    There are sooo many spam mails in my main post folder. It’s almost impossible to use it normally.

    You send friend’s emails that are replies to mine to the spam filter!! Don’t spam emails that I have engaged with. Since spam is deleted every month, I have no idea how many important emails I have lost with this outrageous oversight

    Gmail has far better spam filters, apparently. This actually surprises me that Microsoft isn’t even close in this category. It’s almost as if they don’t even care lol

    Not being able to block senders or have a reliable spam filtering algorithm in this app makes it useless to me. I loaded the app to replace “Messages” on my iPad because of these reasons and because it seems more junk/spam has been surfacing in my Inbox. If this is relatively similar to the issues with “Messages,” why would I load your app instead?

    Your all is useless until you add a button to allow me to block sender‼️‼️‼️

    THIS. I use Outlook on my phone while traveling and since we can’t block certain words or phrases, the spam build up is ridiculous when I am gone for even a day or so.

    In fact 80% of my e-mails which I need to receive and they are not spam are going to spam and it is very difficult to check each time both folders in order to find mail which you are waiting for. You should correct your algorithms

    I need to be able to designate who safe senders are. New business contacts go to the Junk Mail folder and I have been unable to figure out how to change the status of them so that their e-mails go to my Inbox instead.

    The one disappointment of Outlook on my mobile is that unlike Outlook on my computer, I cannot block spam mail. The bane of our life!

    Getting spammed like crazy should be away to block the extensions... So say someone has signed you up for alot of spam — example would be that sites extension they would use. So that whole site would BE BLOCKED
