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.

I've also had my hotmail account for about 20 years and I have definitely noticed a huge influx in spam just in the last few months. There are still some emails I actually want that are being sent to junk mail despite adding them to the safe senders list and marking them as not junk, so I have to constantly comb through everything to make sure nothing has been missed. It's so frustrating. I am seriously considering changing providers, but it will be a daunting task. I have so many accounts linked to this address it's going to take forever to reassign everything to a new one. I really would prefer to keep my current hotmail account, but if this issue doesn't get fixed soon, I may have no choice.
It could easily be 150 spam messages in my junk mail folder today, with still almost 2 hours left in the day. How are users supposed to get any work done if we have to spend all day reviewing spam messages to make sure there aren't legitimate messages in the junk folder from senders who we haven't yet added to our safe lists? Please fix the spam.
Huge increase on the amount of junk mail. Up to 100 pieces of trash mixed in with my important messages.

A lot of the spam that MS allows to infiltrate theur server is actually dangerous phishing. The fact that you have done nothing for years makes you COMPLICIT.

The amount of Junk e-mail is becoming tedious, Is Microsoft doing anything about it, or do I have to abandon the platform so that I'm not buried in Junk Mail?
I can't believe the amount of junk mail that I receive. When I check block or phishing, it doesn't do any good. Will go with gmail soon.
hotmail has too many junk mails in the junk directory. there one hundred of junk per dar.
How can it happen?? your software group can not fix this problem?? the services getting worse. Please take care. otherwise hotmail can not be used!!
Did you sell my Email address to spammers?
Too many junk, phishing and spam mail coming through, what are you doing about it? This is insane. No matter how many times you block or tag phishing same stuff keeps coming in volumes. Brutal!
Need to control BEFORE outlook sends to Junk folder. Seems simple, but I'll be changing platform if it doesn't happen soon.
Junk mail is out of control. Foul content. NEEDS to empty everyday.

Now I am getting 200 to 250 phishing emails every 24 hours in my junk mail box.
Problem being I have to go through all of them to make sure a good email is not
in the batch. I know you have answered this in different ways BUT I still think the
best way to handle this is to have a phishing email box which would have email
addresses that outlook will NEVER SEND to my junk mail box. This box would have
the same features as junk mail box SO THAT any email address could be taken off
the phishing list. This way the junk email filters will still catch good and bad emails
BUT the marked as phishing will never show up.
AS a 2nd option
How about making a phishing email box were when emails marked as phishing
go automatically. That way the junk email box will only have a few emails and
the phishing box can be reviewed and then deleted at a later date. This would
save a lot of time and the review could be done when I have time.
I appreciate your help.
I am not the only one that has this complaint.
As I typed this I noticed that I now have 6 phishing emails in my junk mail folder which I cleared
before I started typing.
Txs again, John

since approximately 2 weeks there is an markable increase in Junkmail. Normally there has been around 5 Junkmails per day...now I receive around 75 per day....the server adress shows its coming from bots...this should be prevented. It makes it more and more difficult to find the wanted emails because just my contacts end up in the inbox directly.
I'll join in! The amount of emails getting into my junk box is ridiculous. I went from hardly getting any to 30+ a day. All sorts of scams and *** related garbage. My rules are apparently useless. Fix this! Something has changed. Surely this could be figured out.
Is there a Microsoft fix? :)
Outlook has become complete garbage. You can't block anything unless it's something important. Otherwise reporting or trying to get any assistance from Outlook is NULL. Each day I get twice the amount as the previous day and the more I contact Outlook (only to be ignored) the more I get. ALL FROM THE SAME SPAMMERS. Outlook seems to be selling out emails and ALLOWING this to happen.
I'm just adding my agreement to the growing pile. I too have had this hotmail address for twenty-plus years, and the amount of junk mail making it into the inbox these past months is astounding. Something has definitely changed. And I'm also having trouble with the "Spam filter" emails; any time you click yes or no on them, it shuts the program down. I have to open up a new browser to get back in (from Chrome to Firefox). I want to stay loyal to Microsoft just because I've been with them for so long, but this is getting ridiculous.

Are you seriously going to tell me that you can't figure out that of8255WO-eOuw-TT9F-gkfR-vfR0YyxJGNP5@TT9F.trardapy.top is not a valid e-mail and should be caught by your SPAM filter (IF you even have any). DO YOUR JOB
