  1. Mark as phishing

    There is no option to mark something as phishing. You can only mark something as "unwanted" (translated from Danish). Even clicking on this is not removing the mail from the inbox folder.

  2. when opening the folder with Junk, it automatically opens the email before even clicking on it

    When opening the folder with Junk, it automatically opens the email before you even decide to click on it, this is a problem since sometimes virus emails could be activated prior to your knowledge of it. Oh, there is no selection for "BLOCKING" the specific emails from arriving in the emails. I am going back to the old program, sorry.

  5. [BUG]Duplicate domains break the spam sender list saving.

    Within the last 2 years in beta, the junk email list has been little broken when it comes to duplicate blocked domains.
    For example, I have emails Example1@example.com and Example2@example.com in the junk list. I edit another one to block the domain "example.com". Then I edit also email "Example2@example.com" to "example.com" so there are 2 same domains in the list. Now I save. It takes a little longer to process. I exit, refresh the page and go back to the junk list. There are addresses "Example1@example.com" and "Example2@example.com" and no domain "example.com". So, The…

  6. Auto Purge Email Address

    Auto Purge Email Address would be a great addition. This feature is on my email at work. It allows you to Auto Purge Emails Address instead of Block.
    The sender never knows you're purging their spam.
    It simply no longer shows up in your inbox or Junk Folder - Its just gone.

    At Work, this had dropped our spam emails to about 15 per week. Down from over 1000.

    The ones that do get through are easy to spot and deal with.

  8. Bring back separated junk email list for domains and full email addresses

    I'd like to have back separated lists in junk emails in the settings. They were there in the last 2 years ago before the whole change into the new look.
    So currently, we have an alphabetical list of all blocked emails and domains but if I want to change emails to only domains it is painful to look the whole list of blocked emails and domains to find if there are left some I want to change.
    Alternatively, you could change the order to email first in alphabetical order and then the domains in also alphabetical order. Not mixed!

  10. Deleted Junk Mail

    Junk email: I like my junk email to disappear after I delete it, not to flood my delete box. This used to be an option.

  11. fix outlook's ineffective email block and pfishing functions

    If ready availability of email addresses with multiple nonsense characters, e.g. *1l4#..., cannot be ended, allow outlook's block and pfishing functions to actually be triggered by more than a set or settable number of such nonsense characters, with possibly an optional double-check of those close to the line. Allow both block and pfishing designations to simultaneously apply to those emails. Pursue the agency responsible to put teeth in the pfishing designation. Their actions now appears to mean nothing to the pfishers.

    I'm overwhelmed with the constantly expanding number of such blocked and pfishing occurrences. I may have to stop wasting…

  13. outlook.com should not forward email to its Users from domains that do not exist

    outlook.com is forwarding thousands of emails to the Users Junk Email folder from email domains that do not exist. If the domains do not exist then outlook.com should block these at the server. outlook.com is literally inviting spammers to spam outlook.com users because they know they can flood everyone's Junk Email folder with domain does not exist !! This is clearly a bug.

  14. 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????

  16. Why did you remove the blocking function from Outlook????

    Why have you removed the blocking function from Outlook???? I want to block spam senders, but now I can't block any address at all. The function is deleted and the function "categorizing" (which I doesn't wabt to use at all) shows up in its place. Also a not needed (as mails will be removed automatically when you block them if the blocking funtion was still there) "Remove" function is shown. Please put back the blocking function in all menus and mails! :( >:( :( >:(

  17. Harder to delete junk mail. Clicked to delete junk mail but end up going into the junk email. Make deleting mail more user-friendly!

  19. Need to change phishing process

    I reported an email as phishing and it disappeared. I actually clicked on it and needed the email for documentation purposes. You shouldn't delete them automatically.

  20. Fix junk email list

    Changes to the list of blocked senders and domains do not save. This has been going on for a long time. No excuse for this.
