    Outlook needs to add a feature where in one click, you can block the entire domain. Right now you must take multiple steps that are excessively complicated. There is simply too much junk mail for this to be an efficient way to do this.

    When I choose to block an email, it seems that I get even more spam mail. I am a 73 year old female and get ads intended for men, such as invitations to see photos of women in my area, low cost Viagra. I have to filter through each email in my Spam folder because recipients on my safe list are sometimes in my Spam folder and the same recipients are sometimes in my Inbox. I have no idea how to fix this. Why have a Spam folder at all?!?

    Time consuming spam mail is becoming popular!! How can it be stopped ?? Would be great if we were alerted that it was spam so it could be deleted straight away to avoid constant ploughing through it day after day.

    Spam filter is flawed. So many emails I’d actually like to read end up there. Better way of filtering would be appreciated. I hate rifling through the spam folder :/

    Evite and party invitations always go to spam. Other group emails from parents, school and sports go to spam even when I move to inbox and save addresses as contacts.

    Outlook definitely needs a better spam filter. Offensive spam gets through to my inbox routinely no matter how much blocking I do.

    I totally agree to the others of adding a better filter for spam. Even if I hit the unsubscribe button I still get those mails about loans and vice versa. And it can be 3-4 of the same spam coming right after each other.
