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.
Same problem here!!! 100's of spam a day now. I've tried all of the filters suggested by the Microsoft "bots"... I can never even get to a real person (kudos if some of you have figured this out!)
Been a hotmail user since the beginning of the internet... Haha. I don't really want to change now as this is my email for everything at this point, but I feel like I'm being forced to. PLEASE HELP!

Have been using this email address for many years. I am getting that much junk email I can't keep up. I got 700 over the weekend of 23-24th Nov 2019.
Have tried to block & tag as phishing with more arriving.
What can I do?????
Spam is unbearable. Receive 100's of email each day and I am so frustrated to get rid of this email altogether. So sad microsoft cant do anything with it.
Block all **** and spam.
There has been a massive increase in junk mail, including phishing mail, littering junk folders. Your forums are being inundated with complaints. Report as phishing doesn't seem to cause a reduction, and that action takes too long to do for hundreds of emails per day. Using block is similarly unworkable. Filtering cannot be set higher from user end without blocking all new senders, which is ludicrous. This has been a sudden colossal increase, suggesting there is a failure in the Microsoft selected/produced algorithms. It appears that vast numbers of people are considering switching to another provider as this issue is being ignored, and only very silly and insulting suggestions are coming from Microsoft.

My junk mail is being bombarded with offensive and scamming email. I keep reporting them as phishing and continually get the same offensive subject lines. It makes it difficult to find actual emails that have been sent to the junk box.
Junk mail has more than tripled, what's going on? To much junk mail!!
I'm gettimg loads of malicious junk. I have contacted Microsoft but it hasn't helped.

STOP SPAMMING ME WITH YOUR APPSOFT SPAM
What happened to the junk mail control??? It worked great for years and all of a sudden has opened the flood gates and I'm getting almost all junk in my inbox.

Does anyone from Outlook actually review these? We are SPOON FEEDING YOU the domains to block and where the problems lie. With all the issues listed on this site, seems like you have VERY FEW that you are actually have listed as 'Working on it' - everything else is 'Under Review'. How do we move this problem of EXCESSIVE SPAM from 'Under Review' to 'Working on it'? This is beyond ridiculous. I hope the kick backs you all get for allowing this much spam to come in is worth it to you all
Receiving Spam emails on my Hotmail account from different email address , I already block some sender but still receiving spam emails everyday atleast 2-3 emails with different email account .
Awaiting moderator approval: Good comment " allow" Reality " block"
Why are you allowing spam emails from appspot.com. They are either fishing scams and or filth related ****. I do not want them in my junk file either. Please apply block filter to junk email and put a stop to this ****. I am getting 50+ emails from this domain and do not want them.

Obnoxious spammer newsletter@(change domain every time) is now using .pw as the extension. Can you please block these people once and for all?
Update your spam filters please. If 'mail' comes from @miste.com it's spam. thanks.
Ok..so there was an option to go into settings and in the search bar type Subscriptions. This then showed a menu that you would be able to unsubscribe from emails that I never subscribed to anyway. This function has been taken away. This means that the spammers have more control of my email account than I do.
You need to provide a better service..or like the others I am out. 33 junk emails since 1pm after clearing double that. (In 7 hours).
Please do something..this has turned into a joke. Give back the subscription function. Amazingly no one at MS has heard of it?!! It was there for weeks and now gone. I know I used it and limited the amount of emails I was getting. Didnt stop them though.
Sort this out!
Most spam emails coming from Amazon Web service. IP address starting, 3-13-18-32-34-35-36-44-52-54-99-100
All those IP numbers belongs to Amazon Web service. Because money hungry Amazon they are supporting spammers. email@example.com kind emails we are receiving more than 50 junk emails a day. Outlook doesn't have any protection, none of them work. They are acting like a loser.
I get over 50-80 emails a day. This past year has been the worse ever and it is leading me to delete my account.
