I should be able to block senders and domains from my junk folder.
I should be able to block senders and domains from the junk folder--that's why it exists. Currently, I have to copy, then go to Settings, then paste. At least on a Mac, that doesn't work. I try to copy--it says to send to the clipboard, but when I try to paste, it pastes whatever I previously copied--not the email address. So essentially, I can't block anyone. This needs to be fixed now, as spam has greatly increased lately.
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”

I like the new feature of being able to block not just an email address but also the domain when filtering my junk email folder. With more "auto-bots" being used for marketing, having that check box cuts my time significatly.

The spam thing is getting out of hand and the block feature won't work in the Junk email. PLEASE change that!!!!!!
NO YOU MAY NOT BLEND MY COMMENT WITH THIS
I WANT TO BR ABLE TO BLOCK ANY SENDER FROM ANY HOST THAT CONTAINS "APPSPOT" FOREVER, NO MATTER WHO WHAT WHEN WHERE OR WHY IT IS SENT... IF ANYWHERE IN THE ENTIRE EMAIL ADDRESS THE COMBINED LETTERS OF "APPSPOT" APPERS, I WANT IT TO GO TO IN A HAND BACKET WITHOUT MY EVER
E V E R HAVING TO DEAL WITH IT EVER AGAIN(Edited by admin)
Now adding domain name in the blocked sending list is not working properly. it's displaying like saved while adding the domain name, after when i search domain name in the blocked sender list the saved domain name is not listed or not available.
This is worst and i don't know where the domain name got saved.
your team need to give a best solution for this issue.
Earlier we have an option to add domain name level block like
@domainx.com, or email@example.com

Not good. It's too easy for them to change their name or IP address. In order to effectively reduce the junk, it's probably better to be able to block a range of #s like ###.### and all following numbers. Also being able to block words such as "KETO" in the sender's name or heading or subject matter.
I'm bombarded weekly with HUNDREDS of US Junk emails about loans, diabetes, roof repair, ***** enlargement, US health insurance etc, etc. I'm in the UK so I'm utterly sick of it. Sort it out Outlook. There should be a way to block this junk, Pressing Block in the top menu bar does not block this rubbish ! Either sort it out Or add an option where we can block ALL USA emails. That will finally stop the junk mail. Thanks
Safari on Mac Pro-only block is in "not junk" in the junk mail.

Bring back the ability to block senders. I am so tired of all the spam emails . I am australian so why would I want emails about trumpcare.
This is a HUGE problem. I waste an hour a day combing through junk mail in case there is a legitimate email in my Junk folder because I can't BLOCK emails from my Junk folder. VERY annoying. A major flaw. You need to fix this. If I BLOCK a sender I don't want to see an email from this sender again...even in my Junk folder. It's all **** and I don't want to see it.
I agree. Blocking junk is now almost impossible as you have to enter individual email addresses which is very time consuming.
Junk & block mail is a fringing joke
Junk & block mail .all you do is smoke weed and drink camel milk. You don't give a dam about us on outlook. SO camel jock sip
How can I set higher filters on my junk mail? It's ridiculous!

Why do you let spammers with same domain addresses with different first names/numbers get thru when I was trying to block the domain addresses and it doesn't work????
Very annoying to have to block and deleted the spammers emails.
I won't recommended your Outlook services to my family and friends.

Why am I still receiving emails from a blocked sender that I have blocked at least 20 times? The process to block senders and domains needs to be clearer and easier. It's getting really annoying now.
not only has it greatly increased...it is mostly pornographic
Outlook support have told me the following "
I apologize for any confusion caused, however, within Outlook.com - adding a sender to your Blocked Sender's List *only* blocks the emails from arriving in the Inbox. This is because a lot of the times senders are blocked by mistake and we have to have a way to retrieve these messages if needed. With them routing to your Junk Email Folder, they only hang out there for 30 days before they are deleted automatically. You don't even need to touch them, open them, or do anything with them for them to delete on their own."
What is the point of having the option to block the sender if it does not work? Please fix this so I can stop the multitude of spam mail being delivered to me.!
Please add block option directly in Junk Email Folder.
Select all in Junk Email folder doesn't allow me to block all senders (button disappears). Fix it.
