Problems with Blocked Senders list and junk mail Filter Options.
The Blocked Senders list puts email from Blocked Senders into my Junk Mail folder, rather than into my Deleted Files folder, due to the differing and changing subdomains that the spammers use.
Outlook does not allow wildcard (*) to block all subdomains from each email domain.
The filter options to block all subdomains from each domain don't work.
How do I block all email with address in the PATTERN of firstname.lastname@example.org? Notice that email@example.com is a PATTERN, not an email address. An example of a particular spammer's address is firstname.lastname@example.org which is in the PATTERN of email@example.com (format).
Please fix the aforementioned problems.
junk emails do not get blocked any more .
When I click on block the sender in junk email folder the emails do not get blocked and do not get deleted like before and remains in the junk folder without no action.

I can no longer select all in my spam folder and block. I need to go into each email and delete them. There are too many and it is too time consuming.
If I select Phishing - these emails then go into my delete folder as unread. I do not want any unread items in my email folders.

Thank you for fixing this.
Since Hotmail was swallowed up by Outlook, all I get is pornographic and gambling email regardless of having blocked same address over and over and over again Fix your **** You lot are disgusting how you **** all over people

Stop the SPAM. Blocking a email or domain should PREVENT it ever getting into one of my mailboxes, even the Junk folder. Block means BLOCK.
Also, I am having the same issue as others. I try to block scam (not spam) emails and they do not block anymore and just sit in the spam/junk folder. Prior to yesterday, they were automatically being removed. Please fix this issue. You all at Microsoft keep messing our email accounts up and refuse to fix the issues! STOP IT!
If you do *@xyz.com it will block all emails from that subdomain and you can add that to your block senders list. But if you're looking to do xyz@*.com, then no, sadly, it won't allow that. I've tried. I wish we could do that, but currently that's not an option.
how can the system not know that this is a subject to of junk mail and not be filtered out.

not interested in voting. also not interested in organising junk email. whatever you have done - undo it. I just want to tick the site - and block it. like before.
I cannot block email junk now! I click on it like normal but nothing happens. Why?
The block feature in the junk mail is not emptying the junk mailbox after it blocks senders.
I suggest to have another option in the pop-up window when confirming the "report phishing mail". Here, please add block all from sender! Please also mark all mails as READ after marking them as phishing mail in bulk! (steps --> mark multiple mails, click on phishing and confirm pop-up....today all mails that were not opened before are in status UNREAD in trash - they should disappear or at least be marked as READ in my mind)
The blocked senders list should block the sender completely and you should not see it in any folder. That is the purpose of blocked senders. If you want to manage mail by sender build a rule.
