Block directly from inbox junk mail
At the moment, emails in the junk folder have to be moved to the inbox in order to report them as junk. It would make more sense to be able to report/block them directly from the junk folder (as in the web based Outlook).
Stop junk before it gets to me. Far too much spam.

When undesired senders are blocked they go to Junk Folder, but there should be a way of permanently blocking them from the Junk Folder. I still get 100s of blocked senders in my junk folder everyday.
too many junk mail
Be able to block and report those people who send unsolicited perverted emails!
Feature to permanently block certain email senders and a one button press to remove all emails from one sender. (I have over 17,000 emails unopened that are repetitive junk mail)

Don’t automatically let outlook decide what is junk and what is not. Let us decide. Don’t automatically delete junk email unless we put it there.
Too many junk mail. Better filters

When selecting an email from the junk folder I need to click multiple times to finally get to the inbox. It should be one of the quick drop downs available at the very beginning when moving mail.

This is beyond my job description! This is your job.
One thing might help that you ask users what key words push mail to junk mail.
I use the Outlook app on an iOS device. When I use the iOS Spotlight search (swiping down on the home screen) to do a global search on my device, often there are Outlook Mail entries that show up there. This is awesome.
However, I get a lot of junk mail across my accounts, which also shows up a lot of the time. Basically whenever a query somewhat matches a junk mail I've gotten. This leads to often very vulgar and explicit content being displayed when executing a totally normal search query.
Can I prevent Junk Mail from showing up as a search result in the Spotlight search - or better yet, from being indexed in the first place?

I am constantly deleting junk mail when it should always go straight to my junk folder. I didn’t always have this problem, but this past I have had all of my junk mail in my inbox. I am going to switch to my gmail account for my regular email.
Allow me to easily add emails to a junk folder so they will be sent to that folder automatically after one time of designating the email as Junk.

Block certain junk email
To be able to filter emails that have certain phrases so they go directly to junk mail.
Outlook iOS Junk email folder'handling exposes PII infdormation. This need sto be corrected ASAP.
If you have Outlook on Windows and Outlook on iOS, select one spam mail in the Windows/Outlook junk folder and look at the message in the preview pane (DO NOT MOVE THE MESSAGE TO YOUR INBOX). You see just alphanumeric text and URLs in plain text form underlined and in blue.
Now select and look at the same spam message in the Junk folder in Outlook on iPAD iOS. That message on the iOS device is formatted just as if it were a legitimate message sitting in your inbox - only pictures/images/gifs is missing. THIS IS BAD - The only way for that message to appear formatted is that Outlook (and this is an Outlook mobile/client issue) queried the sending spam mail server to resolve those URLs and perform the formatting. That means the offending spam server now knows that your email address is legitimate because it got a query. Most of these URLs have code ids in the URL that associate your email address. This needs to be fixed. Your email address is being confirmed without you knowing it. Outlook mobile just exposed PII data - your email address is considered PII data and should be protected.
NOT ONLY THAT - you can actually reply to that message while it resides in the junk folder!! Outlook/Office 365/Windows does NOT allow that to happen. If you want to reply Outlook/Windows forces you to first move that message to your inbox. And that's exactly the way it should be. Outlook iOS should have exactly the same behavior.
Junk or spam mail residing in the junk folder on Windows Outlook is treated correctly - you only see the plaintext and un-formatted text and the un-resolved URLS. Outlook mobile clients need to do the exact same thing! This needs to be fixed ASAP.
It is understood that SPAM/phishing/hacking emails cannot be stopped (look at the latest WaWa credit card breach - 30 mil customers exposed - includes email addresses - among other critical PII data). It is going to happen - Outlook/Office 365/WIndows does an incredible job in the treatment of suspected junk/spam/phishing and thus protecting your email address. Outlook mobile does not.
And finally - I've tried many times to get the Outlook mobile team to address this issue - to no avail - for months! Outlook mobile posts updates via the Apple App store numerous times (at times every week) and this suggests the product is not mature or correctly vetted prior to release.
I do hope that this will get the Outlook mobile development team to fix this junk/spam mail behavior within the Junk folder.
A lot of junk mail keeps making it into my inbox. Please fix

block junk mail
Me too having similar problem for no reason same problem Microsoft some is going with you outlook .
Recently several emails that are junk have started coming to my inbox. I haven’t changed any of my settings so I don’t know how they’re getting through. There needs to be a way to only let emails from contacts go to my inbox. Not to mention emails from people that I have tried to add to my contacts still goes to junk mail. There needs to be a setting that allows you to set email addresses as safe or unsafe without potentially opening a scam.
