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”.
To be able to block all junk mails except if on safe senders list
Can't block or delete junk mail?
Your new format is terrible. I cannot block spam????
Blocking emails - no longer able to block. Can just mark as phishing

wtf why the block function in the spam/unwanted mail folder is gone?? fix this!
August 2017...still no bloody response OR block facility!!!
2,300 votes for this post, but Microsoft does not care at all. As reported by some users, the "block" button is now completely gone from the menu line in the junk folder, so one cannot even block emails from the mailbox any longer... This has to be fixed please.

Useless. No response since 8/14/17????

Opening each junk mail to be able to block the unwanted sender, takes much too much time. Please bring back the BLOCK button in the Beta-version of Hotmail. Or let us get back the classic hotmail! Thank you.

Trying to block really bad spam and I now have a message that says "You cannot perform this action on your mailbox. What gives outlook? Fix this!
It appears that the "block" button is gone from the menu line. Do I have to add each address separately now, as opposed to selecting a list from my junk file and blocking them all?
As of today, I cannot block ANY email from my Junk folder ("You cannot perform this action on your mailbox"). This could be a deal-breaker Microsoft. Do you really want to drive users to Gmail that badly?

why cant i block junk mail anymore? it keeps saying i cant preform this action in this folder
1 inbox & a red button to block unwanted email.
Why can I not block junk emails in Beta mode, but I can block the same emails in non-beta mode? I received the message "Cannot perform this action on this mailbox".
junk folder is now near unusable, had to delete over 1000 items.
no way to opt out or unsubscribe from senders
blocking does not seem to work for individual senders, I may not be doing it correctly
all I can do is try to scan for valid senders and move before deleting the entire junk file, if I do not go one line for a week or so, it takes several hours to sort the junk for valid senders and delete
When the count gets to over a thousand I do not have much choice
Gmail seems be free of many junk mail
I am slowly changing to it one by one email contact
I'm getting a "Cannot perform this action on this mailbox" when I select all the messages in my Junk Email folder and try to block them in beta. Is there a fix for this or will there be because I do like the layout of the beta version much better than the non-beta.
