Am I wasting my time reporting emails that I suspect are phishing emails? Every single day I report 2-5 emails and they are continually the same type and many are from the same sender. If I am wasting my time....LET ME KNOW so I can stop reporting these emails.

Hi, I receive many e-mails that are obvious phishing attempts. These e-mails are rightly in the junk folder, and I always report them as phishing - even attempts that are made on behalf of Microsoft (-.-). However, I do not see any improvement and I am tired of always reporting phishing attempts. Please make sure that these phishing e-mails are not delivered: I do not want to see them - not even in the junk folder. I think that gmail is more advanced on this topic.

I'm really fed up with reporting fake Paypal messages saying 'my account has been restricted' as phishing. I've done this hundreds of times and the messages are so obviously fake, I can't understand why your AI hasn't got on top of them.
Fix your spam filters.. MY god. I've been getting the same **** from 'paypal' for months, obviously phishing, and have reported at least 100 of them as junk. Seems like your filters should have learned by now, but nope! I'm still getting the extremely obvious phishing emails almost daily.

Why do you give us an option to report Phishing when we still get the same scam that has been reported time and time again over the last year or so. Your'e not going to do anything then remove the submission button.

iTunes, Amazon and other similar companies would have a single email address that their messages come from. Why not contact them for the said address and block all the other ****, so simple and obvious but hasn't happened. Why not?
Does this feature even work? Does anyone even work in this department anymore?

I keep reporting phishing. Then many of the same phishing schemes show up several times a day, every day. If you aren't stopping it, why bother to report it?
WHY can't we go in and BLOCK the particular websites that are sending this garbage?
Does it do any good to report spoofing to Abuse or phishing on the drop down? I have been doing this daily but *crickets. It is like you are not even trying. Here will just blow up your spam folder and not allow you to block JUNK.

I get to much phising mail in my mailbox! I receive atleast 4 phising e-mails per week. Please fix it!
Phishing scams. What is the point in reporting these if you are still going to let them through.
I'm a clearly being targeted by phishing email. I've reported 40 odd in the last few days. Why haven't you done anything about it as I am still getting them from the same senders?
Does reporting an email as "phishing" actually get reported and followed up on? I reported a phishing attempt and an hour later I get the same email trying to phish again.

contI am VERY TIRED OF CONSTANTLY RECEIVING FILTHY TITLED **** JUNK EMAILS ! I deleted them, put them into "Phishing mode", and shortly thereafter I get a "slight variation" of FILTHY ****, MUCH LESS DENTAL - DATING for SENIORS - and Loan EMAILSact

I'm getting a ton of spam emails a day that are phishing requests. I report many of them but have seen zero reduction. This is my primary email address and I'm now thinking I may have to transfer to a new email account and provider if this doesn't stop.
PHISHING - I report 40 or more phishing emails per day and every day I get 40 more. Why won't outlook stop these from being delivered. they are dangerous. fake emails address and asking you to open a web site from the email. that is phishing if I every saw one. DO SOMETHING PLEASE. STOP THESE FROM DELIVERY. THEY SCARE USERS AND SENIORS ESPECIALLY.
The spam/phishing filter is useless. I keep getting phony invoices and click-me emails from Apple (that doesn't have my email) that I keep labeling as phishing and spam...but they keep coming at least twice a week. Gmail forever!!
phishing report:YOUR ACCOUNT WIIL BE CLOSED ETC message in this account please check it oit
I don't want to report phishing emails anymore b/c every time I do it seems that I get a ton more and they are more sophisticated. Is there anything that can be done about this? Until this is fixed it seems that Blocking is the best option in order to eliminate/decrease spam/phishing mail.
