    Mmicro soft needs to look closely at these adult emails. I'm subscribing and they still coming through. how are they getting my email address.

    allow users to flag and block adult *** advertising. Then outlook can look closer at them.
    It's become a large chunk of my junk mail!

    guys this is DANGEROUS. why dont you block it or flag it as spam ?

    if you build a script for detecting adult data it only works by scanning the words. but that also means if any of your normal mails contains ANYTHING that is considered adultery you will NOT receive that mail.

    I think you want these mails to not show up completely for your kids ?
    so that also means the mails should not go in a certain folder like spam ?
    that also means you will have situations the app fails and targets your normal mails THAT YOU WILL NEVER SEE. and if these are bills are anything else it could deliver problems.

    also if you want this to be working EFFICIENTLY 100% of the time you need to create a sort of self learning AI. as it is much harder to so scan a picture and the text In it.

    now IMPORTANT !!
    To be able to add in a filter like this your mails need to be scanned and analysed. if you do this via a simple script then it will often also fail to block the mail as it fails to find it. Only efficient way is to store your mails and scan results in a DATABASE so the scanner learns to do it's job better. !!!!

    IF THIS HAPPENS NOT ONLY I SAY GOOD BY TO THIS APP AND MICROSOFT I WILL ALSO SUE THEM FOR BREACHING MY AND EUROPEAN PRIVACY LAWS
