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.

Your key word eliminator doesn't work- if you enter "Bitcoin" as an example. I still get Bitcoin junk mail. That needs to get fixed.
I'm tired of having to check my junk folder for important emails. It does no good to add a sender to the "safe" list. Emails from the exact same email address can be routed to my inbox one day, but sent to my junk box another day. Makes no sense and is seriously frustrating. Please fix this!
WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DELETE THE JUNK FOLDER ALTOGETHER IF WE DONT WANT TO USE IT! it's made me miss important emails!

98% of the emails that get moved to Junk are emails that I NEED. I use Outlook Client to read my email so I don't see the email you put in Spam, which you automatically delete after 10 days. This is DATA LOSS BY DESIGN which is HORRIBLE. PLease, let me controrl what goes in Junk. Do not autodelete!!!! Your Outlook Client should work with your Outlook Online!!! Please.

The junk folder is like a second inbox folder that we have to check regularly to ensure important emails don't get acclimated there. The spam rules need to apply to that folder as well. 1556 votes. Are yoo listening Microsoft? This feature is important and saves us a lot of time.

Enabling Rules to cover Junk Mail folder entries would be a significant improvement. It would save users from having to repeatedly delete useless spam and phishing emails but keep emails that might be of interest.
Blocking and rules don't work, what the **** do even have them for?
Rules should allow me to block anything from a domain instead of current way where you can only specify exact domain. Example: I get lots of spam and phishing from "<something>@x.y". I want to block EVERYTHING from "@x.y", but I can't do that. I tried using wildcard in blocked sender (*@x.y), but it still didn't work.
Why is it that if I delete something it goes to "trash" and hangs there for 30 days, but if Outlook declares something "junk" it only stays there for 10 days. I get a lot of items moved to "junk" that are legitimate, and I think I deserve at least 30 days time to notice them!
I do not want ANYTHING filtered into my junk/spam folder !!!
I will do ALL my filtering on the remote client side.
Either come up with a Boolean string that passes EVERYTHING,
or add a toggle to the filter menu to DISABLE ALL FILTERING !
I think Outlook needs to reassess their drop down box as it does no good. It just does one junk email and the same email comes back again and again under a different domain or the same domain. My opinion is: allowing their junk email servers to dump every ten days does not solve the problem. That is because the dumping of blocked domains i.e. junk emails only allows the unwanted emails to come back over and over again. Outlook needs to put our safety and privacy as a priority and not as a way to make money. Otherwise why is their not a tool that does something in a permanent way? I too look through my junk email folder for emails I want and are marked as junk. Imagine if one were gone on a personal or business trip looking through hundreds of junk emails on the chance Outlook has marked junk a important email. Time consuming and unnecessary. When a tool I.E. button or box can be checked or clicked to target the domain. Permanently blocked and not for ten days and not after a survey to find enough people that wants it done too. Every email user has different preferences and priorities. Mine is to get rid of all the unwanted emails whether in the inbox or junk email folder.

Please make a rule for the 1st part of an email like starting with this: newletter@ I receive 75% of the junk mail from newsletter all the endings are different. I have to go through junk because an occasional good email is in there. But I think I could eliminate all of those!
My Outlook junk mail folder is flooded with spam from @mail.pendaramyamya.com, and other domains that I want to send straight to the deleted items folder. I will never get a useful email from this domain. Spam/phishing/sextortion emails should go straight to delete! Please enable rules for the junk email folder!!!
Kinda of here to complain about the same subject. When covid-19 started all my junk mail disappeared, now I'm once again getting 100's of emails daily with the same subjects. Keto, CBD, Director of Property, etc, etc.
Why can't rules apply to the junk folder and I try to move legit mail to inbox and still winds up as junk. Several spam filters i've tried automatically detect almost all these and delete them but i'm not paying another fee on top of the ridiculous Office 365 costs.
Microsoft consumer facing products are just 2nd rate. One daym I might just close these emails down and be done with Microsoft Office and Outlook once and for all. Their are other choices where I don't have to spend hours a day sorting through junk

I have created multiple rules to delete junk emails that contain certain criteria. They do not work. None of them... It's frustrating and ridiculous that there appears to be a feature offered (rules), but it's actually nothing. Nothing happens to the emails that should be effected and I keep getting spam from the same senders.
I specifically find common characteristics of the bulk spam that gets sent to me so I can create the rules to automatically delete them. Nothing happens. What is the point of appearing to be able to create the rules for this. They don't work.

I have created a rule, several rules actually, changing what the subject includes and from where it is coming from for a notice that I get for my son and tracking his phone. It keeps sending these emails to junk. Why? I have been very diligent when creating the rule to not include specific times or dates and it still is doing this.

I just found the rules for junk finally. You go into your Inbox or Junk Folder. Then, choose Outlook settings. Under settings, choose 'View all Outlook Settings". Then, choose "Rules". You can then add rules including from, subject includes or body includes. You can choose keywords including "Sender Address Includes". You can also choose "Junk email". Under this, you can choose to block senders or domains and you can add safe senders and domains. This is excellent. I wish that I had seen it sooner.
I AM TIRED OF GETTING BLOCKED EMAIL.I DON`T CARE WHAT FOLDER THEY GO TOO.iF THEY ARE BLOCKED I DON`T WANT THEM IN ANY. SEND THEM INTO SPACE. I AM NOT TYPINY 780 EMAILS IN MY BLOCKED CATEGORY.
