Obvious spam being sent to Inbox
Why is obvious spam not going to Junk or being blocked. 42 emails with the same "From" and "Subject" that arrived within 120 secs to my Inbox. These should have been filtered out and deleted or at the very least sent to Junk. Why weren't they?
hoping to get somw spam email on email@example.com

Your junk spam and scam filtering is one of the worst on the market. obvious scams pretending being amazon with shady domain being sent to my inbox very often. unacceptable for a company that us considered leader in ts domain...

I don't understand why Outlook doesn't spot obvious (phishing) spam from ...
... but keeps flagging email from ...
Stanford Medicine National Daily Health Survey for Coronavirus <firstname.lastname@example.org>
... as junk *even though I've said it's not*.
Some help, please!
Please develop a better email screening program. It's a shame that something with an obvious scam email address can get into the Focused or Other email box, but something from my bank gets kicked into the Junk email box.
All your advertising highlights security with push to bypass passwords with 2fa. That is where it stops as not applied to emails applications.
1. Spam emails that are blocked continue to be received
2. The spammers email addresses list proficiently within the suggested contact listing
3. Blocked and spam emails appears within the deleted inbox.
4. Integration and Search enhancements appear to be regressive and counter productive for users but not spammers
Conclude that email security taken backward seat. Spam, blocked emails are treated as normal emails and being siphoned to be passed and sold on.

Lot of the spam I receive from synced accounts has the same subject but the spam is not classified even though I keep moving it to junk
As Rules do not apply on synced accounts I cannot even make a rule to auto-tag it as spam :-(
i have unkown e-mail contacts in my send e-mail list-- does any of the engineers (so called out look expert software guys know how to delet the unkown address's
It should be easy to identify an email sent from "rarieutblog.com" but purporting to be from "protect.netflix.com" as spam.
I estimate that 50% of the phishing emails I receive end up in my inbox and 10-15% legit order emails end up in Junk.
I dutifully mark phishing emails as such and whitelist legit senders so I'm doing my part. Microsoft, please step up your Junk identification game!

I just checked my email. Of the 5 new emails in my inbox, all 5 were spam. Of the 5 new emails that were in my junk folder, 2 of them were useful (and emails that I've used the "not junk" button on countless times). There is something seriously wrong with outlook's junk filtering.

I get so much spam into my inbox folder, phishing, singles in your area, save money now!!!, all with email addresses, subjects, and contents which SCREAM spam. This needs fixing ASAP, it's the reason I switched to Google before, but their services just filter out too much!

I am getting the occasional but obvious spam coming into my Inbox in the past few weeks. This has not happened before. What has changed?
I am being inundated with xrated spam, most going to spam folder. Some of this still going into my in- box folder. Please sort this out, it seems to me OUTLOOK .COM has change things and it's NOT for the better !!

a few days ago I had over 122 spam mails in my inbox, I blocked the address and then found 4,000 plus in my junk mail, they are now turning up in my deleted folder. I just deleted 4,436 and the folder registered 5,483 deleted. Can some one deal with this or do I have to change my e-mail.
i AM BEING FLOODED WITH EMAILS FROM BITCOIN EVEN AFTER BLOCKING THEM WHY ?

This is actually amusing if it wasn't predictive. You guys can keep dozens of obvious spam emails out of the main inbox but your reply to my feedback went to the SPAM folder!
I've been hit with a steady stream of spam emails for the last week or so and it's ridiculous. I've gotten the same "your virus protection is expiring today" phishing email at least 10 times a day! How is it you can't block emails when the address has a globe or an umbrella or other symbol in it? Can't your filters figure that no legit email address would have such a thing? I know it's hard to catch all spam but how are you missing such obviously spammy addresses???
A lot of spam recently that is obviously spam but is not being identified as such. From Netflix, Lidl, Winning. Please could you take a look?

how can the block senders domain work sometimes, but not others? I get obvious spam in my inbox 20-30 times per day. all of them are in my blocked senders list. ALL OF THEM!

I have a screenshot I just took. Between 9:11 PM and 11:46 PM today, I received a flood of 19 obvious spam emails. The spam filter has to get better on Outlook!! I've gone from 10 a day or so obvious spam messages to 25-30 per day.
