Hotmail/Outlook- Mail > Subscriptions > I can not delete newsletters I did not subscribe to
Under my settings>mail>subscriptions - there is a ton of newsletters/junk email/spam that I never added and can not delete. I don't know how they got there and how can i remove them.
No matter what I've tried to delete these it doesn't work - spammers latched themselves this way?
We’re working on this, and should have an update for you in September!

The Block is not working, Why?
I'm getting a 100 junk emails a day trying to hustle me for *** or to look at naked pictures. They use 30 random characters or more and change the email address characters daily, so blocking does no good. I've noticed they're mostly from an apptspot.com location. Why don't you have a filter to filter out these obvious scams for money?

I am unable to Block emails that are in the Junk Folder.
Its seem like the "forward" tab will not work . My original outlook I can forward a message but now I can not because the foward tab is not activated?
Iwant my old versionback.
Unable to block Junk email. I have to copy each and every addy to add. And, when I do block it it still comes through not only as JUNK but in my INBOX! Also you are permitting SUBSCRIPTIONS to be added to MY email without my knowledge that CANNOT BE REMOVED and from sites my Malwarebytes BLOCKS BECAUSE IT IS A MALICIOUS SITE! Fix it!
What was Microsoft thinking of when it allowed subscriptions to be made by email address alone with no other password or form of security? You have created a spammers' charter. It's taken hours of hunting even to find out why nothing was working against all the spam - and it was because you, Microsoft, had given it all protected status and hidden it away in 'subscriptions'. No amount of blocking works because the spam is all re-subscribed by bots using instantly generated alternative sender addresses. Users have been complaining about this for more than 6 months and nothing has been done. I think I will have to change my primary email address now, at great inconvenience, and I no longer have any confidence in Microsoft products.

Recently all of the sudden I am receiving TONS of phishing scams when I have not even handed out this email address in a looooonnngggg time. Numerous subscriptions that I never signed up for....many are duplicates with different urls. There needs to be an option to BLOCK ALL instead of individually.
Agreed. Please help. I am now receiving over 200 spam emails a day. I have never had this problem before. I am considering closing my account and moving to Gmail, because I am spending so much time on deleting these.
Under my settings>mail>subscriptions - there is a ton of newsletters/junk email/spam that I never added and can not delete. Can you get this fixed to unsubscribe and delete these!!!
Outlook should be a leader in blocking and filtering spam like this but they are not. I can only conclude that they are in on it and profit somehow.
I have had my email address for 25 years and it is next to useless.
If I could I would delete it all together.
Too many subscriptions that I never signed up for and many are duplicates with different urls. Pain in the neck to have to block them all individually.

Re: Subscriptions. STOP automatically adding addresses to this highly unnecessary section of Outlook. Users should consent to which addresses are or are not included in this listing, should they wish to activate the feature. My 'Subscriptions' is FULL OF SPAM SENDERS, of which YOU Microsoft, have automatically added to my Subscriptions WHEN THEY OUGHT NOT BE THERE. I am completely unable to remove them, I can unsubscribe or block, BUT I want them deleted BECAUSE YOU PLACED THEM THERE WITHOUT MY CONSENT. AND AGAIN Microsoft, to be completely clear, I am providing YOU and you alone with this feedback NOT uploading it to a forum or a thread for open discussion. So AGAIN, do NOT add it to a forum or thread as that is not what I am doing, I am merely giving you feedback on how **** your mail service is.
I am being spammed by upwards of 50 emails a day, I click delete on the subscriptions, they just come back, subscriptions needs removing, its a stupid idea that just aids spammers.
For users in Australia forward the spam emails (without adding or removing anything, just a straight fwd) to firstname.lastname@example.org for enforcement. Seeing as Microsoft don't give a sh!t about flooding our accounts with unsolicited spam nor letting it attach itself to us permanently as a SUBSCRIPTION we did not subscribe to, we can use this angle until Microsoft lift their game.

This is Horrible! There is so much spam that it is looking up my Outlook app on my PC. How can this opening be allowed within this service. It has never been this bad before.
Please add disable option to Mail and allow "Subscriptions" / "Manage subscriptions" to be disabled.
When option is enabled, it should purge the list and then prevent anything from being AUTOMATICALLY added to it.
This will allow time for what ever bug is allowing this list to be updated without authorization to be investigated and fixed.
Please help keep our inbox safer.
I know you are working on this, but I just counted 476 subscriptions on my list of which only 56 have I actually subscribed. Hoping this is resolved soon as I am getting 40 or more unwanted spam mail a day filling up my junk mail folder. I missed an important email due to sifting through all the mess.
Hurry MS, this is unprofessional!
Questo problema avviene anche a me, ho 3 indirizzi mail di phishing che si sono aggiunti nelle sottoscrizioni e che non riesco a rimuovere. Speriamo si risolva il problema!

How long does it take before MS realizes this 'feature' just doesn't help anyone and saves tons of crapware addresses that any sane user neither wants or needs.
Shame on you MS for not fixing it. This feature proves my late mother-in-law's thesis that there are a lot of 'book idiots' out there! You may lots of tech knowledge but you are sorely lacking in common sense! PLEASE fix it!
