    outlook or hotmail's block system does not work properly. although i block, spam and phishing emails keep coming from the same server or ip addresses. the same with the marking button for phishing or spams, nothing changes !... i guess, these buttons are totally phsycological, not functional at wall. i guess, outlook or Hotmail has no security system against spammers and phishers, they just try to look like so….

    Does the Block option in the "Not Junk" drop down actually work? I've added senders and still get emails from them in Junk folder. Shouldnt they not show up anywhere in any folder if they are blocked?

    There is no blocking for Hotmail, when can this be implemented to do what the name indicates???? Now it is just a name and button. If it is there now how long does it take for it to work ?, I have been blocking the same things for years.

    I keep getting emails from accounts I've blocked or reported for phishing activity. I'm to the point where I want to close this account up c

    It all sees rather haphazard.
    Blocking some sites appears to work but not others.
    Then sometimes sites that were blocked seem to reappear

    BLOCKED EMAILS does not work. I block 50 to 100 spam emails a day and the bext day they are there again. OUTLOOK, why bother to give us the choice of blocking an email when YOU do not do so.

    Please really stop emails from showing up in mt email, if you cannot or will not block unwanted incoming emails then let me know !
