  1. Junk folder becoming to inundated

    20 year user moving to new platform. Flooded my junk box with advertisements now I have to search for any emails that may be of value to me that don't automatically filter to my inbox. It's a shame.

  2. Junk e-mail: block e-mail addresses using wildcards (eg *@*.can

    Junk e-mail: why can't you allow the user to block e-mails using a wildcard and only part of the e-mail address? I receive, EVERY DAY, emails from pharmacy<something>.can and I want to block *@*.can instead of wasting my time to block every single instance, every single day

  3. Obvious spam being sent to Inbox

    Why is obvious spam not going to Junk or being blocked. 42 emails with the same "From" and "Subject" that arrived within 120 secs to my Inbox. These should have been filtered out and deleted or at the very least sent to Junk. Why weren't they?

    We’re sorry people are experiencing issues here. We have gone back to the old behavior for the left-hand folder tree to always show since last year and we hope this has addressed most issues.

    There are some reports in the comments about individual folders not showing up. In order for us to get to the bottom of the issue, please post as much detail as possible in your comments. What steps are you taking? Which browser/computer/operating system are you using?

    Thank you for your help.

  8. Need to block a suffix - not changing domain name

    Won't let me block .icu suffix. Lots of different prefixes - I can't block them all.

    Need to be able to block anything from .icu to avoid large levels of spam.

  9. Incorrect translation in french.

    There's a wrong translation for french in the spam folder. I guess english label to empty this folder is "Empty folder", which has been translated to "Dossier vide" (means "Folder IS empty").
    Correct translation is : "Vider le dossier"

  10. junkmail filtering

    Junkmail filtering on outlook is ineffective to say the least.

    Junkmail works in a few ways.
    - Robots scan the internet for email addresses.
    - Business collect your email for legitimate reasons (like receipts or alerts) but then continue to send unsolicited mail
    - by a robot flooding random emails with a readably sounding senders name, a randomised or misleading email address, misleading body content (usually duplicated from an existing reputable website, and requiring the user to interact by clicking a hyperlink or download an executable.

    Does this look familiar:

  11. Block option

    Could you please add the option "Block" by default for every email received?
    That's a very efficient way to fight spam

  12. rules that work on spam folder

    I am making tonnes of rules to try to cut down on the amount of spam I am getting. I have dozens of rules, saying for certain words to be deleted, but they are still ending up in my Junk Email. The same words being used over and over in the rules, but they are still going through. So your rules are not working what so ever.
    I was told that the rules do NOT apply to emails that are you already direct to the spam folder, that your "spam" rules bypass any rules we make ourselves. That's rather annoying.…

  14. More spam filtering options

    Add "from contains" condition to junk email filtering rules, rather than just the ability to add an email address. Spammers may use different/multiple email addresses but the same words in the shorthand name they use under "from."

  16. Junk Email Deleted Quicker Than Advertised

    The Junk Email folder has a banner saying "Junk Email will be deleted after 30 days" yet it repeatedly automatically deletes things 11 days old. Really not happy!!

  18. junk folder requires me to click on each mail item after deleting

    Why does the junk folder require me to click on each mail item after deleting one? In the non-beta version, I used to be able to delete a junk email and the focus would automatically change to the next email in the junk folder. Now, it annoyingly requires me to click on the next email ("Select an item to read") after deleting. Please fix this!

  19. block partial domain name

    More spam now avoids your detection and our blocking by variation in domain name. example:
    hzoUq1FOXgy@sujtcheshirecontractors.com.au
    Hundreds of emails ending in "shirecontractors.com.au" but prepended with random letters. If your BLOCK DOMAIN just allowed a wildcard template like
    *shirecontractors.com.au
    or even *.au
    we'd have far more control of where we accept mail from.
