Exchange is automatically configured to filter junk mail to your junk e-mail folder.  The setting should be set to "Don't move e-mail to my Junk E-Mail folder."  If the setting is not on this setting, it is recommended that the setting be manually changed.  This setting is recommended because it minimizes potential conflicts between the email server filtering process and the local user's email client filtering settings.  

Some users, however, may wish to change this default setting in Outlook Web App (OWA), which can be done by following the steps below.
