    Not sure who else is seeing this.
    I see one post about this on Apple Forums so-far...

    Exchange 2010.
    Mail on Mavericks started moving about 97% of all emails to a folder namesd Junk. *the native spam folder in Outlook/Exchange is Junk Email*.
    I could not get any work done as I was constantly checking/emailing/replying back to email out of this folder.

    On a PC, dragging all emails back to Inbox, it would just move them back out to this folder named Junk.

    I closed .mail
    Moved all email from Junk to Inbox.
    Waitied. It did not move the emails back to Junk.
    Deleted the Junk folder

    I don't plan to open up .mail until I see a *fix* posted.

    Mail's been weird in several cases.

    I'm using Mavericks Mail with Office 365 hosted Exchange, which I assume is Exchange 2013 but I don't know for sure, and everything seems to be working perfectly.

    Grrr.

    Outlook for Mac sucks.
    Mail was more just a secondary.

    I confirmed it by leaving Outlook only open for 24 hrs.
    No issues

    Opened up .mail, and it created a junk folder and started moving all items from Inbox to it.

    I deleted the exchange account of .mail.

    I'll just do what I've I've doing for years - which is using Parallels, with Outlook PC is my primary mail client.

    Outlook for Mac is not as bad as many are saying, especially if you are using Exchange. I like having one app for mail, calendar and tasks. Outlook also supports almost all Exchange features, especially categories..

    Do you have Junk Mail Filtering enabled in Mail? I don't.

    Junk is turned off in .mail

    PetVas. Are you familiar with Outlook on PC. Have you used them back2back to use as a baseline on talking back to Exchange.

    OutlookPC is far superior.....
    All my rigs are Macs. The substandard performance is why I am using a VM strictly to run Outlook

    Of course I am familiar with Outlook on Windows. Actually I am an expert in Exchange/Outlook and I work as an IT Architect...
    That doesn't mean that Outlook on the Mac is worse than the Mac Mail app.
