  1. 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…

  2. ads in inbox

    I realise Hotmail is for free, I accept that there are advertisements on the side, but please let me know how to remove the ads form the inbox. It's extremely annoying and disturbing to the point that I'm considering moving my email account to a different service. Please let me know if there's a way to stop seeing it or if you're considering to change this

  6. Spam filters and blocking

    I get spam with my email address and two hyphens in front of it. I cannot block them. Please fix this. I do not want these to appear in junk email or deleted Items folders. I do not want to see them

  7. Deleted messages should behave like junk mail, being that any images or links in the messages should not be loaded.

    Because if I open a message in the Junk Email folder, images and links are not loaded, and if I "report" a message as a phish in the junk folder, all it does is go to the Deleted messages, but when I open the same message there, it does actually load the images and links.

    Can you not let that happen? With urgency? Thanks.

  9. 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.

  13. Spam/junk triggering "new mail"

    Can we please NOT have junk mail trigger a "new msg" alert? If it automatically goes to my spam/junk folder, why do I still need to be notified? It's getting very old.

  14. Outlook needs to auto block

    If an email has an random letter/number after the @ symbol. It shouldnt be allowed to go through. Most of the spam emails end like that

  15. 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?

  16. Can't block spam e-mail by e-mail display name

    Can't block by displayed name. e.g.
    App Store <semetoninvoice-7569@spectrume.me>
    I need to block by name "App Store".
    Obviously you can't block by actual e-mail address when you are being spammed. Spammers don't stick to the same address. Please sort this out. This situation is ridiculous.

  18. Turning off spam filter

    I can't turn off the spam filter. A lot of stuff (comment updates from blogs that I DO want) wind up in the spam folder. I'd rather turn off the spam filter totally and handle it in my regular inbox, but have found no way to do that. Goes for both beta and regular version. (In fact, that I can't fix the issue with wanted mails going into spam folder was the immediate reason I decided to test beta.)

  19. Risk when reporting phishing

    When trying to report a phishing email and you click >Junk > Phishing, the dialog box that is displayed next asking to report it opens right on top of the phishng email body. This could be risky as one could miss the dialog box and click right within the phishing email body.

    If possible please make the dialog box open away from the phishing email body being reported. Thanks!

  20. Frustrated

    Hi. What is the point of Microsoft creating a spambox in Hotmail when there already is a junk email folder?????????? Furthermore, this email account has become quite a nuisance with all the spam it allows in. I must have blocked 1000s of emails over the years in this account because the spam quantity you allow in is unbearable!!! I never ever experience this with my google account and their service is much better than yours in terms of what users need to see. Another annoying aspect is when I empty the spambox then it sends everything back to deleted items,…
