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.
Sometime hidden characters obstruct the operation. I've been able to make it work on Windows by pasting the address into notepad first which allows a cleaner paste when copying from notepad into the domain list. Making sure to remove > or any other characters leaving only the domain address. If it works, it should present your paste into the viewed list right at the top. Sometimes it'll auto sort which to confirm is to simply check the current list by using search for the domain you're trying to add. I'm sure Microsoft will come up with a more fool proof way of doing this but for right now, that works for me. Most times I'll stack a list of additions in a notepad file and do them within one session. But you're right. Blocking domains is the best way to foil a spammers activities.

Why can't I block senders anymore?

It would be great if you would add a button to "block all emails from a domain" instead of having to click through several buttons to do this. Yes, I get a lot of spam and blocking certain domains helps eliminate them. Thanks!

The junk folder is acting like the regular inbox. I can't block emails. Instead, it gives me an option to "Mark as Junk." I also cannot mark emails in the junk folder as "Not Junk."
