Process customers hotmail rules before built-in junk mail filters
This has been suggested, but has not been implemented. It's fine that you want to minimize junk by filtering it out to the junk folder, but this also prevents user rules from being effective. I want to DELETE any/all emails with keywords KETO or CBD. When you move them to the JUNK folder, it precludes my ability to delete. Don't override user's rules just because you process them first. Process user's rules, and if they aren't processed, THEN you can apply your built-in filters. PLEASE ACT ON THIS QUICKLY. It has been suggested long ago and is about time to implement.
Thanks for your feedback! We’ll look into this.

Apply customer defined filter rules first before messages that meet junk mail criteria are sent to the Junk Email folder. If no rule applies, then send the email to Junk Email.
For some reason, junk mail is getting worse and worse over the past couple of months. I already have appropriate settings to let through safe senders to my inbox. However, my Junk Mail box is inundated with **** and quite often some legitimate notifications end up in there that I need to see (since it's nearly impossible for me to set every possible sender as safe especially since I don't know if they're going to send something to me).
I tried adding some rules so that they'll apply to all mail (including Junk), so that the **** will be auto-deleted...everyone here knows a lot of the stupid culprits.
PLEASE ALLOW FOR THE RULES TO APPLY TO JUNK MAIL!!!!!!!
I know that in the past the Outlook guys have done a fairly decent job at even keeping the Junk mail folder clean of much of the ****, but they've been quiet on this lately and the inundation continues. Please continue the battle on this front as well.
