Apply rules within junk folder
I have to sort though TONNES of emails in my junk folder to check if anything important went there by accident. These all have the same subjects (viagra, loans etc...) but are from different addresses / domains so they are impossible to block.
If rules could be applied to the junk mail folder this would save a huge amount of time.
Yes, please allow rules to be applied to the junk folder. Like another commenter, I never got spam but in the last few months have been getting absolute loads daily, most of them from the same domain. I am fed up with this. Blocking them does not stop them coming, and as genuine emails go to junk as well, I don't want to have to sift through all the spam to find them. Either blocking should send them straight to the deleted folder and allow us to block a whole domain, or rules should work on the junk folder as well. I'm sure this would be an easy enough change for outlook and would help us all a lot! If something doesn't change here, I'm moving from outlook, which will be a nuisance as I have had my address for decades, but it's even more of a nuisance putting up with this pile of spam and no way of stopping it.

I’ve had my email address for over 20 years and have had no big problems with junk mail. Over the last few months the settings have changed and I’m now getting over 100 emails a day into this folder. Some of my important emails have slipped into there in the past despite being from regular senders so I would check in there once a week. This is no longer feasible as my junk email is over 1000 for the last week alone! Please change it back to how it used to be to save everyone the hassle of getting a new email address with a different company.
There’s no easy way to blocking specific email addresses from devices like iPhone or iPad.
You’ll notice from any computer, options allow users to sort junk directly to junk folder by creating automatic rules users create. Currently we’re deleting lots of junk daily and have to use our computer to set rules. There’s no option to set rules from within application
Please, let’s make this happen
