Block emails by specific words in the subject line.
Suggest being able to block all emails that contain words like Viagra or Cialis in the subject line. I almost daily have to block emails trying to sell this item but don't want any of them.
First I appreciate the free email service and understand why you post ads to go with it. But I resent the ads from Great Call, advertising simple phones. I do not need or want a simple phone. As one who has reached so called retirement age, I resent the insinuation that I suddenly need or want this type of phone. Would like to stop any ads from Great Call, and anything else like this. People reaching retirement age today have been using tech in their daily lives for many years and have grown up adapting to new devices as they have been developed. So I should be able to block Great Call and ads for its simple phones, or any other company selling such devices. Thank you for listening.
I keep getting junk mails from addresses that contain parts of a domain only but I can only block at a domain level. This doesnt work so well when a part of the domain is consistently changed: i.e. @xyz.blocker.com and @ abc.blocker.com and @123.blocker.com.
So need way to block "blocker.com"
Also the blocking capability doesn't differentiate for text case whereas some spammers do so I cannot seem to block @P and @p at once.
Simple fixes for MS.
The ability to block repetitive Subject Lines would be most helpful as senders continuously change their domains. I have already selected to receive emails from my safe list only but this feature does not work at all.
I recieve up to 100 junk emails a day with disgusting subject lines about herpes, fungus, Viagra, etc.
Shame on me for distributing my email for its intended purpose however Microsoft please do better to make your customers experience a great one.
The ability to block emails not only by there email address but by the titles. Basically bring us back some control to block. We all know you want data as more data means money. But we dont want emails from certain pests that constantly annoy us .
I get a ton of spam emails (many are ****** or pot related) and most of them can't be blocked because they use many variations of their email address -- no matter how many times I block them, they just keep reappearing. I reach the 1000 limit so quickly that it has become useless. Most days I receive 70 spam emails a day! I never go to x-rated sites, so don't know why I get so many offensive emails.
PLEASE add a way to use the subject tag to block spam emails--I want to be able to block subject lines that contain certain words (Asian beauties, Russian beauties, f#ck buddies, cannabis, etc). I think this would solve most people's issues with spam. And it seems like it would be an easy fix.
Honestly, if this can't be addressed, everyone keeps telling me that gmail doesn't have this issue.

Please allow us to block the subject heading as well as the address.

Since multiple addresses spam, with each address selling the same products, allow us to block:
Hotmail used to have capability to block emails if they have certain words in Subject. This is very helpful if you bring it back
I'm getting bombarded with 'Adult Dating' and 'Hotmail Dating' emails from random addresses, I've counted about 10+ per day at times, I've been reporting as phishing scam, and blocking them Its driving me INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED A SUBJECT AUTOMATIC BLOCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm at my absolute wits END
With the old Hotmail a user was able to block spam emails with certain phrases or words in the subject line because as we all know blocking an email address is pointless as they change. well know I see you can't do that with new Microsoft outlook. **** Microsoft ****** me off!

We need to block junk mail by Name not just e-mail address or Subject. Anything from someone named "apple cider vinegar", "male enhancement", "obamacare", trumpcare", car/home warranty, "protect your home", or any number of affiliate-program-sponsoring brands like Lyft, Dish, Inogen, LifeLock, etc. need to be bounced.
They've obviously stopped using those words in the Subject line, and it's pointless to try to block randomly-generated, one-time e-mail addresses.
Would it be possible to provide an option to block emails with a certain subject? I receive emails regularly with 'Adult Dating' as the subject. The senders are always different so blocking them isn't working.

I'd like to be able to block emails based on the subject heading as well as just the email sender. I receive 2-3 emails daily entitled 'Adult Dating' which manage to get through because they keep changing the sender email, but the subject heading is always the same. Blocking on subject heading would remove these spam emails

Would be extremely helpful to enable blocking emails by subject line, selectable by the user. Some emails should never get through in the first place. Other email services do not have nearly as much spam getting through as Outlook Mail.

Heh Pharmacy.can too?
The Sweep rules should do the Subject Line (but not the sender's name, I've made a request for this), but unsure if they work correctly.
Add a feature that blocks an email if it contains a certain word in the subject line...such as *****, ****, erectile, Trump, etc. We could choose the word ourselves and update the list as needed.
could you make it possible to block words in the email address. I am getting a 100 emails a day with similar subject lines. In the short time it took to write this, two more popped in. I do not have this problem with a google account.
