Missing Block for un-wanted email in non-junk folders
We’ve now made it possible to block users in non-junk folders.
Select one or more emails and click the “Junk” dropdown in the top menu bar → “Block”, or right-click on the email and select “Block”.
Note: To block users in the Junk email folder, select the “Not junk” dropdown in the top menu bar → “Block”, or right-click on the email and select “Block”.

Open the message in junk (without clicking on any links contained within message of course) and to the top right of the message you'll see a downward arrow (more actions) scroll down the list of options and you'll see "Block....." - BINGO!!

Would like to see the Block function back, too.

The blocked email feature did not work anyway. I have blocked hundreds of emails and gone to the trouble of using the blocked domain list. A lot of work coping and pasting all the bad domain names. Some very long None of it works. I get hundreds of junk emails a day. At this point outlook.com is almost worthless.
My blocked feature on junk folder has gone. It was always there until today. How do I get it back?
Absolutely agree with "Maria Zablockyj"
It just doesn't give the Option/Tab of blocking the Junk Emails anymore, which is very unhelpful and kind of unfair. Kindly DON'T adopt and bring in new settings EVERY now and then as people/users get tired of this non-sense and ultimately stop using the Service. Make it user-friendly or else retrieve to the previous Settings.
Thanks & Regards

I honestly believe that if you make just two simple changes, it will make almost everyone happy:
1) Allow us to block based on character strings in the sender's name, not just address
2) Make the block work automatically on ALL folders (or allow us this option). In other words, if selected, the blocked email should never reach any folder.
I'm a programmer myself. I know that can't be too difficult. Perhaps all incoming mail could go to a temporary folder, and then all rules are applied to the temp folder??? Blocked email would remain in the temp folder and the temp folder could be deleted after all rules have been applied (just an idea).
Keep up with these bad changes and everyone is going to quit using your service. Just plain stupid. Set up something that we can use to permanently block spam/junk/offshore **** mail...or lose us!!!!

I do not like the new arrangement and find that I am unable to block unwanted mail which goes to my junk file, Sometimes the block tab is there then other times it is not, what is going on, also when I have been able to block it tells me I cannot block as it was from myself, ???? please keep it simple as a silver surfer it becomes confusing at times.
Why is it that adding a blocked address makes no difference to whether you receive emails from the blocked sender. They still get through to the Junk mail. Especially bad when most are from **** sites???
I have recently been receiving a LOT of **** e-mail and when I try to block them the message says I cannot block messages from my e-mail address. The ones I can block don't stay blocked. It is disgusting what the subject contents are I can't imagine what the contents are and don't want to. Please do something to stop this type of mail.
its on purpose this feature not working,,,forget behaviour,,, JUst like a Government mail delivery service, once informed junk mail not wanted,,,delivery service is obligated to follow through...If the service does not respond in your request, it can continue to get paid delivering junk....
What have you done with the 'BLOCK' function from the 'Junk' folder??? I want it back ASAP please!!!
I cant block junk mail,please fix the problem
Hate what you have done with your message center. Why can't I block junk mail?

Come on you guys what's this- Cannot perform this action on your mail box- what's the point of having a block option if it won't yet you use it? Please fix it!
With the update, it is preventing me from blocking junk email. Why? Deleting it just means it comes back again.
Where is the block option, it is missing again!!!!
new Hotmail floormat is terrible - option is also gone so they think we have to put up with it. About ready to go elsewhere.
