Rules for junk
PLEASE add rules for junk mail. I often get mail in my junk mail that is actually useful, so I look in there often. Lately, I've been getting SO MANY phishing emails from Save Yourself trying to "blackmail" me into sending them bitcoin, and it automatically goes to my junk folder, but I want anything with the words "Save Yourself" to be deleted so I don't have to look at it. Their emails contain an old password of mine, and their emails are all different, so even if I block one, I'll get another email from a different address in about an hour. I'm so sick of it. It is ridiculous that rules cannot be applied to your junk folder.
It's just awful. No matter how many times you might clear certain types of emails, too, it keeps burying them in the junk mail folder. and 10 days before autodeletion? Outlook is SO close to being the best free email on the planet. But these kinds of ***** ups will lose them a TON of customers. Fix your heuristics or better yet just let us manage this stuff. Or just let us walk, if you don't want us then great cya, MS ALMOST turned its rep around solely by treading water while everyone else screwed the pooch... but I guess the possibility of success was too much to handle.
I do work at a hotel, and every email sent from the email address of the hotel is sent to junk, i hat to create a gmail account just to avaid this.
this is so frustrating and it needs to be fixed asap!
I get way to many "normal" mails from people I know and just regular work mails in my Junk Folder. And NO I do not want to add these mails all manually as safe adresses in my list. On the other hand, just annoying obviously marketing and advertising mails from "big" companies arrive directly in my inbox. At this point I would even glady dissable the whole Junk Filter option and just receive every mail in my regular inbox. The hotmail algorythm is just dpuble wrong. It is false negative AND false positive in many cases and herby I would prefer getting every mail.

I've noticed lately that emails ALREADY IN MY IN-BOX are being moved to my junk folder before being read. Not acceptable.
How, how, how in the world it is possible that my notifications from Teams, forwarded to my personal outlook account, ends up in the Junk folder, EVEN after I white list all the addresses I could think of???!?!?!?? Come on guys!! This is MS, you can't drop the ball like that!! No, seriously, please, get it together. Thanks.

This has been happening for quite some time. Worse lately too.
I flag emails as 'not junk' and it moves it to the inbox, but then tomorrow i'll get another email from same sender and it's back in the junk folder! Why can this not be fixed!?

A lot of my useful mail is going to junk file, EVEN if I add it to the SAFE list. What's happening Microsoft?
Try adding a sender to a list of safe senders. You can't right-click, choose from dropdown menu. No, you have to manually copy the address, re-open the safe senders list, manually paste the address, choose the next adress which closes the safe senders list.
An incredible number of clearly important E-Mails, individually written, from importand and respected domains, land in my spam folder. Frankly, ridiculously bad.

Give us, the USERs, the ability decide to which folder a composed rule applies. Currently composed Rules only apply to Messages landing in the Inbox. If the buit-in MS Junk Email filter directs such messages to the Junk Email folder, a User composed Rule won’t be invoked.
If you can’t do that, then allow a User to switch OFF the MS Junk Email filter. Either way solves the problem of literally thousands of complaint users.
Meanwhile it took a week of back ‘n forth with the Support team explaining the problem and the cause before they referred me to UserVoice. Instead they repeatedly And ridiculously made the suggestion that I simply add each offending user address to my Safe Sender list so the Inbox Rule I composed would function. I receive approximately 50 of these emails per day and each user address Is newsletter@*.* (each has a different ISP). And . . . The ISP is never repeats. NEED I SAY MORE?

This requires immidiate attention!!!
Useful mail gets in the junk too often! An option to cancel junk email should be added!
I absolutely agree!! Mail handling filters should be able to include words that appear in the subject line, and apply to all e-mail! I get 20 junk messages a day with the same stupid word in the subject, but all from different addresses. If I could make a rule "when you see word xyz in the subject line, make it go away so I never ever see it anywhere in any mailbox" it would be wonderful. Why can't you do this in 2020?
I tried to create a bunch of rules and I still have loads of emails that are not junk going to my junk folder. Please create settings to make the junk folder useful and not a hassle.
The new Junk Mail Filter this year renders Outlook.com useless. I plan to close my account of 26 years and drop Microsoft 365. This is shameful.
My business emails are sent to Junk repeatedly!! No thank you.
Absolutely. Microsoft's junk mail filtering is useless. Spam mail gets through while important emails are going into the junk folder.

i want to shut junk mail OFF!
Important emails are going into my junk folder. Emails from Color of Change and Action PAC, which are NOT spam and are very important messages about ending racial discrimination. This is dangerous, as it could be twisted that these emails are being intentionally suppressed.
Advertising in bortom of page block for move email to other folder because of pop-up fuction.
Bad quality of basic spam filter. Email from persons who is alreadey in mail box end up as spam, and spam is going directly to inbox.
I can understand the use of advertisment, but it must be done in a way that the functionality is not broken down.
So far, I am not that happy with it. When I updated my Office365 to the new Microsoft Offce365, it screwed most of my emails up! It took a couple of days to even receive new emails and now many of my everyday emails that need are going to junk mail. What's worse, if I keep saying they are not junk and yet the keep going to junk. Please fix this!

This needs serious looking into. I don't fancy moving to another email provider because it's a pain in the backside, but I just fished out about 12 emails about my orders being cancelled, clubs I belong to changing it's rules and tax benefits too!
