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.
me too I keep getting a bunch of **** from ****@****appspot.com
I want to block this domain completely...
I DO NOT want this **** in my spam folder...
I still have to go through and delete it...
I want it completely blocked or into the deleted or trash folder
NOT my spam folder...
I have shared my opinion on a regular basis on multiple areas of outlook and voted in your game show style communications as well. Now there is an escalation team??? Seriously?!? Way to pass the buck. If you would spend as much time moderating the Junk mail as you do your customer comments maybe we could get rid of some of this junk. For months now all I hear is we can't, No option to stop completely. Or we might have done something that may help in some situations. Or our filtering system can't do that.
I do not expect completely, I know they change their email address often. But again You are not allowing us to block anything as in ZERO from going into our junk mail. Allow Us to filter. Why is it Outlook cannot do this when other companies can? Hotmail would let us permanently Block addresses and domains from going into our JUNK MAIL. And then outlook took over and took that option away! WHY??? It helped some. The technology is there Outlook needs to step up your game. And actually try to do something. ANYTHING is better then nothing!
I suggest a way to BLOCK from Inbox and JUNK permanently, sub-domains and subject buzz words.
As soon as I find the time to reach all my contacts I will switch over to gmail because this is ridiculous!
Bye, I will not be recommending Outlook to anyone.

No other email provider is experiencing a problem of this proportion ... there are only two reasons that this is happening on outlook.com; either the ms/outlook.com so-called team is totally 'incompetent' or they are 'intentionally promoting' these phishing/junk mails so as to increase some form of revenue. There are no other legitimate reasons for this plague/epidemic of 'obvious' phishing/junk emails to be going on for this long, all of which should be auto deleted and not be going into the junk folder. It is also occurring with the paid subscriptions so MS will not only be loosing a lot of email users but many Office subscribers also.
Outlook is the ABSOLUTE WORST email provider for spam / junk. The amount of **** going to my junk mail is UNREAL. 26 in 15 minutes. Over 1000 in one week. WHY??? Y'all need to FIX THIS!!!
. . . Or I'll just drop outlook and move to gmail.
I have become so irritated with 12+ junk mails a day I am going to apple iCloud. Used to be with Gmail but it is as bad as OUtlook..
Yep. Definitely a problem with Hotmail, the spam amounts. Anyone who wants a reliable email, use Gmail. Never get the spam I get there, that I get here. I only keep it as some old friends only use Hotmail and I like to use it as a "burner" email address for all those companies that want you to give their email address but you don't want them to spam your main account.
And BTW why don't you moderate the JUNK mail instead of your frustrated customers???
OUTLOOK ARE YOU READING THESE COMMENTS?
What happened to making our experience more positive?
I have reported to abuse, phishing, outlook support, block, voted on your stupid contest way of communications, gave you plenty of feedback on this subject. For months now. All about the inability to control what comes into our JUNK FOLDERS.
Hotmail at least allowed us to block domains and addresses from our JUNK.
Outlook however is incapable/unwilling to do even that.
Your filtering system that you rely on to determine what is spam or phishing is JUNK. I can tell you at a glance. When we click on block or phishing that is all the info you need to know.
If we could block emails by subject and sub-domains, we could eliminate most all of our junk. And if you should be able to pick up on the spam with all the emojis and addresses that do not match the subject. We could cut back 95%.
But YOU ARE NOT EVEN TRYING ARE YOU?????
Do you want customers or are you trying to boost gmail customers?
If I put my email address below are you going to sell it to spammers and I get even more JUNK?
spam is awful, i agree! why are they allowing ***** enlargement e-mails to even show up in the first place? obvious spam should be deleted without us even seeing it!
I am fed up with junk mails and spams with Hotmail. Can anyone recommend another email site that is much batter blocking junk mails?
No matter how many times you block them, same emails come back sometimes multiple times a day. What is point of blocking spams and junk mails If Microsoft cannot stop them..
It is frustrating.
If this continues, i may close my email with Outlook and go some where else
Its disgusting that there is so much spam! I've already moved to gmail and will delete this account as well. You offer no solution! I'm getting 100 spam emails a day and I cant find the emails I'm waiting on! I'm currently moving everything over...… terrible service for a 20+ year customer. With the competitive market at the moment you would think you could do better.
OUTLOOK/HOTMAIL what have you done to us?? 73 spam emails in 1 day?? I will be leaving you shortly........what happened??

sending to phishing and blocking doesnt work. once u reach ur blocking limit it is useless and since outlook cant or wont make blocking feature unlimited once u block a addy or domain they change 1 thing in addy and it comes back.

Started just a couple of weeks ago. Has something changed with outlook's filter parameters?

Suddenly, tons of JUNK mail. Please control this obvious junk and spam!!
Mary Kirk commented
Whatever you all did in the last two weeks has been a terrible change, dozens and dozens of spam emails...I keep sending them to the 'phishing' file to report them, but nothing changes. I've had this email account forever and will gladly change if this doesn't stop.... It's ridiculous and I see others are dealing with the same problem. FIX IT ....way too many options available to all of us to have to put up with this.

I agree, far too many junk/spam mails get through to my Junk/spam. Even after requesting certain words being blocked they still appear. A diagnostic report is of no use whatsoever. Means nothing to me.

When will it stop. Shall I change my email altogether. Very upset. Blocking doesnt do any good.

Today I got 40 junk mail - disgusting as usual
