    Create a rule called Self Send.
    In From, put your email address.
    Mark with Importance High.
    Set Categorize as Warning!
    You'll have a heads-up that it is likely dangerous.
    Not a solution, but a stop-gap until they fix it.
    I also threw you a vote since I've received these as well.

    SPAM SPOOFING my own Email Adress...I cant block it and you wont fix it!!!! Very frustrating!!!

    Stop the nonsense and bring back the old version.

    Need to have the option to block from me to me email address!
    Also, a function of not notifying spammers that they were blocked.

    I have asked that the BLOCK YOUR OWN E-MAIL ADDRESS be put back in place ever since they stopped allowing it from the old original Hotmail accounts.

    I could do it back then, I could also tell the e-mail coming from myself or other addresses I blocked NOT TO EVEN BE DOWNLOADED FROM THEIR SERVER{S}. Both of these options that WORKED have been removed for all these so-called blasted enhancements that ARE NOT WORKING!

    Put the BLOCK YOUR OWN E-MAIL ADDRESS and DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM SERVER OPTIONS BACK IN PLACE!

    When I could use them, my junk mail was cut down to almost ZERO.

    But now I get sometimes hundreds of junk daily and a lot of them are supposedly from MYSELF, yet they can't be, I do not speak any foreign languages, and I do not want, nor do I want to see sexually explicit e-mails with curse words in the subject that supposedly come from MYSELF either. It's revolting and it's disgusting to no end!

    FIX THIS!

    Receiving spoof email using my email address. Can outlook be made to request a password if sending to ourselves? If spoof email received that has not been authorised by password then it is deleted immediately.
