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.
Having rules for the junk mail folder would really be great!
Give us the ability to block domains to the deleted folder would help too.
Why couldn't Microsoft make it so that we choose what folder we want the blocked mail senders to go to the future?
If we block a domain to the deleted folder all future mail from that blocked domain should go right into the deleted folder without us doing anything!
I want to turn off the junk email filter there is no place to do i, because it is filtering email from my wife.

Why can't rules apply to junk folder so I can auto delete appspot spam e-Mails and don't have to sift through Spam to find the e-Mails I want to move to my inbox?

I can't use Outlook's Rules on my Junk Folder for my Outlook.com account. It does not work if I create the rules via Outlook.com, and it does not work if I create rules in my locally installed Outlook client connected to my Hotmail account.
I would be able to eliminate 80% or more of the junk mail I receive if I could move to Deleted or permanently delete messages based on words in the Subject or Sender's address field.
It is pointless to try to eliminate these junk messages with the Blocked Senders option because the spammers keep using email addresses consisting of random characters. But, they tend to use real words and phrases in the Subject and in the friendly description text of the From addresses.

I agree...when an email is blocked, it shouldn't be allowed to enter any folder in our emails. I like that there is a blocking of the ending, but if it just blocks and sends to junk mail what vailue is that. Are you a part of the garbage on here, or why aren't you working harder to make it impossible for people to scam and fill head with horrible thoughts This is so wrong on so many levels...much of the stuff in junk mail wouldn't be allowed in snail mail. It is illegal!!!!!
AGREE!!! Not being able to run "rules" in the Spam folder is a big one. My junk folder has tripled as of late. I cannot even block all of them because they use different domain names all the time; more specifically the German ones "firstname.lastname@example.org".
You need to work on this one Outlook Team! Please!!!

All junk mail suddenly being dumped in my "Focused" folder!

Yes!! I don't see why profanity is allowed on a computer at all. I should be able to Restrict words in the Subject Line of emails. blocking a Sender doesn't work because they just open a new one each day. Please fix.
I just want to add on to this saying that the number of junk emails getting through to my inbox is just unreal. And they mostly get through to the "focused" tab, which is even more surprising. Please fix it.
My other issue is that legitimate emails that I constantly mark as "not junk" are going through to junk....is the "not junk" button just the same as "move to inbox" or is there any algorithm to remember that messages from that address are really not junk?

I'm getting a ridiculous amount of spam and phishing messages coming from a very sophisticated spammer. He is using AWS and have I literally sent hundreds of Spam Abuse reports to Amazon and they have not done anything. This has been going on since July 2019.
I would GREATLY APPRECIATE if we could apply the RULES to the JUNK EMAIL box because I'm getting an insane amount of spam from several email domains like: cnet.online.com / infodeal.com / asw-air.com / appspot.com and several others.
This option would help greatly so I hope you guys can implement it soon. Thanks in advance!

Yes, please give us the option to add RULES to the JUNK box. I'm also getting a ridiculous amount of spam and phishing emails message. I would like to just set a rule to automatically delete spam emails (with certain criteria (like a domain name or specific words) to be automatically deleted. THIS IS A MUST HAVE to curb the insane amount of spam and phishing emails.
Oh my God. I am so fed up at getting all these spam emails in my inbox!! Yesterday's were from khessna-lead, vertical-aff, ee-business, and deadbest. I have blocked them all but they still keep coming. The day before it was som other site, I can't remember, as I blocked all the emails and now, at least, they haven't come back. And none have been sent to my junk box - what is going on, Microsoft???? I am ready to switch to gmail this doesn't stop!!
The Junk mail coming into the Inbox problem seems to have been resolved as of this morning on my system. I have a hotmail account. Hope the same is true for all.
I am having the same issue with vertical-aff.com. I woke up to 89 spam emails in my regular inbox and much more in my junk box. I cannot find a way to block this. I'm going to switch to gmail, i cannot handle all this spam.
Same here, my hotmail mailbox is bombarded with these spam emails. The sender's names and addresses are random, such as Fungus Eliminator <g722fi5w.(hot balloon)@ihevsejrhn.com>, the email content usually include a link to nesmonst.com. I tried to categorize them as junk or phishing, it didn't stop them. Microsoft should know how to stop them, it's not hard to do, or let customer create content based filters.
I too am getting slammed on my Hotmail inbox with vertical-aff.com spam email and Khessna-lead.com. am unable to block these despite using the settings to do so. Please fix this ASAP. I feel like Lucy in the chocolate factory so many are coming at me at once! Please tell us how to get out of this ****.
Suddenly I am also getting the vertical-aff emails. They are driving me nuts. Anything I can do aout this?
I'm getting slammed on my Hotmail inbox with vertical-aff.com spam emails, too and am unable to block these despite using the settings to do so. Please fix this ASAP.
I'm having this issue too. thx.
