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.
agree out of control, 100+ day, nothing effective in stopping or curtailing
Rules which are set up to block or delete junk and spam emails do not work. Repeated updates to my rules to block spam and phishing attempts do not work. Keywords and email address block rules do not work.
This mailadress is strangers scammers from internete whose are all the time disturbing my .pc. Please take care

"If Microsoft took phishing seriously perhaps they would consolidate the threads. I've just made three searches, Phish, Phising & Phishing. Over two dozen threads and >7000 votes. That's people who care about quality enough to take the time and effort to feedback to Outlook".
Any unwanted email is one too many.
Perhaps I need to consider myself lucky as I only receive in the region of 200 phishing emails a month.
I get nowhere near this volume if I use gmail, in fact I receive none.
Despite repeated effort on my part to block the senders email address, (the list is near capacity), and to filter my junk folder reporting items as phishing email I continue to receive the rubbish.
It would appear that Microsoft / Outlook do not take this matter seriously and I now consider Microsoft / Outlook to be delinquent and a cause of the issue.
I have started to share any phishing emails I receive with the United Kingdom National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, highlighting that I am receiving the email via Microsoft / Outlook.
The issue is localised to one specific email account I hold which would suggest a long standing common denomiator that Microsoft / Outlook are failing to eradicate. That's despite my sharing feedback via the spam / not spam button. The sender addresses are so very random and non standard, that I don't believe Microsoft / Outlook take this issue seriously.
The option will be to move away from using Microsoft / Outlook products.

After 25 years I have to abandon my hotmail account because i get at least 100 phishing scams with the same word before and after the @ for every legitimate email. I have reported and blocked literally thousands of these with no results at all. Even the subject filters no longer work. The people at Outlook are either very stupid or in on the scam,
Mrs. Elizabeth Allen UK Lottery spam, scam, Phishing...emails in my account...Letting someone know...is the right thing to do...
There is no option in the ios app. There is an option on mobile outlook.com (in safari), but it doesn’t seem to do anything. I can select it 5 times, but nothing happens.

I have received over a hundred phishing emails that are completely different from any that I have received before. They look very professional. I place them in phishing folder and I always check the email address. What is different is that each phishing email adds what is before the "@" to after the "@" and then add a period before finishing the email. Every email is different. Examples: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org . I am sure less savy customers may click on their links. You must have noticed this by now.

Unable to report Phishing emails when the email contains a running banner or something that is animated.
How to classify an email as phfishing ?
I am really angry that I cannot block emails or report any as phishing in the junk folder. The only options left are "delete all" or "mark all as read".
I have received a dangerous email purporting to be from amazon (it isn't) about an unread message asking me to click on it. That needs to be reported

Would like blackmail button added to Spam options. I have received over two dozen blackmailers saying they've hacked camera and filmed me watching ****. Yeah right... they should see my laptop - paper over camera and always has been there! But they can email a child who has been exploring ****... children/young adults have killed themselves over this sort of blackmail. So - I want a specific 'this is blackmail - a criminal offence' button and I want you to keep records of where so many emails might be coming from. Microsoft etc have a responsibility to ensure internet/email is safe from predators/thieves.

I'd really like the mark as phishing option to be more easily accessable, put it back in the initial menu where you can mark as spam
you high lite say 6 items in inbox as phishing scam and click delete and nothing transfers to the deleted file
Report phishing scam is not showing up in the inbox. We need this to be front and center so we can easily report them. Must be in a easy to see area. It is currently not showing up even when it's checked off in settings.
Report Phishing Scam

New Outlook version no longer wants to know about phishing attempts. Is this just because you want to make sure that we know that you no longer care about anything?
