  1. 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…

  2. Obvious spam being sent to Inbox

    Why is obvious spam not going to Junk or being blocked. 42 emails with the same "From" and "Subject" that arrived within 120 secs to my Inbox. These should have been filtered out and deleted or at the very least sent to Junk. Why weren't they?

  3. Too much junk / spam: Junk folder becoming to inundated

    20 year user moving to new platform. Flooded my junk box with advertisements now I have to search for any emails that may be of value to me that don't automatically filter to my inbox. It's a shame.

  5. Email from senders I have emailed are clearly not junk, yet end up in Junk folder

    2 options --let me decide ONCE until I say otherwise that a sender is ok. Or for heaven's how hard can it be to write an algorithm that allows email from a sender to whom I have sent email??? My "Junk" folder often contains more than 50% mail that I want to receive -- and from repeated correspondents who I have designated as "not junk" repeatedly

  7. Problems with Blocked Senders list and junk mail Filter Options.


    1. The Blocked Senders list puts email from Blocked Senders into my Junk Mail folder, rather than into my Deleted Files folder, due to the differing and changing subdomains that the spammers use.


    2. Outlook does not allow wildcard (*) to block all subdomains from each email domain.


    3. The filter options to block all subdomains from each domain don't work.


    4. How do I block all email with address in the PATTERN of a@a.b.c? Notice that a@a.b.c is a PATTERN, not an email address. An example of a particular spammer's address is holdon@holdon.luxuryzero.com which is in the PATTERN of a@a.b.c (format).


    Please…

  8. [Suggestion]:Phishing emails titled "Netflix" or "Paypal"

    So many phishing email titled "Netflix" or "Paypal" got through the filter. I have to manually report them every day. It's so easy to figure out they are fake because their email addresses are clearly from some random domains. Why they can't be automatically filtered out?

  9. Junk e-mail: block e-mail addresses using wildcards (eg *@*.can

    Junk e-mail: why can't you allow the user to block e-mails using a wildcard and only part of the e-mail address? I receive, EVERY DAY, emails from pharmacy<something>.can and I want to block @.can instead of wasting my time to block every single instance, every single day

  11. Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing

    Microsoft's software engineers are smart enough to make this simple line of code happen - Automatically block sender and ip when message is marked Phishing, so that users' junk boxes don't get unmanageable by the quantity of junk that gets through. The time it takes to look up the sender data, copy the ip and paste it into the blocked sender panel just gets too long when you are dealing with 20+ junk messages at a time.

  13. Too much obvious spam in junk folder

    Too much obvious spam in junk folder, making it difficult to spot genuine emails. This has only started happening again recently. Revise incoming spam filters, something has gone horribly wrong.

  14. What happened to blocking domains automatically

    There was a great feature that let you choose to block the entire domain when you chose to block an email. This was great because I used to have to go through the blocked senders list one by one adding the bad domains. I thought it should have been expanded so that if you chose to block a domain, it automatically deleted all emails from that domain that was in your mailbox.

    Instead of expanding the functionality, it looks like it has been removed. Bring back the option to flag email as Junk, block it, choose to block the domain,…

  16. blocking and reporting phishing in one step

    It seems you can either block spam or report it as phishing, but not block and report all at the same time. It would be more effective if you could do both at once.

  17. Block Junk Mail by Sender Name

    Please create an option to block senders by Name (not just by email address or domain). I receive 60 junk emails a day from different email addresses, but often with the same sender name. Blocking the email address and/or the domain isn't effective because the same junk senders have thousands of alternate email addresses. The sender name, however, is consistent (ie: Gadget Junkies, LeafFilter, Walk In Safety Tub, Tommy Chong, Splash Wines, Keranique, etc). Also, adding a Rule to block emails with those words in the subject line or body doesn't work because Rules aren't applied to junk mail (another…

  19. Automatically flag an email as phishing in junk folder

    There should be a feature to automatically flag an email as phishing in the Junk folder by showing a red exclamation point and a warning message saying this is a suspicious email will steal your personal information similar to the feature in Gmail's Spam folder.

  20. Prevent e-mail arriving as flagged

    Spam e-mail is entering my inbox as being flagged. These e-mails then show up in To Do app, extremely annoying. There must be some metadata in those e-mails that is causing Outlook to mark them as being flagged, I don't have any rules that are flagging e-mails
