Thank you for reaching out to us. We are sorry that you haven’t been able to block certain contacts. We are considering bringing this ability to outlook on the mobile browser. However in the meantime you can do this from outlook.com on a desktop or a laptop. Follow the steps mentioned here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/how-do-i-block-the-email-of-someone-harassing-me/d2d4a775-b8c8-4c38-bcc6-404a940030e8.

    Please for the love of goodness, add a “block option” to your system! I get unsolicited junk mail and it does no good to report it!!!

    The Sweep and Block and Block remedies provided by Outlook/Hotmail/MSN do not work, and have never worked. I continue to receive spam mail for lending, and a variety of other nuisance e-mail that I've blocked, or swept and blocked multiple times. I am very tired of wasting time each day clearing out these unwanted e-mail, that continue to be sent. What is MSN doing about this ongoing problem?

    Be able to block sender form the mobile app.
    (If you CAN do this, I haven't been able to find it.)

    Although I am forced to review, block, delete, mark as junk or phishing scams every day, and mark them as such for disposal and further action by MSN, these same annoying and time wasting e-mail are sent to my e-address constantly. What more can I do? What is MSN Outlook doing to remedy this very troublesome problem. I am reaching a point where I may change my e-mail to g-mail, and start over again with informing only my friends of this new address. My preference is to stay with hotmail. But unless Outlook can resolve this problem, I'm leaving.

    Man sollte eine Option einfügen so das man bestimmte e-mail Addressen blockieren kann

    Fantasmas.club uses a different email for each piece of junk mail, sometimes 5 or 6 per day! Please make these people stop sending me their garbage before I have to delete my account!

    Build in a button to block unwanted e-mail senders like spam mails.

    Does anyone know how to block a email address please? I feel like I’m going to have a nervous breakdown because this person will not leave me alone. Do I have to completely delete my account for me to delete this one email address? I feel depressed and really unhappy I can’t get this email address blocked and not sending me emails.

    We desperately need to be able to block email addresses because often “unsubscribe” doesn’t work.
