

Thanks & Regards

Could you post the internet header of that email? Internal mail shall have scl=-1

If the internal mail consider as junk, the scl must 9 then we have to why that happen?

The sender configured his outlook as pop or imap or mapi (https for exchange 2013). What antivirus/antispam software that used or install on exchange server

You have Avast Anti-spam installed on the Exchange server. It's scoring the user with a 98, which means "HOLY CRAP THIS IS SPAM!" to Avast. Get into the Avast Anti-spam interface and whitelist the user.
