Junk Mail Filter stopped working

I'm running Outlook 2010 (Home and Business Edition 32 bits).
I have a long list of "Blocked Senders" that suddenly stopped to work: Doesn't filter anymore.
How do I correct this?
Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,
Flores

There was a recent update to the junk email filter - might be worth a look through this MS Article:

Dear Irene,

Thanks for your help.

I have both my W7 and Office 2010 updated, and this update is installed even though I was not aware of.

Coincidence or not, the junk mail filter stopped working quite recently.
Maybe this update (or some of the others downloaded at the same date) is(are) responsible for the problem.

Regards,
Flores

Perhaps you could uninstall the specific update and see if that resolves that problem. If not, you can always reinstall.

Hi Irene,

Yes, that's exactly what I have done yesterday and it worked just fine.

Thanks so much,
