All (literally all) Office 365 Network notifications are getting held in Quarantine by Exchange Online Protection.


Can you make your messages less SPAMMY so they don't get flagged everytime?

I know they are working on this, but will just add it here as well, if you are using a microsoft account (tied to Gmail), you dont even receive the messages at all (not even in spam/junk).


Kind of a big deal, especially if you arent gonna give us a mobile app to stay engaged.

Hi @Chris Moon - this is a known issue and we're working on it. We're also aware (per @Brent Ellis comment) that some users are not receiving email notifications at all. Thank you!

Email notifications should function properly now and not be blocked by spam/email gateways or put into clutter.

SPF still fail.


Received-SPF Fail ( domain of does not designate as permitted sender); client-ip=;;

Email notifications are still failing SPF check. SPF (fail ( domain of does not designate as permitted sender)).

Email Notifications from Microsoft Tech Community are failing SPF.  The reason being the SPF record for has two lines which violates RFC (  When checking the SPF record for the following is returned: 3599 IN TXT "v=spf1 -all" 3599 IN TXT " 3600 IN TXT v=spf1 ip4: ip4: -all"


Since the notifications are coming from[] the SPF check will fail since only the 1st line is evaluated (The order in which the lines are resolved may vary depending on which dns servers are queried).  To correct this mstechcommunity needs to remove the first line listed and only publish the second line.

I received another quarantined email from just today and was notified by  Some how it seems a little odd that microsoft flags its own products.

I have seen many emails rejected due to Unknown Sender domain... there is no A record and also no MX record in DNS for


Do you have plans to fix that?
