Too much junk / spam: Junk folder becoming to inundated
20 year user moving to new platform. Flooded my junk box with advertisements now I have to search for any emails that may be of value to me that don't automatically filter to my inbox. It's a shame.
Too much junk mail. How do I stop this nonsence. I spend about an
hour deleting Junk. PLEASE STOP IT.
Spam/Junk/Phishing problem has become much worse - they go straight into Focus Inbox and I have to manually delete them daily.
It's obvious it's phishing and NOT from Netflix, Paypal, banks etc.
Other email services can filter these out with no problem - what's the matter with Microsoft? Will have to change services ...
I set a rule that redirects any incoming email from datapound.club back to datapound.club. I stopped getting emails from them.
Glad to know im not the only one getting a million spam/scam emails everyday, but also sad that you all have to go through this **** too.
IS THERE NO WAY MICROSOFT CAN DO SOMETHING? Seriously, I mean even for stuff like Netflix scams with the n accented like
They cant tell that, that isnt actually netflix?
I'm so done with scammers and phishing emails!! I receive tons of them everyday no matter how much I block/report them!!!
Tired of it commented
I have blocked 85 emails from datapound.club. It’s ridiculous that something like this is allowed. As of today I have a total of 150 blocked emails due to phishing scams.
ı creat rule for not to receive mail from this. but rule is not working
WTF received 20 Spam in my Inbox and 500 in my Junk folder! It’s been so good for so long until the last 5 days!

Absolutely getting ****** off with this email service. The last week I’ve been getting anywhere between 10-20 junk emails to my inbox every day

The amount of spam I received went down drastically in the last few months and I thought Microsoft finally got on top of the problem.
I was SO wrong. Maybe the spammers got COVID, and now they're back in full force.
Yesterday and today I'm being inundated AGAIN with the SAME spammers and the SAME subjects using the SAME email formats:
from@(different domain every time)
info@(different domain every time)
newsletter.(numbers or letters)@(different domain every time)
office@(different domain every time)
PLEASE do something about this ****. I've tried many ways to block this stuff but nothing works. But I shouldn't have to block it because it shouldn't get into my or anyone else's mail in the first place.
This thread is over 1 1/2 years old and people are still registering the same complaints. What are you doing?
Deanna Foong commented
Still getting a lot of explicit spam mail and scams despite the rules I've set to auto-delete and my blocking senders. I don't have this problem with other free email providers or my ISP email account.

NationalConcealedAcademy.com <fXmZKXy@datapound.club> and someone needs to take note that carrying a gun in the UK is not legal. I live in the UK and now sick of Outlook allowing spam emails not only in my JUNK folder but also been allowed to get into my INBOX.
You complain to an adviser to be told "our tech teams are doing everything they can to change to deal with this matter" six years I an many others have complained about this matter and it get worse. I use Gmail and get no SPAM emails where Outlook anything up to 20 SPAM emails daily that is no joke.
I have started emailing companies such as Paypal, Asda, Morrisons ect ect telling them their trading names are being used to try and scam people and that Outlook are doing sweet bugger all to stop it.
I am also in contact with the police and my local MP to try and see what they can do. If it was me and knowing that my work force was rubbish at doing their job they would soon be looking for a new one.
Get it sorted NOW before you all at Outlook/Microsoft will be looking for a new job as users are sick of your lies.
No one takes the time to express congratulations to Microsoft for making the whole world feel so useless. They are allowing spammers to rule without providing users with the necessary tools to stop them for being nothing more than a total annoyance. I would like to congratulate Microsoft for being so able to show us thatchy are the boss, and that we have to let them rule. I understand now that we have no say, and that what is good fir Microsoft is good for the planet. There are thousands of comments in this world where just a few dare express an opinion, and yet that changes nothing. Long live the king.

Really getting sick of the amount of blatant phishing attempts getting through. All it is netflix and paypal...message source seems to indicate they are using google servers. I'm going to have to change my email address for those accounts so I can filter this stuff....why is this dragging on for SO long?

Why give me the option of reporting Scams and Phishing emails when you do nothing with the information.
junk filter could stand an update, any address that contains random keybashing is 99.9% chance to be SPAM or worse, an attempt at phising. i would aslo like to see the option to block entire domains reteurn.
It's quite **** simple Microsoft. Allow the user to block Domains traffic.
It's no different than a firewall not allowing traffic coming from X.Y. Z from a macro perspective.

I have the same problem ! I am fed up with that mail service. It's unebearable. Plus the helpdesk never answers my questions. There is no real solutions as hackers and other firms are able to get my address without asking... I would like to get all my e-mails back so I can change completely and quit Outlook services.
What has happened to your spam filtering these days? Some of the most glaring spam (e.g. subject line: "###Bitcoin_Neeews!@@$$!") is now ending up in my focused inbox. It never used to be like this. Gmail calls, perhaps??
spam - still the same. The domain that sends me email for couple of years is as of today by Microsoft decision SPAM.
