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.

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. firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
60+ junk emails a day. I've created rules that apparently don't run automatically. When I choose to manually execute the rules in the Outlook desktop client all the junk gets deleted. But Outlook online is my primary method for checking mail and the rules don't run automatically there, or at all. I would change to gmail in a heart beat if I didn't want to go through alllll the places where my live.com email address is already registered. Please help us all.
138 spam emails from ones I have either blocked or unsubscribed to. Who is selling my email address? I voted several times. Your reputation is on the line with Individuals, we are not part of the 20 million that made news this week. Individuals Have a Say in what comes to us as Junk my
As of this comment there are 749 comments with 1632 votes. Another similar thread concerning the huge amount of spam, junk, phishing, por*, spoofing. has just as much. Many good suggestions have been given ALL are frustrated!
Outlook/hotmail/microsoft is doing nothing.
Block really means delete. Send it all to junk folder. Look at the definition of Block....It is block from inbox and send to Junk.
Where it will automatically be deleted after 30 days. Hmmmm There is NO WAY I would leave thousands of emails in my junk folder to slowly be deleted.
The **** (Outlook will probably * it out) has gotten more obscene and descriptive. F word used doing things with various body parts. I would hate for my 6 year old to open up one of these nasty emails. I think there should be another place to report these emails to hook up with people for ***. How about a *** trafficking hotline???
In the last week or so the Junk has doubled. I open my computer and have over 70 every morning. More come before I can delete those 70. And continue throughout the day. Most of the emails I have been receiving are from "support(varies).de" apparently de is from Germany.
For months I have complained, suggested, blocked, reported as phishing and abuse, given feedback, commented, voted, and emailed Outlook.
Gee it is almost as if they do not care :)
Worse I believe they may be profiting from this garbage.
What gets me is they have the time to put our comments under review! Wow why don't they review the JUNK MAIL instead???Just a thought! And I put my email address down here and my junk mail might double again.
Never-mind It does not seem to be accepting my email address as being valid.
Wow the incompetence is great with Outlook.
j'ai de + en + de courriers indésirables...vraiment j'ai bien beau les bloquer mais ils reviennent toujours !!!comment m'en débarrasser....merci

Why do I get sooooooo much junk mail?
Can something be configured to block all this **** I receive ?

Basically, the junk-filter does not work, at all. Junk stays in the inbox, other email ends up in the junk folder. Even if I say email is not junk, it still ends up in junk, every time. For me this is a reason to end my relationship with Hotmail after many, many years. Fix it, ASAP
please , fix this problem
Today my SPAM reached 100 + for the day! Is this happening to anyone else out there? How do I complain to MICROSOFT about this problem?
two phishing emails in a row, 30 minutes apart.
You need a competent tech team because they aren't doing their job.
What if an elderly person fell for this phishing scam?
Gmail is far superior

Constant spammer "newsletter@(change domain every time)" is now using .space as the extension. They change from .xyz to .com to .info etc.. Worst offender. Please block these people.
Has anyone else received a junk email stating that you must verify your email address or be cancelled?
Ridiculous amount of spam email. I have been using the 'block' function for years and yet the volume of spam emails has grown dramatically recently. I am considering moving to another platform for emails.
I too am having this issue. I never used to get it but now so much junk mail
All of the bogus "subscriptions" in my account have now disappeared. I suspect they have only been hidden from me because I have been an avid complainer. I believe I am still being "subscribed" by Microsoft because my junk has now doubled in the past three weeks, as every junk email now has an exact double show up ten minutes after its match right below it in the folder. This is exhausting. I now have to sift through approximately 100+ junk emails per day to check for valid emails, because none of Outlook's rules/ filters work. The spam emails come in as fast as I delete them. OUTLOOK - the laughing stock of the spamming world.
