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.
In my opinion the methodology you all use for filtering spam messages is flawed. Based on my experience an individual's rules should be applied before the spam filter is used to scan inbound messages but instead you run the spam filter so that and individual's rules only to mail that goes to the INBOX. The result is that spam really isn't blocked it's just placed in the JUNK folder. The argument you all suggest is that if it's truly spam the end user doesn't need to do anything as the messages will be automatically deleted from the JUNK folder over time. The problem with that logic is that the end user must sort through lots of spam messages to discover messages that are NOT spam but were thought to be spam by filter. Bottom line is that the way you handle spam is NOT productive for the end user and needs to be changed.
My NYT started going into junk mail about a month ago.....everyday I have to fish it out.

Why make "junk" a new subscription. Found some very dangerous "junk" that had previously stolen money from my account using an alternate name. Is it possible to check first before creating a new "subscription"?

Enable "Rules" to be applied to the "Junk Email" folder. Need to be able to get spam under control, cause sometimes normal email ends up in the junk folder. There has been an influx of junk mails that i receive and its getting tiresome to check hundred of them each day to week out accidental good emails that were sent to the junk folder.
Is it possible to have emails identified as phishing to be permanently deleted from junk mail rather than have it all go to the deleted items folder? This would allow identification and a one-step clean up.
Yes. Good emails get put into SPAM folder. Impossible to go through the hundreds of real spam to find those unintended. Most of the stuff in Spam I could remove with a simple spam filter rule on about a dozen key words.
Now getting phishing email with links to website ****.nesmonst.com. I agree that we should be able to apply rules to junk email folder to automatically block and delete these and all other "illegal" emails coming into Junk. Including sexually explicit emails coming from appspot.
I am getting at least a 100 a day from ….@ …...vertical-aff.com Why can't rules be allowed in the junk file or block file, to block domains with a wild card i.e @/%/.vertical-aff.com or even to automatically delete emails going to the junk file.

Yes, if Microsoft is not going to filter out junk email, then please add rules to junk mail. Getting 40+ junk email a day from domains ending in .de. Please just filter it all out, or provide the option of setting rules.
Amen to this! Emails with important information from... wait for it... SKYPE (Microsoft product) go to my junk email! And helpful emails from my website support company, who use the well-known and respected Help Scout, also go to junk! Even putting them on the safe senders list and their domain on there as well, does NOT fix this issue!
Anyone else find it ironic that I can "sign in with" Facebook or Google to give this feedback, but not my Outlook/Live account? What the **** is going on Microsoft? Get your **** together and let legit emails into our inbox!

allow the rules to be applied for junk emails too!
Why every email comes to junk folder first! That's really confusing. Outlook should be able to differentiate between few thousand personal / reputed business email senders and Millions of junk message senders.

Yes! I want to block all emails with certain words in the subject line, such as flaccid, hard, pain, free, Alaskan, canvass prints, and diabetes!
No kidding! Yes! Please!

create rule doesn't work at all. neither does blocking. 1 more month and i leave hotmail for good. 20 year user
Why does MSN Outlook take it upon itself to 'sort' my email by putting all the wrong emails in my 'Junk Folder'? Surely what is Junk and what is Not is for ME to decide? PLEASE stop manipulating MY personal emails!!!

Process Rules before Junk Mail, or Rules should include Junk Mail. If I setup Rule to move all emails containing .microsoft.com and @microsoft.com in senders address to be moved to Microsoft folder, I should never see a Microsoft email in Junk Emails. That actually happens. Get it fixed already!!!
