Better spam blocking
Be able to block by entering key words in the subject. More effective that trying to block just the senders email address
Spam blocking is important, but it's just as important to invest time in learning how to use Outlook.
Outlook has a tool called Sweep for cleaning up your Inbox, you could also create a Rule to delete emails with *** subject line.
As an IT professional that deals with spam/phishing on a daily basis, the best way to reduce these emails is to use an external email filtering service.
I have blocked the same email 50 times this week. They just change their email slightly and do the same again. It’s incredibly frustrating. And i have a paid service from Microsoft.
Spam is not something you should have to block on the end user side of things. Spam filters should be applied properly on your email server if your IT department or email provider does things correctly. I don't think that this is a valid feature request, since if the spam filters were to be properly setup to catch spam before it hits your client, you wouldn't have this issue.

block a part of the senders email address would be helpful
Even with Premium service emails from Bitcoin and others still appear in my inbox. Can we block words rather than email addresses. The spammers are making Outlook look like amateurs.

I hate getting emails from *** solicitors - block ****** content would help me greatly.

Not such a good idea... For instance, I get spam from commercial coffee distributers. So if I block the word "coffee" and get an email with the Subject line "Join us for coffee before the Commissioner's assembly" (or whatever, I'm just saying...) I wouldn't want that to go to spam.

I have been unable to set this up?

Block function never worked as reporting phishing is not honored at all. On cellphones we get more exposed than ever

Agree, however I would like to see a (Return To Sender) Button that would remove unwanted spam/scam/scrupulous marketing emails and return them to their place of origin and auto block the appropriate address. Just like the option we have with snail mail. Blocking is virtually impossible in Outlook as one must be super tech savvy to get around these _______.
