Outlook Spam Testing

Is this testing even accurate?  I can’t get anything to pass this test.  Does outlook junkbox anything with a link?  There is no spammy words at all being used and I can’t get most basic of tests to pass.

Please provide some information on how to pass this test if not I don’t see the point of even having it there.

I’m sorry you’re having trouble with Outlook testing. Unfortunately, the makers of most SPAM filters are very tight-lipped about how their filters operate, so as to keep spammers from cheating them. If we had any more info about why Outlook does or does not pass an email, we would certainly make that available to you.

If you’d like to email your code (attached as a .html file) to support [at], I’d be happy to take a look at it.
