Why can’t you have a more efficient spam filter? When I get 10 emails saying the same dumb **** which is obviously spam, can’t I just block certain words? Or better yet, can’t you block emails even coming through to my spam folder/inbox which are obviously spam? I don’t need them, and I’m probably not alone...
We are sorry about the spam mail you’ve been receiving. We are looking into improving the filtering.
Why can’t I block/report/delete someone, something from emailing me without opening the email?! Spam and everything other bad unwanted email out there only gets worse if you click the email! I’m at the point of deleting this account and never coming back.

This is ridiculous. How can we use a mail product that delivers mostly junk and spam and loses our email in that mess in the process? You guys should be ashamed of yourselves for even putting this out. It’s not ready.
So frequently, I will receive exactly the same SPAM message, after I have marked the first one as SPAM, 6 or 8 times more in the same day, often 3 or 4 times straight. Surely that could be tweaked somehow. Right?

Most users here are complaining about receiving too much spam. I have the exact opposite problem. I subscribe to several mailing lists which I do read and they almost always wind up in the spam folder. It is very difficult to black/whitelist senders on the mobile webpage and not possible through either the apple mail app or outlook app. Moving messages from the junk folder to my inbox doesn't affect future messages however, in my experience, once i move an email from a new sender to the junk folder in Apple mail, all future messages go to junk. You need to allow access to the safe sender and block lists through the mobile website as well as the app.
I have the same problem. I remove at least 6-7 spam mails a day, and its the same kind of spam mails. Im so close to just change mail.

I’ve removed my outlook mail account from all my devices because of the overwhelming amount of junk mail flooding my inbox. People have been complaining about it for months. Lots of people. Is there anybody from Microsoft who even cares about this issue? Apparently not. I’m not quite sure how you expect us to use this mail if our inbox is completely flooded with garbage and we can’t find our legitimate messages. I’m very disappointed in Microsoft and never thought I would have to delete my account after 25 years with a hotmail address.
90% of my inbox is junk. Microsoft is the only accounts I have this big of a problem with
It seems most the "idea's" here are in fact complaints and frustrations about Microsoft's lack of effort and ineptitude in tackling Spam and getting at the sources and trying to stop and curtail it themselves.
My idea is that Microsoft should task itself more into pursuing and prosecuting these annoying and dangerous parasites and to put it at the top end of their agenda.
If they have a 'dedicated' department for this then it should have a major clearout ( top to bottom) as it is not fit for purpose .
My other suggestion is that if they don't sort it out then we should all change our email provider!
Spam messages reach me despite the ban. Messages still reach me
Spam address is email@example.com
533 junk emails in 2 days. Now these crude spams and phishing are showing up in my focused inbox, 20 in one hour. Outlook, I'm done, you suck.
Also block any emails containing the words "slim", "congratulations" and "****".

Block emails that use certain words. The spam folder isn't vigilant enough.

Your spam is filtering mails form my contact list in to the spam folder
I want spam function stopped
Stop spam on top of spam way to much
My inbox, whether it be primary, junk, or spam, has been bombarded with unwanted emails! There should be an option to stop this. I don't just want to send spam emails to spam or junk, I don't want to ever see them, period. It's annoying because almost every other day or week I will get emails I never subscribed to, visited, or whatever the case!
“Contact virtual agent” has an option to email support. But just takes you to your inbox in webmail. Hit “contact us” and takes me here ... Basically a loop of unhelpful-ness.
The reason I started this is an issue with spam. I’ve had an increasing amount of spam mail recently and haven’t changed a thing. For example, 25 emails overnight last night! That’s a bit extreme. Yes they go in my junk folder, but so do legit emails too. So now I have to weed through 25 emails in an 8 hour period - 75 a day?
Something broke on your end. Fix it please!
