Block email in Junk folder
I like the look of the new beta so far but have found I can no longer block emails in my junk folder and that is an important feature to me. Please add back the ability to block senders in my junk folder.
Thanks for your feedback!
You can block a user by selecting a message(s) and then:
- In the junk folder by clicking “Not spam” → “Block” in the top menu bar
- In any folder by right-clicking → “Block”
- On any email item by selecting More actions (“…” menu next to reply/forward) → “Block sender”
Make it work

You know this doesn't work, Microsoft. The spammers just randomly change the email address. They never use the same email address twice. Every spam email address is filled with special characters and random alphabets and numbers up to 30 characters long. Blocking a domain doesn't work either for the exact same reason. You know it just goes to the junk mail. So, we end up missing important email, because it gets buried in the spam in the junk filter box.

4,000 junk emails in one month?
Yeah, you can block it but it comes keeps coming back over and over and over and over and over and over......
I hate the new change in junk mail. Change it back. If I want to block an email address, I want it blocked from my junk mail also. I always have to look through my junk mail to make sure something I don't want in there, is not there. I don't want to have to do an extra step. Plus, it doesn't seem like the program got the block message when they are still there. How would I ever know if I had already blocked something if it keeps showing up? I don't want to have to go looking through a list of all the ones I had blocked to see if I already did it or not and then have them show up again.
I can't even block one at a time any more.
I get a popup that wants me to go to "View Blocked Senders"...
I use to be able to select junk mail to block and select "Block" and gone it went.
Now I'm getting more and more junk mail because I can't block ANY of it anymore.
What happened to this simple feature?
we can only block it if we select it individually. why cant we select all and block? we should have the option to block it all at once.
there is no option to block junk emails. there is only delete.
NOT COMPLETED. The issue is not *where* "Block" is, it's why we get the message that the action cannot be done. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Why??
Admin... He is not looking for a BLOCK button..
He wants to actually BLOCK (eliminate all receiving emails)
Why does the BLOCK button not work on junk mail? Why is there no SWEEP button for junk mail?
Your block feature isn't working, Junk can only be block when selected individually and no more than 6 at a time fix this **** !
Unable to block junk mails.
I can block some of the mails I am having as spam but the most annoying ones I CAN NOT block. Its very annoying. Very disappointed at this side of the outlook.
i receive junk mail that keeps the same prefix but is constantly changing the domain name so that i can never block it. An example of prefix is: drtinnitusmd@ where the domain is constantly changing. can you give us an option to block these reoccuring prefixes to stop them from coming through inspite of them changing their domain name?

Why can't I block junk mail. It tells me that it can't be done for my email address. I am so sick on this new outlook email
Blocking Junk email works sometimes, also some days when it works you can block one email at a time and some times a bunch of them. Today I was able to block 8 emails then it stopped working. Can someone explain or fix this issue. Thanks.
