  1. SPAM!

    The amount of spam/phishing emails that are coming through my inbox these days is absurd. What is Microsoft doing to help filter these out before they get to a user? Shouldn't there be some sort of filter in place?

  2. PLEASE HELP WITH JUNK and SPAM!

    PLEASE HELP WITH JUNK and SPAM!

    I am getting A TON of really inappropriate and obviously spam e-mails. Whatever MSN and Hotmail are currently doing to ensure these do not come to our mailboxes (ANY folder, including JUNK - I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS!) is not working. Can I PLEASE speak to someone about this problem. It's been increasing over the last year and I'm really tired of it. It's not appropriate and these are very clearly not "real" e-mails. I do not have time in the day to block individually. PLEASE contact me about this problem. I'm…

    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.

  4. Problem with Subscriptions.

    I unsubscribed individually from dozens of subscriptions in my subscriptions list that I never subscribed to. It took me more than 30 minutes because of the lack of a bulk select button.

    I still cannot unsubscribe from VictoriaHearts 1xwww.gdn or several other craps in my subscriptions list.

    Please stop adding **** to my subscriptions list without my prior approvasl. I did not subscribe to that ****.

    Please let me bulk edit my subscriptions list and select which to block after unsubscribing.

    I also could not select by page the dozens of bounceback emails that I received upon unsubscribing.

  5. Too much JUNK email

    Why doesn't Microsoft use just the actual email sender that is being sent, ie., @so-in-so.com to block? I ALWAYS receive excess junk mail from the same sender with different names before the "@" sign. If we could block all from the sender it would stop much of the junk email we receive. I get more junk/phishing/spam than actual legitimate email. Thank you.

  6. Improve Phishing Detection

    I feel you are failing to provide adequate protection against phishing attempts. I appreciate that under certain circumstances the attacks are sophisticated however I receive a lot of phishing attempts that you really should be able to identify and block.

    Let's look at a real-life example. I received an email from "Apple Support" referring to a purchase I apparently made. The email contains a pdf attachment that includes details of the purchased and a link to click should I want to query the purchase. All the markings of a standard phishing attempt.

    Now let's look at details in the header.

  7. 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"

  9. Why is blocking spam made difficult?

    It's almost impossible to manage spam and unwanted mail unless you are willing to spend a good deal of time searching around the programme and asking for help. No support in particular for blocking domain. Why? It should be made easy unless MS benefits from spammers activities?

  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:

  13. 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!

  14. 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.…

  15. Do not auto open the next email when I mark an email is junk

    If you have marked a mail as a junk mail, the next mail will be opened automatically. That disturbs. I would like to move them unopened as junk mail.

  16. Why do I get junk mail from"subscriptions"?

    I found "subscriptions" as a list of senders that can send me spam even though I request to block those senders. What the heck???

  17. 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.

  18. spam

    SPAM / AUTO-BLOCK and AUTO-DELETE based on crowd opinion.
    - If a X percentage of Outlook users choose to block a particular email sender, THAT email is automatically deleted from your own Outlook email account without you having to see it.
    - Users can set the sensitivity, by choosing how aggressive this 'auto-delete' feature performs. That sensitivity can be chosen based on percentage of Outlook users choosing to block OR a number of Outlook users choosing to block OR a combination of both.
    - Also, because spammers constantly change their sending address, the system would also auto-delete based on Subject…
