  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  6. 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

  8. Update Outlook so that email addresses with abnormal characters (not "special" or normal) can be blocked by command and rules.

    There is A LOT, and I really mean A LOT, of spam mails that use email addresses which include characters that we don't normally find anywhere in ASCII. We need Outlook to become able to block and IMMEDIATELY REMOVE email addresses that include non-ASCII characters, very badly.

    These email spammers are willing to make any nonsense character be inserted into the sending address at any cost, just to waste space and time.
