  1. Import old junk mail rules rather than starting from scratch.

    I'm thoroughly impressed with the new Outlook.com - great job, and please carry on making it more excellent.
    I'm a bit peeved, however, by the emails asking me if a just-received email was junk or not. Typically that's triggered by an email to myself, and I'd think those are easy to qualify. I also get the same "junk/not?" prodding after each email I send myself, and I'd think the rules stick.
    Lastly, I'm now getting emails which previously (before beta) had long been filtered as junk.
    Thanks for listening!

    • emaisl received, try to block invalid email and cant block why?

      When I block emails, it says you cant block this email its invalid, why did I receive an email from them, and also says can not block my own, I didnt select any of my own in the email listing to delete, so why is it asking me that? this has only just started and its annoying , will have to go to google or mail.com and close this account which I have had since 1995

        • Blocked email address add button shortcut

          Hello, would be a great idea to be able to add email address to blocked senders instead of going to options every time. A shortcut. If this is already somehow possible please let me know.

          • Expedite junk blocking

            Please add a one or two click option to block a sender. The current process is too long.

            • Never mark as Junk Mail

              A button that is "never mark as junk mail" would be nice. Many of my emails I am consistently marking as not junk even though they are from the same sender.

              • You should be able to access the "SAfe" and "Blocked" senders on the mobile app!!

                Users do not have the option to add emails to the "Safe Senders" or "Blocked Senders" from the mobile app. Users should have this option on the app.

                    • Simplify blocking senders

                      When unwanted mail is received a more simple way of adding them to the blocked senders list should be devised. A simple drop down check box would be ideal. Constantly receive 'Spam' mail on my hotmail account is very troubling to the extent that I am considering closing the account completely.

                      • User specific email filtering

                        Give users the option to block emails which contain specific wording. I say this because the current junk email filtering service is quite sub-par.
                        All it would take is to say "block any emails which contain <insert string> in header or email body" and automatically block, or if you prefer divert to junk mail.

                        • Disable Save Sent / Disable Junk Filters

                          We want to be able to disable the Junk E-mail filter so we can manage SPAM on our clients.

                          We want to be able to prevent messages sent via POP, being saved on the Outlook.Com server.

                          Users managing via POP generally will want to ensure that NOTHING remains on the server once they have downloaded their e-mails. If they want anything left, it will be controlled via the POP client options, it should not be controlled via the server.

                          • Give Junk filters ability to learn

                            Is there any way to get the Junk filter to "learn"? I have several trusted senders whose email routinely gets sent to the Junk folder. I don't want to make my filter less exclusive in general, but if it could recognize senders who I regularly designate "not junk", it would be great to be able to have those eventually end up in my Inbox. Thanks for listening!

                            • Sort blocked senders list by domain

                              Blocked senders list - sort by domain. I'd like to clean up my blocked senders list but can't when there's still addresses using a domain I'm trying to block. The list restarts alphabetically at least three times, so it is hard to find every instance of a domain. If users could sort by domain name it would be easier to check the list and clear out unwanted entries and duplicates.

                                Mark unread messages in the junk mail folder. I just see how many junk messages I have, but I want to see how many unread junk messages I have. I check my junk mail every day, so its important to me to see how many unread messages are there.

                                • Filters

                                  Keep the new "look" but bring back all the other features that used to be available. For example, filters and contact list! With the new changes, my previous filters have been deleted (and everyone else's according to the reviews) and now I am missing important emails because everything is going to junk mail. Please fix these problems. You probably shouldn't make major changes to things like email accounts until you get all the bugs worked out.

                                    • Email's sent to Junk

                                      I am a media professional who works heavily with the cloud, almost every email I send either contains a YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Drive link for my clients to review. Because of the link, my email's are always placed in my client's Junk folder which then prompts me to send out yet another email asking the client to check their other folders. I understand that this is done to prevent spam from reaching users inboxes, but it would be very nice if Outlook could truly sense that my emails and others like me, are not junk. For instance if one…

                                      • Junkmail Rules?

                                        The issue i have is that before the 'new and improved outlook' i have emails that went specifically to folders that i have sorted, as in Private, Healthcare, Newsletters, Airlines+Hotels etc. Now for some reason, about 95% of all my emails are going directly into my junk mail folder. Even when i go through your new 'çreate rules' system, the next day, all new emails from companies i had created rules for are being sent back to my junk mail folder and not the folders i want them in. I shouldn't have to keep sorting my emails and creating rules…

                                        • Search blocked senders

                                          It would be helpful to search 'blocked senders'. I'm not receiving emails from someone and it takes awhile to go through my blocked senders list to see if they are in there.
