  1. Add regular expressions to rules

    Why is such a simple feature not yet in outlook? I get tons of spam emails that I can block easily if only there was a regular expression feature for rules.. Please add this, it's very annoying. Thanks

  2. Block Junk

    In Outlook under "Quick Settings", "View All Outlook settings", "Customize Actions", "Message Organization", "Message Surface"​ make "Delete" and "Block" permanent after "Save". The current operation is that the Delete and Block functions revert to their unchecked status after a period of time and have to be re-set.

  4. "Rules" aren't working!

    I've set up multiple "rules" to reduce Junk Mail & STILL they're coming. Keto, CBD, etc. And "blocking" their domains is useless because they keep changing them. Also, do you notify them when I block them? Because it seems like the junk INCREASES when I block them!

  5. I

    After so many years using hotmail, in the last months I'm receiving a lot of junk mail. Please do something about it, I got them in the junk mail before, but nowadays it's so disgusting to get all that mail and it takes lots of time unsubscribing from them.

  6. Checking an email should not open it

    I just got a spam mail in my inbox.
    I want to move it to my spam folder without opening it.
    If I click the checkbox, the mail opens.
    I don't like that.

  7. Advertisement preferences are spamming

    Advertisment preferences keep appearing with every loading of the inbox. Even if I make them clear and save them.

  10. block by subject line

    Have you considered blocking spam by subject line. The concept of blocking spam/junk email by address is rendered useless by constantly changing and random generated sender addresses.

    I receive repeat spam/junk emails in the spam/junk folder daily with the same subject line.

    I would find it extremely advantageous to be able to condition "block" to sender address, subject line (including certain words or phrases).

    The scourge of the internet is SPAM JUNK

  11. Blocking

    Before this new style, I had the opportunity to alleviate all unrequired mail to the junk mail, but now I am being propositioned by prostitutes from all over the world. How on earth can someone with the responsibility of a corporate company allow that? Is the only answer to close my account?

  15. Spam Fighters - don't ask for addressed previously flagged Not Junk or Safe Sender

    spam fighters - Spam Fighters should not keep repeatedly asking me if an email is junk if (1) I have already flagged an email from that sender as not junk, (2) if I have already added the email address to my safe senders. I want to contribute to spam fighters, but this basic intelligence should be built into it to stop repeatedly wasting my time.

  17. New feedback

    Since the new look, whenever I mark emails in the Junk Email folder "not junk" they disappear and I never see them again. What's going on?

  18. Outlook should verify the sender domain and add an "untrust" tag in the email title for those strange domain

    I have received too many spam emails every day and they are sent from different domain and they are obviously phishing email. I again and again report spam for different emails and block so many domain but spam emails keep bothering me. I dont know why Outlook cannot filter those spamming email. If this is the case, I have some suggestions.

    Suggestion:
    Outlook can classify the mark an "untrust" tag for the unverified domain, users can design to set up rules filtering these email based on this tag. Also, user can trust the domain and the later incoming email will…

  20. Selection Tick Circle

    Make selection tick circle much bigger. Going through selecting messages to delete, click outside circle and everything selected deselects, then have to start again - getting extremely frustrating.
