reviews incoming e-mails and gives them points. For each spam-like indication an amout of points is given (high indicator? many points. low indicator? few points). The overall sum is then compared to a threshold: too many points? E-mail is spam.

(that one, not all spam filters in general) shouldn't do that
. And the original intention was that all the Microsoft

reports on your e-mail(s) - then we can talk about how to solve this issue or even others as well.

I understand how you feel about that and I didn't knew about this either, but in long terms using a new domain will help you most - you will never manage to contact each possible recipient maintainer to whitelist your domain.
