Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

I find it works about 80% of the time. I also have my ISP flag junk mail with "JUNK" in the headers and yeah about 20 % of those come through windows "live" mail uncaught.

I think the problem is, it is 100% unacceptable to most people to ever throw away a legitimate piece of email. Given that it's impossible to be 100% accurate, I assume that MS has erred on the side of caution to not get tons of flak for throwing away real mail even on the high setting

My ISP junk tagging does in deed tag a legitimate mail about once every several thousand spams (which is about once a month for me). If Windows mail threw away an important bank statement like that, they'd probably be sued for billions or something...

Junk mail return?
When you get junk mail and send it back with a reply you get Administer mail return which never made it to the sender so why can't we do the same and Bounce our email back to the sender the second time they send the junk mail? Going into the junk email box means we still get the crap so why can't...

WLM,Gmail and Junk Mail
I use Gmail as my primary mail service. I have been using Outlook and Outlook Express but am now trying Windows Live Mail (AKA WLM). The difference I have between the Outlook programs and WLM is that WLM brings in the JUNK mail that Gmail puts a Junk Mail Folder and it does not delete the messages...
