Where is the block button in junk mail?
Where is the block button in junk mail? I used to be able to instantly block an address, now I have to open the email, cut and paste the address, and go to settings to block?! I thought updates were supposed to make things easier, not add more work.
Thanks for using Outlook.com!
To block a user from the junk email folder, either:
- Select one or more emails and click the “Not Junk” dropdown in the top menu bar → “Block”
- Right-click on an email and select “Block”.
Note: In non-junk folders, the option to block a user is under the “Junk” dropdown in the top menu bar
Why can' we block unwanted mail anymore the block box have been removed ?

I cannot block spam or send signal as a phishing item.
The block sender option no longer shows in my email, does it still exist?
Can I get it back?
Block needs to be more prevalent.
What happened to the automatic "block" feature to click to block junk senders? It was an excellent feature -- now gone.

Please move the Block function back to the menu on the Junk Folder. I'm getting inundated with Junk Mail and your Rules aren't working on Junk mail. Why did you "fix" what wasn't broken?

Why did you remove/ change the Block sender and make us have to write it in??? That's ridiculous !!!!
Please put it back!!! Instead of making the site easier you're making it more complicated! We get inundated with thousands of junk/scam/ spam and you want us to type in unwanted senders and domains? Lots of juvenile emojis and cartoon icons though huh?
WHERE IS MY "BLOCKING" OPTION?!?!
How do I REALLY block a domain name i.e. clialiedge.com or clialedge.com. I have blocked them, I have reported them as phishing, multiple times. The emails still come through. I would like a block that really works. I would like to block a domain i.e. .de , .hu etc. I don't know anyone in those countries and i don't want their emails. If and I mean IF then I will ask that entity via legitimate advertising and add THAT one to the safe senders. If a domain feels they need to harvest users in bulk then they should police them or I should be allowed to block the entire domain. I got 2 additional clialiedge.com email today and multiple .club...I don't want them either. Get a block system that works, Please!
this is rubbish - can't simply block emails!!!!! rubbish!!!!
WANT TO BLOCK SPAM
I used to be able to block junk mail but with the new system I can't see how to. I am truly offended by the invitations to view naked women or have a special private party with Olga. My junk mailbox has more and more things to sort through every day.
Please enable that handy blocking button that used to be there. It really reduced to repeated trashy junk.
Why did you get rid of the option to Block Sender/Block Domain using the sweep rules? And you can't even block things in the JUNK folder any more. This is ********. Those were the most useful functions in Outlook and what kept you better than Yahoo. No one is going to waste hours entering dozens of Spam domains to their rules. BRING THOSE BACK.
Can't mark junk emails to block sender - the new version no longer has the ability to mark junk emails to block the sender. Since many of these emails come from
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE "BLOCK" FEATURE FOR JUNK EMAIL?!
Junk e-mail blocking is ten times harder now.m Why did you "fix" something that was good and ruin it

Cannot block senders junk
Why not return to the pull down menu and click "block" instead of having to write down unwanted email, go to setting, type in, etc.

I agree, particularly about being able to block emails in the junk folder without opening them. Previous item was marked "Completed", but solution given still opens the emails in the ones that are already in the junk folder. Very serious security issue.
1. Stop the annoying Deleted pop up! It is not needed!
2. Bring back the separate "Bl;ock" Button to reduce clicks to Block spam.
Bring back the BLOCK button!!!
