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

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.

I receive emails from people posing as a company (Amazon, FedEx, DHL, etc) saying I have a package to be delivered and need to collect payment/verify shipping address. They need to be reported !!!!

If you use your laptop, you are able to report phishing attempt. I'd like to do the same using Android.

Things like your tax rebate is due, or your parcel has been waiting-please forward payment.....very distressing!
Rick Sefton commented
way to much spam is permitted. blocking and reporting to you is also a waste every day on spam
I don't like having to open a suspicious email in order to delete it or add it to spam.
Just like there is a choice to delete an email, forward and email, or flag an email… Please add an option to mark an email as Junk. When we do that, Outlook should delete the email and add the sender to a blocked list from that point forward. It takes the same amount of time to mark an email as Junk/Spam as it does to delete it. I would feel more productive if I marked spam email with that same 1-click and Outlook always moved messages from that sender to spam in the future and deleted the email at the same time.
