Spam/junk email showing up in Inbox
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.
Yup I miss being able to have the ability to customise my mailbox settings so that I could permanently allow what emails are going into my inbox. What mail goes to my junk box and what mail doesnt even get received at all through an automatic blocking system. I keep getting a tonne of graphic adult mails from appspot and its driving me nuts.

Tired of getting alot of spam and messages from uknown advertisers since you change outlook..why cant you filter this?.. miss the old hotmail!..
I'm fed uo with all spam I have received. Please do somethig efficiently. Block all those spam adresses.
The spam filter is indeed not moving much junk to the junk folder, but 1000 times worse is that it often moves the most important mails to junk. So, it would actually be better if less junk was moved to the junk folder, so I could more easily find the important mails in there!
EVERYTHING is going to spam and NONE of it is spam! If it continues to work like this, I will look elsewhere for a different email account!

Desde el móvil no existe, o al menos no encuentro la opción de habilitar el reenvío automático de correos a otras direcciones

Helt sinnessjukt dåligt skräppost filter...
Spelar ingen roll hur många gånger man markerar skiten som skräp. Dyker upp i inkorgen endå.
Har haft hotmail i många många år men nu har de spårat rejält!!
Tycker ni det är dax att byta bort er och skaffa ett konto hos några av era konkurenter ist??
Me.entran muchos correos a la bandeja de no deseados de de una web de la que no soy usuario y por ello no puedo acceder a ella para cancelar el envío de correos. He cambiado la contraseña de hotmail y no sé qué más hacer para que no me entren casi 100 al día.
This guy is absolutely right. You are making harder on us to block SPAM. It should be very simple for you to develop it and for us to enable it. C’mon!! Seriously. Get with it. Now!
I am receiving messages which in my opinion are on the verge of ***********. Is there any way in which I can stop receiving them? Many thanks.
Spam coming through to inbox already flagged, spam filter not effective at all. When mail gets put into spam block any further emails from this address or similar titled emails

Okay, there are so much to talk about. Not to mention UI, and optimization in different platforms (it also takes long time to load up the very first inbox screen even with your Edge browser).
BUT the BIGGEST problem is spam/junk mail filtering.
I get that there are millions of spam/junk mails are being sent in so many different ways and there is no definite solution to the problem. But at least we can filter it and narrow them down to small numbers with a right system, that I believe. Only if the system works.
I recently missed out my job offer email, because it went straight to the junk mail folder. I usually check junk mail folder in case if I am missing any important emails, but this time I must have missed it as I usually skim through. I was furious by the time I realized what was going on and I missed the chance. At that time, I was thinking to myself "microsoft had to put on strong filter to screen these crazy number of spam/junk mails, I guess it is my bad that I didn't thoroughly checked the junk mail folder.... It sucks but I guess it is my bad" Up until few days ago.
A few days ago, I started getting these obvious looking spam mails in my INBOX folder! I receive these broken English emails at least 5-6 a day. Well the email addresses are random, but the domain is all SAME! Crazyrandomalphabetwithemoji@festgive.com!!! I wouldn't be so furious if I hadn't done anything, but I added this domain in "block this sender or whatever the filter option it was" and the filter option specifically stated adding a domain will also work just the same as adding specific address. I even tried "report this as spam" or "move to junk folder", but I am still getting these emails in my inbox.
This is beyond disappointment. I had some inconvenience using outlook/hotmail in the past.
For instance, I've been getting my church newsletter in my inbox at times and in my junk folder at times. This situation itself is already a joke, because it was sent from personal email address. So whenever I found this newsletter in the junk folder, I use "this is not spam/junk" function, which is nothing more than moving that single item to inbox, instead of adding that email address to safe address list for me and email from that sender won't fall into junk mail AGAIN!!
Even with these experiences I kept on using hotmail, but with these recent event, it is unacceptable.
Microsoft really need to invest manpower, time, and resources into this email providing services to make some major improvements. It's not like you guys are new to the business or industry. You Microsoft has been in IT industry for so long, it's not like you guys are not capable of doing.
Please show some respect to your customers who put trust in your product and staying with you guys.

I get to many emails from spam emails I’m think about closing my email address
Trots att jag blockerat avsändare kommer spam därifrån. Ni måste bli bättre
jeg for de samme mails hver dag,flytter dem til spam..men de kommer stadig. det er vigtigt
Hello, I’m being harassed by people I don’t know and they want me to send them money. Fake. I don’t reply to their messages but I definitely want to delete their e-mails. help me!!!
I have experienced a large increase in things being classed as junk mail and the stuff I have marked as not spam still goes to junk next time. Please sort it out as I can’t carry on moving things all the time.
