include a junk/spam/phishing button on the app
make it possible and easy to mark mail as junk, spam, and phishing
Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
You can now move emails to any folder you wish including the Spam folder, by simply choosing the “more options” icon within the message (3 dots) > tap move> choose the folder you would like to move the email to. You can also move multiple emails by selecting them from the inbox view, tap the 3 dot icon > tap move then choose the folder you would like to move to. For outlook.com accounts only, sending items to spam will be picked up as a signal by our reporting team and will lead to the sender being blocked. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.
PS: Please use the Help Section of the app for any questions, we are not able to see replies to this address.
All the best
The Outlook Mobile Team

I don't want to have to either open a dropdown or a menu, and then confirm deletion to instantly delete and report as phishing. I know what I'm doing.

Have essential features like blocking and reporting dangerous or obnoxious emails or email addresses. I have been receiving phishing scam emails pretending to be Apple, regularly. There is no option to block or report these types of emails.

in this android app, I can mark an incoming message as 'move to spam' or 'flag'.
in the online version of outlook, I can mark a message as 'flag', 'mark as junk' or 'mark as phishing'.
in my laptop version, my choices are 'flag', 'mark as junk' or 'block'.
can you cite a good reference where I can learn more about the variations to make a better decision in reducing or eliminating unwanted emails, please?

"Move to Spam Folder" is not enough! We wish these kind of phising emails out of network. So innocent people don't fall in trap. In efforts to that we always try to report them, so these emails get identified and be stopped! We doing our part, so should you,
Please add option "Report Phishing Email" in the app like the web version

The website sucks on mobile and desktop site on Chrome just reloads. Am I just overlooking phishing scam on the app??

received a fake email from DVA saying that a payment not received and requesting personal detaiils but when i look for a tab to report or scam tab there is no way to report via outlook. please address this in your app as it is frustrating.

How about a searching and sorting algorithm to the Spam/phishing button... it should work like this: 1) you click the undesired spam mail that has for example the name "go casino" 2) you set a check mark or sorting like that on that spam mail that executes the code search for all Spam mails with the name "go casino" and check mark it 3) you can set it to be blocked and marked as phishing for the future. 4) optionally a button to crash their servers such that they can never spam again

Thank You for this. It has been a long time comming.
This is not enough! Every day I have to send my previous time to remove a lot of spam, which are often in the wrong folders (folder Sent) , so that I often loose important mails.
This app Cannot be Truste! You should make it possible to Block received spam for good.
Outlook has become a pretty dangerous program, which can destroy your smartphone/pc/tablet.
I am happy that you take your customers' problems seriously, thank you a thousand times for that important action.

Here's how a spam button should work: 1) You hit the button for a particular e-mail. 2) you don't get those spam e-mails anymore.
Your dev team treats it like a delete button.

A lot of spam emails to my inbox. Outlook has the worst security filters.

this would be so helpful especially since 'unsubscribe ' buttons are a joke. If you click on unsubscribe I swear it is like they use that as an indicator to accelerate the barrage of junk mail. I feel like I'm suffocating in junk mail and losing important ones because there are too many to go through.

I complained in a report to them about this and they just told me to ask for the reporting/blocking option here in suggestions... I'm starting to think they don't care that much about their own app. I get loads of dumb emails about "being bigger for her" despite having a female label on my email account. I'm also now getting credit card offers and other spam still.
