alphabetize blocked senders lists
suggest you LIST "safe senders" and "blocked senders" ALPHABETICALLY.
sure would simplify adding and/or removing names a lot easier.
It would be nice if we were able to sort the blocked senders list, alphabetically, by domain. That way we could get rid of multiple addresses for the same domain and just block the domain, which would, of course, help with future spam emails, as well. I have hundreds of blocked addresses on outlook.com, but to go through them one by one to check the domain is FAR too time consuming.
Being able to sort the blocked senders list by domain, alphabetically, would surely help.

Your "Block Senders" function is not working correctly, unless it merely moves the messages t0 junk mail. If that is the case, please indicate that in the information about blocked senders, so we can stop wasting our time reporting junk mail received.
Also, your "Phishing Scam" reporting seems to be ineffective, as the same scammers continue to do business as evidenced by how many junk mails still come from these same sites.
Finally, does ANYONE make an effort to block at the source these sites like "clialiedge.com" that generate massive numbers of junk mail. Couldn't you just block those at your servers and not pass them through at all? That would reduce both load and storage consumption on your servers, and reduce the aggravation for your clients.
There are also emails that display an address that you can write to unsubscribe from their emails. Interestingly, a huge number of these emails reference an address of "75 Arlington Street Suite 500 Boston, MA 02116". Maybe someone could stage a raid like in the beginning of the movie "Three Days of the Condor"...
The list of blocked senders should be alphabetized. It's impossible to find a send that has been accidentally blocked when trying to look through a disorganized list of several hundred blocked addresses.

When I accessed email through MSN Butterfly, MSN alphabetized Blocked Senders. That function needs to ALSO be in Outlook. Now that I understand Message Source & how to ALSO block IP addresses, I need to be able to quickly find an address or IP address. SO ALPHABETIZE BS's LIST, and numeralize IP ADDRESSES.
When we receive mail from unwanted users, we block it or the domain. We have a limited number of addresses and domains we block. If we hit that maximum number, it would really help if MSN could provide us a list of e-mail addresses or domains that we previously blocked that have not attempted to contact us recently. We could then eliminate them from our blocked list and add the new addresses or domains we wish to block. It would help us a great deal! Thanks :-)

"Alphabetize the "Block senders" list.
I am manicuring my e-mail. I have schools, colleges, family-ran businesses, friends, and change of store tastes constantly changing in my life. We have a fine number of block senders. We have a susceptibility to an infinite amount of online spammers/flamers/etc. We should have the "ease" of fine tuning our Blocked senders lift with alphabetization in our arsenal. This would allow us to maximize our effectiveness in keeping our inbox safer and cleaner.
Could you also always have present the side note information on who to block ALL suffix-of-per-email and ALL prefix-per-email for those who aren't e-mail savvy.
Show the 'Blocked senders' list in alphabetical order.

1) Would love to see the blocked senders list alphabetize properly.
2) Would love to see the blocked senders list update and alphabetize properly after each time you click save. Right now you have to log out of mail completely and get back in, and it's still not alphabetized properly.
3) Would love it if you could add domains only, at the time you review your junk mail and choose to send them to blocked senders, and in such a manner that you don't have to retype it. I don't want to open junk mail to cut and paste the portion of the address needed.
I do love that the domains alphabetize (as much as they do) separately from the full email address ones.
Blocked Senders List: while checking this list, I suddenly realized it is not alphabetized! Help! And, it is hard to search. We need it alphabetized or at least have the ability to export it so we can easily search.
Hotmail always provided an organized list of Safe Senders and Blocked Senders that were in numerical order and alphabetized properly from A-Z from beginning to end. Ever since you rolled out the new Hotmail/Outlook.com platform my Safe Senders and Blocked Senders lists are a jumbled mess! My Blocked and Safe Senders lists contain entries that start off alphabetized from A to Z, but then those entries are followed by a large number of totally random numerical and unalphabetized entries, which are followed by a group of properly alphabetized entries from A-Z, which are followed by another group of random numerical and unalphabetized entries. This makes it impossibly difficult to search for a sender that you might have accidentally blocked or marked as safe. PLEASE, write a script that puts all the entries in alphabetical and numerical order so the user can easily find the entry they are looking for. Thank you.
Why doesn't the blocked sender list automatically sort the addresses alphabetically?
Currently there is no sorting available for "Blocked Senders list" in "Options". It'd help a lot and save time if that list is shown in alphabetically order or having a sorting option. At present it's being shown based on added-time order, which is not that much usable.

The Blocked and Safe Senders lists are already alphabetized.
Please make the Blocked Senders List one large alphabetically organized list. Right now I have multiple sections in the Blocked Senders, some of which are in alphabetical order, and other sections that are not alphabetized. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the order of the Blocked senders lists.
Sections that are alphabetized are separated by numerous entries that are NOT in alphabetical order. It's as if I have a schizophrenic Blocked Senders list, which makes it very hard to find a particular sender to see if they have already been added to the list.
It also makes it extremely difficult to locate a sender that you marked as junk by accident! If I could find the senders name from an A to Z alphabetical list I could delete their name from the blocked senders list easily, but that is not the case with the way this list is presented.
No matter what sender gets added to the list, at what ever point in time they are added, the list should always default to an alphabetical list from A to Z. That has not been the case ever since you rolled out the new Outlook.com. Please fix this!
Include a block sender tab I am 78 years old and even though it is marked as junk and I have elected to "opt " out at the website I continue to get "get an erection on demand " notices and many similar EMAILS

easier access to blocked email lists would be nice thankyou :)
I have sent mail that was carbon copied to me, using Outlook 2013. When I check Outlook.com, the mail items show in the sent items folder but do not show up in my inbox ever.
I've "tested account settings" in Outlook 2013 and I DO receive the "Test Message".
I've checked my filters, safe and blocked senders, junk email and clutter in Outlook.com and cannot find the recipients in the blocked or filtered lists. My own email address is in the Safe Senders list so I should be receiving emails I sent myself.
Please help me get this working again. It was fine until the "new" outlook.com was released.

Allow us to sort, copy, paste, search, import and export from our blocked senders lists.

Provide the ability to sort the "Blocked Senders" list by domain and by address. This could be used to highlight email addresses from the same domain which could provide a means to identify rouge domains. Those domains could then be blocked at the domain level and eliminate any further email from a different email address at that domain.
Regarding Blocked Sender list, more functions are needed, such as (1) SORT that sorts the current list in ascending or descending order, (2) inputting MULTIPLE ADDRESSES so that we can enter multiple addresses--maybe separated by a semicolon; e.g., address1; address2. Also, the Blocked Sender list box should be (3) DYNAMIC meaning we need to be able to resize the box size, because some email addresses are too long to view the entire address.
