Problem with Subscriptions.
I unsubscribed individually from dozens of subscriptions in my subscriptions list that I never subscribed to. It took me more than 30 minutes because of the lack of a bulk select button.
I still cannot unsubscribe from VictoriaHearts 1xwww.gdn or several other craps in my subscriptions list.
Please stop adding to my subscriptions list without my prior approvasl. I did not subscribe to that .
Please let me bulk edit my subscriptions list and select which to block after unsubscribing.
I also could not select by page the dozens of bounceback emails that I received upon unsubscribing.
Hey all! I’m sorry to hear that you’re experiencing these problems. Outlook does not subscribe you to any subscription emails, so these emails are from other senders who have your email address.
We do allow you to bulk-select your messages.. above all your emails at the top, there is a gray circle with a check inside it. Click this circle and it will turn blue, and you will select all emails in the folder that you are currently in. See the attached photo for more details.
You should be able to unsubscribe to these individually by clicking a link on each unwanted email. Alternatively, you can block the sender in settings by going to Mail > Junk email > Block Senders. https://outlook-sdf.office.com/mail/options/mail/junkEmail
We’ll also be releasing a feature soon which will let you manage all of your subscriptions from inside your Outlook.com account… Stay on the lookout!

Microsoft is adding spam emails to my "Subscriptions" list without permission. All of a sudden I'm getting tons of junk email. Then I find out that somehow MS has allowed these hackers to add themselves to my "Subscriptions" list. I delete them and block them and add them to my clocked domains. BUT within a few hours or days they add more emails to my subscription list.
Q: HOW CAN A HACKER ADD THEMSELVES TO MY SUBSCRIPTION LIST AND MICROSOFT CAN'T PREVENT IT?
Thank you! My subscriptions list has been wiped clean of all the spammers and only the legitimate subscriptions have been left behind. Job well done!
I agree. each day. Outlook adds spam entrees to my "Subscriptions" list, in "Settings/Mail/Subscriptions.". If you can't stop spam from populating my "Subscriptions" list, please design a way to delete all of the spam on that list at one time. Every time I delete all spam subscriptions, they return w/in 30 secs. UGH
Every day Outlook adds hundreds of spam entrees to my "Subscriptions" list, in "Settings/Mail/Subscriptions.". It takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to individually remove each piece of spam each day. If you can't stop spam from populating my "Subscriptions" list, please design a way to delete all of the spam on that list at one time.
Not happy with MSN email commented
i shouldn't have to unsubscribe from something i have never subscribed to in the first place. bulk selecting selects the email that i actually want to read as well
Colin... that's totally not what the problem described here. This is not a problem with selecting email. This is in SETTINGS, Subscriptions, shows a list of "Subscriptions" supposedly. To the right of each individual subscription is a "Unsubscribe" option that possibly takes you to a malicious page. To the right of that is a ellipsis (three little dots "...") button that opens popup to "Block Emails", that when selected opens yet another popup to confirm you want to block emails... There should be a way to select multiple subscriptions and either unsubscribe or block emails from them. But I am ever more convinced of Microsofts love for hackers and disdain for users by this and many other "features" of Microsoft products that . make it harder for users to protect themselves.
Hey MS you're reply is terrible - Outlook is adding the subscriptions not the users!

Same issue for me. This started a couple weeks ago when I unsubscribed from two newsletters I had actually sign up for. Not sure if related. After that I'm getting 4-5 spam emails everyday. For example, Dogbreedscenter.com. Can't do anything other than block but then they keep coming back! I'm seriously considering closing my email address, which is my main one.
"Outlook does not subscribe you to any subscription emails..."
Come on, start off by lying to us? WE certainly didn't manually subscribe to every junk email on the planet.
"We do allow you to bulk-select your messages.."
That is off-topic, 'admin', try to keep your support response related to the issue at hand: Subscriptions.
"You should be able to unsubscribe to these individually by clicking a link on each unwanted email."
That was LITERALLY the first thing the OP said that he spent 30 minutes doing this. You're now wasting everyone's time.
"We’ll also be releasing a feature soon which will let you manage all of your subscriptions"
Is this you, tacitly implying that you are INDEED managing our subscriptions for us?
Just allow us to turn off Subscriptions!
I have to log into every account I own just post this comment??
Why are these subsciptions automatically being added to my subscription list?
Please let us know when you get this feature. This is madding! All of this vile crud over and over!!! I unsubscribe over and over and it is a waste of time and effort. I do NOT want this stuff! PLEASE :)
Outlook subscription is **** from what I see. Each time I delete those ****** senders they come back onto my subscription list and then I have to individually click the 3 dotted symbol to click block sender...only for them to come back. Don't even try to click unsubscribe from them. It will only direct you to another scam website not related to the supposed described email to have you confirm your email does work for them to keep doing it. Really try to use specific internet server addresses to permanently delete these email senders.

Is anyone having issues with bulk blocking? I select all the emails in my junk folder, click block, then ok, then all it says is 'view block senders' but doesn't delete or block anyone. Help anyone?
Just sent a hour un-subscribing people that I have never signed up for to them go back in and I've wasted a hour because they are back on there! please sort this out!

@Joe Gregson ---MF'ing DITTO-DITTO-DITTO ... MSN, I have had this account since hotmail was still just "Hotmail"... over 20 years... you guys came in and all went to s***... If so many did not have my address here, I would have left a long time ago... I have very, very low expectations for your service, and you never disappoint on that at least... horrible this situation.. horrible...

Safe senders are routinely going into Junk, and the Subscriptions list is full of hundreds of bogus addresses that I never added but that allow Junk to go to my inbox.
These features are working so badly that it would be better to not have them at all. What a mess!"
Nancy Legere commented
Obviously the feature the outlook moderator said would be released soon hasn't been done. I'm getting 50 to 60 spam mails per day relating to these **** subscriptions that I never subscribed to. You're going to tell me that with all the technology today someone can't come up with a fix. yes they are all going into my junk folder but I don't have time to go through all to see if one truly isnt junk. Fix it, fix it, fix it
Same issue here.. no matter how many times block / unsubscribe they get automatically added again :-(
Any solution that works??

Maybe a better title is 'Unauthorized Spam Subscriptions'? I have the same issue. I receive a lot of spam from repeat offenders. I have to manually add them to the spam/blocklist as the shortcut is ineffective. To add insult to injury and as mentioned a multitude of times already, the subscription list has almost 800 junk emails listed. The titles seem innocuous enough, but the origin emails are spam. The lack of functionality sounds like a significant oversight for Microsoft. The bigger problem comes when I delete; no unsubscribe, the subscription, it should be added to the spam list. True to form, it is not. To make matters worse, if you log out and log back in, all the deletions you made are null and void. It's like a friendly middle-finger to Outlook.com users (worst Easter Egg Ever). The entire list remains whole. So, my solution of manually adding them to the spam list since they are neither deleted nor added to the spam list. Truly the gift that keeps giving. Oh, and the spam filter is useless. I will use one of the spam emails as my "personal" email for future MSFT forums since they have done everything within their power to ensure we keep the spam flowing. Thank you for the upgrade MSFT. At least the stock is doing well. Cheers!
I have tried the solutions you have offered. 99 percent are emails that I have never subscribed to in the first place. There is a vulnerability in the subscribed feature. " Legitimate" newsletters, I can easily unsubscribe to, however, there are multitudes of them, that are virus ridden pages that put my computer at risk, or the page does not exist in order to unsubscribe. I hate this feature.

When I go under 'SETTINGS > VIEW ALL OUTLOOK SETTINGS > SUBSCRIPTIONS I see a lot of 'subscriptions' that I never asked for and am unable to 'UNSUBSCRIBE' from. Is there a way to delete these subscriptions or any way to stop any subscriptions from attaching themselves to my account?
