  2. 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

    How do we keep the old classic Hotmail ? View source should not have been removed from the contextual menu, now you have to open the email and it still doesn't work if you do a select all within the email source it selects the email and the source window text and combines them for a unknown format that can't be reported. Who is QA'ing this stuff ??? I saw the notes, but why do we have to open each SPAM email to view source? Why Can't it be left in the right click menu? I think the issue I…

  4. 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.

  6. 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!

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. SYMBOLS IN FRONT OF ADDRESS

    Blocked senders that continue to send... I have noticed that the senders that I blocked keep sending, BUT... THEY PUT THIS SYMBOL "<" IN FRONT OF THEIR ADDRESS and when I go to add it to the block list, the BLOCK list WILL NOT let me put that symbol "<" in to block it. And that is why I think we are always getting the return of the blocked senders emails... DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO ADD THIS SYMBOL AND OTHER SYMBOLS TO THE BLOCK LIST????

  18. "this isn't spam" - doesn't work

    "this isn't spam" - doesn't work.

    If I get an email from a particular sender/domain that is sent to the Junk Email Folder - then if I click on "This isn't spam"
    then Outlook should stop putting subsequent emails from the same sender in the Junk Folder.
    I know I can add manually to the whitelist, but this should be automatic.
