Junk mail filter
Since having the new Outlook app forced upon me, I am receiving 20-40 junk and spam emails on my Inbox. This never happened before with the previous online version of Outlook / Hotmail. Please dramatically improve junk mail and spam filtering. This Online Outlook upgrade is currently rated zero of 5 stars as a result of all this junk mail and spam no longer being filtered out. Zero being the worst of the worst. The lowest of the lows.
Thank you for considering
Better spam/junk Mail protection. I enjoyed outlook for many years until recently. Namely January 2021 I started receiving an incredible amount of junk and spam mail. I have found no way nor any filters that I could enable or adjust.

Send everything to the junk folder that you believe is spam and let the user have the choice. Stop trying to filter things out as in some cases you’re blocking emails that are very important. Your algorithm ultimately is terrible.
Please make it easy or obvious how to block spam or junk mail.
I receive too much spam
Let me disable default junk email folder. It’s is trapping important messages even when they are from known senders.
Then if I don’t catch it within 10 days of receiving it, they are deleted. This is awful
In need of better junk mail filter. I am getting a bunch of junk mail in my inbox that used to go to my junk mail. It’s very irritating and needs to be improved upon.
A better way to sort spam and not have it come into my main folders
Find a better way to filter all the unnecessary and sometimes distasteful junk mail
Better filter obvious junk mail

You need better junk and fraud filtering

I’m ready to give up on outlook. Gmail does so much better filtering junk mail!
Better filtering so that junk mail doesn’t continue to enter priority inbox

I regularly see junk and spam emails in my inbox. Better categorization techniques required to directly have them go to the junk folder.
1) Provision to filter junk emails
2) option to mark an email as read/unread

I receive the same kind of spam every single day - 40 emails. They repeat the same subjects, Keranique hair, TL900 flashlight, Warby Parker and so on... Every single day I have to go through my junk folder to see if any legitimate emails get sent there - and i consistently remove several non-junk emails.
I do this ritual EVERY DAY for the past SIX MONTHS - it is unbelievably time consuming.
The spam filter learns absolutely NOTHING when I mark email as NOT JUNK or if I mark an email as JUNK, it just moves it to the junk folder.
Does Microsoft's algorithm actually do any learning? Why am I seeing the same garbage in the JUNK folder? It's already been marked as junk for the past six months, why do I still keep receiving it? The goal is to start blocking it so that legitimate junk doesn't ever hit my mailbox or any of its subfolders.
Google does a phenomenal job with its filters, and Microsoft always let garbage in since Hotmail started over 2 decades ago.
Even if u mark an email as junk outlook app does not seem to understand that . You will continue to receive the emails from the sender that u already marked as junk which is quite frustrating .

My son is 14,this is his e-mail account.every other message is x-rated!-I’m ALWAYS DELETING!!!-please help remove this!
Would it be possible to run a script that puts certain keywords straight into the trash, not into the spam folder. For example I want to put all emails with the text “bitcoin” straight into the trash.
literally all my inbox consists of junk/spam mail. this wasn’t happening 2 years ago and i’ve made this account for a while
The spam filter seems to operate without rhyme or reason. There should be a way to mark emails as “not junk” from the Junk Email folder.
Important emails end up in the Junk email with frequency. The filter does not do a very good job of determining junk from good emails. How about a setting to turn off Junk email?
