Junk folder in Hotmail

Wed Oct 30, 2019 6:33 pm

I have downloaded the free version to find out if this is any good but I have found that it will only read what is in my Inbox. I use Hotmail and, except for a few specific recipient addresses, all my mail seems to go to the Junk folder including the enormous amount of spam I am receiving. In order for Mailwasher to read what is in my Junk folder, do I need to purchase the Pro version or is there something I can do in Hotmail. Newbie here and will appreciate any help. Thanks

Under Settings >> Accounts >> Incoming >> check your account is using IMAP, if not change then Save >> then under the IMAP tab select the Junk folder to also be checked >> Save.
