    CURRENTLY AT 95 JUNK EMAILS AND IT IS NOT EVEN 11:00 AM. 15 OF THEM WENT TO MY INBOX. YOUR FILTERING SYSTEM IS A PIECE OF JUNK AND YOUR EMPLOYEES NEED TO BE FIRED. THE LAST EMAIL WAS FROM OUTLOOK POSTMASTER SOMETHING ABOUT ROCK HARD BEING ABLE TO IMPREGNATE A 50 YEAR OLD. I SENT IT TO OUTLOOK SUPPORT AND ASKED WHAT THE HECK?
    NOT LIKE I WILL EVER GET A REPLY.

    I CANNOT DO A BLOCK ALL ON MY 96 JUNK EMAILS BECAUSE A COUPLE OF THEM ARE SPOOFED WITH MY OWN EMAIL ADDRESS!!!! NOW I HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL FREAKING 96 EMAILS TO ELIMINATE THEM OR JUST DELETE ALL.
    YOU HAVE SOME SERIOUS ISSUES GOING ON OUTLOOK TIME TO FREAKING DO SOMETHING . AND LEAVING THOUSANDS OF THEM TO SLOWLY BE DELETED IS NOT THE ANSWER!

    For those of you that think the block feature is "broken" No it is working as Outlook intends.
    When it was Hotmail We could block an address or domain from going into our junk folder. I know, I know they change their address constantly.
    And to make it worse I have to give a valid email address. Outlook is probably selling it. Then it must be approved by a moderator. I really need to leave outlook and go to a competent
    However about 18 months ago Block means Block from going to Inbox and send directly to your junk folder...If you can stand all those thousands of junk mail to stay in your junk folder they will slowly be deleted after 10 days (used to be 30). Always maintaining 10 days worth of P*orn, spam, scams.(Why can't they block subject like Russian beauties, Keto, or whatever scam WE chose to put on a list? Or a select portion of domain or what about the emails themselves that come 5-6 times a day from different addresses???
    Blocking Junk means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
    Try to block a domain...look at the description of what blocking does. Go ahead... you will see by "blocking" a domain it will not appear in your inbox anymore but it will go straight to your JUNK MAIL.
    I get anywhere from 200 to 300 A DAY. And yes I go on these useless forums, block, report as phishing, spoofing, email Outlook support, have even got a tickets started from Microsoft talked with supervisors there who assured me I will hear from Outlook within 24-48 hours. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I GET??? CRICKETS!!! When was the last time Outlook answered any of these complaints??? Look at the volume of dissatisfied customers with the same problem.
    Now I must leave my email address that Outlook probably sells to annoy me. Then I must have this approved by a moderator. UGHH

    A couple of months ago my junk mail folder peaked at 300 a day. Over the holidays it slowed down to 150 - 200 a day. Now it is picking back up again.
    Outlook support where are you? Do you want to improve our experience? There are thousands of us you should answer to. You will not answer complaints even when they a have a ticket number. You do not answer any of the thousands of feedback or votes.
    You are relying on an ineffective filtering system.
    REFUSE TO LET US BLOCK ANYTHING FROM GOING INTO OUR JUNK FOLDERS!!!
    Feedback, forums, reporting as phishing, spoofing, emails to Outlook support and Blocking are ignored. They mean nothing, DO NOTHING.
    No help is offered ever.
    If any of us in the real world performed that way in our jobs WE WOULD BE FIRED. Just look at the volume of complaints you are ignoring!!!
    Are you making money off of these scams? I have to wonder.

    Suggestion...why don't you moderate what goes into our junk folders instead of comments here?

    As of this comment there are 749 comments with 1632 votes. Another similar thread concerning the huge amount of spam, junk, phishing, por*, spoofing. has just as much. Many good suggestions have been given ALL are frustrated!
    Outlook/hotmail/microsoft is doing nothing.
    Block really means delete. Send it all to junk folder. Look at the definition of Block....It is block from inbox and send to Junk.
    Where it will automatically be deleted after 30 days. Hmmmm There is NO WAY I would leave thousands of emails in my junk folder to slowly be deleted.
    The **** (Outlook will probably * it out) has gotten more obscene and descriptive. F word used doing things with various body parts. I would hate for my 6 year old to open up one of these nasty emails. I think there should be another place to report these emails to hook up with people for ***. How about a *** trafficking hotline???
    In the last week or so the Junk has doubled. I open my computer and have over 70 every morning. More come before I can delete those 70. And continue throughout the day. Most of the emails I have been receiving are from "support(varies).de" apparently de is from Germany.
    For months I have complained, suggested, blocked, reported as phishing and abuse, given feedback, commented, voted, and emailed Outlook.
    *Crickets...
    Gee it is almost as if they do not care :)
    Worse I believe they may be profiting from this garbage.
    What gets me is they have the time to put our comments under review! Wow why don't they review the JUNK MAIL instead???Just a thought! And I put my email address down here and my junk mail might double again.
    Never-mind It does not seem to be accepting my email address as being valid.
    Wow the incompetence is great with Outlook.

    At this moment 305 votes and 224 comments. This is how many Outlook is ignoring.
    Does anyone else get annoyed at the fact you have to find your issue and vote on it and then open it up and find your vote was not counted? Or it has been merged or marked as complete??? This is just trying to look like an isolated issue I am sure.
    And comments approved by a moderator???
    Maybe if Outlook spent as much time moderating the Junk mail we would not be having these issues.
    I am with y'all that Outlook has to be in on this, making money somehow with the spam, phishing, subscribing, ****, scams.
    Maybe they are running one of the many **** sites??? (We should be able to report these separately as possibly human trafficking!!! So outlook has one more thing to ignore.) Makes me want to throw up!!!
    Seriously how else can you explain it??? I do not believe them to be a conspiracy theory anymore. There is no logical explanation for the inept, ignoring of all of our complaints. The inability to block anything from our junk folders. The pre-scripted empty excuses and vague answers when they do choose to respond. I have had responses saying it works fine Seriously they did not even have a clue. I make it clear I am talking about the JUNK FOLDER not inbox. Or mark as complete. I have posted responses on this site to prove. Do not know if they are taken down because of this convoluted way of communication.
    How else can you explain it???
    Moderate this Outlook!!!

    I have shared my opinion on a regular basis on multiple areas of outlook and voted in your game show style communications as well. Now there is an escalation team??? Seriously?!? Way to pass the buck. If you would spend as much time moderating the Junk mail as you do your customer comments maybe we could get rid of some of this junk. For months now all I hear is we can't, No option to stop completely. Or we might have done something that may help in some situations. Or our filtering system can't do that.

    I do not expect completely, I know they change their email address often. But again You are not allowing us to block anything as in ZERO from going into our junk mail. Allow Us to filter. Why is it Outlook cannot do this when other companies can? Hotmail would let us permanently Block addresses and domains from going into our JUNK MAIL. And then outlook took over and took that option away! WHY??? It helped some. The technology is there Outlook needs to step up your game. And actually try to do something. ANYTHING is better then nothing!

    I suggest a way to BLOCK from Inbox and JUNK permanently, sub-domains and subject buzz words.

    As soon as I find the time to reach all my contacts I will switch over to gmail because this is ridiculous!
    Bye, I will not be recommending Outlook to anyone.

    OUTLOOK ARE YOU READING THESE COMMENTS?
    What happened to making our experience more positive?
    I have reported to abuse, phishing, outlook support, block, voted on your stupid contest way of communications, gave you plenty of feedback on this subject. For months now. All about the inability to control what comes into our JUNK FOLDERS.
    Hotmail at least allowed us to block domains and addresses from our JUNK.
    Outlook however is incapable/unwilling to do even that.
    Your filtering system that you rely on to determine what is spam or phishing is JUNK. I can tell you at a glance. When we click on block or phishing that is all the info you need to know.
    If we could block emails by subject and sub-domains, we could eliminate most all of our junk. And if you should be able to pick up on the spam with all the emojis and addresses that do not match the subject. We could cut back 95%.
    But YOU ARE NOT EVEN TRYING ARE YOU?????
    Do you want customers or are you trying to boost gmail customers?
    If I put my email address below are you going to sell it to spammers and I get even more JUNK?

    OUTLOOK DOES NOT LET US BLOCK ANYTHING FROM GOING INTO OUR JUNK MAIL. WONT EVEN TRY AFTER OUR MANY COMPLAINTS AND SUGGESTIONS. IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING. AND ALL I HEAR HEAR OUTLOOK IS IT IS COMPLETED, MERGED OR WE HAVE MAID SOME CHANGES THAT MAY HELP IN SOME CASES...REALLY WHAT KIND OF AN ANSWER IS THAT.
    THEY HAVE NOT IMPROVED ANYTHING FROM OUR SUGGESTIONS, IT DOES NOT APPEAR THEY PLAN TO EITHER.
    I HAVE ASKED TO BE ABLE TO BLOCK ADDRESS, DOMAINS, SUB DOMAINS AND SUBJECTS. ALL I HEAR IS EXCUSES IF ANYTHING. LOOK BELOW AT ALL THE COMMENTS OF PEOPLE HAVING THE SAME ISSUES.
    NOW I CANNOT SEE WHO THE EMAIL IS COMING FROM UNLESS I OPEN IT. CANNOT GET AN ADDRESS TO KNOW IT IS FROM THE SAME PLACE THAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO BLOCK OR REPORT FOR MONTHS REPEATEDLY OR SOMEONE NEW. OR SOMETHING SAFE.

    We cannot "block" anything from appearing in our junk mail. We cannot block whole email addresses or domains. Like we used to with Hotmail.
    I have been asking for the ability to block (really block those again) , plus sub domains (certain portion of domain) and I also want to block subjects like Rock Hard. Warranties, Loans etc.
    Also if the address or subject has emojis, or does not match like Amazon with an address of xyzagilisaurus.site.
    I feel this should be dead giveaways they are scams, but when in doubt we should be able to click on block and actually BLOCK THEM from going to our inbox AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OUR OVERCROWDED JUNK EMAIL....
    I have gotten nowhere with OUTLOOK SUPPORT. They either can't or won't help.
    I should leave Outlook if it was not going to be such a pain in the butt. They are not trying to fix this problem for whatever reason I do not know. Sheesh look at all of the similar complaints. Yes they combine or say they complete to make it look less of an issue then it already is. But we are not fooled.
    Outlook does not value us as customers or they would fix the problem and not make us sign in and get approval to give some feedback to be voted on!

    OUTLOOK your filter system is a piece of junk. I have been telling you that for years now. Except now it has failed completely. PEOPLE SHOULD BE FIRED AT OUTLOOK!!!
    I have been receiving many obvious junk emails in my inbox the last few days. About 50 a day not counting 150 + in my junk folder. You should go to a working system that allows us to block the emails not the addresses.
    And by block I mean block from going into our Junk folders as well as Inbox.
    THESE ARE THE SAME FREAKING EMAILS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. YOU HAVE ALLOWED THIS NIGHTMARE TO HAPPEN. THIS REQUIRES A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME TO SORT THROUGH AND DO THE JOB YOUR FILTERING SYSTEM SHOULD BE DOING. BECAUSE YOUR FILTERING SYSTEM SUCKS AND IS BROKEN!!!
    Now I have been getting many junk emails that do not have return addresses on them...
    OUTLOOK GET A HANDLE ON THIS!!! LOOK AT THE VOLUME OF COMPLAINTS....
    I LITERALLY GO TO MY EMAILS, JUNK AND INBOX AND WATCH THEM COME IN ONE AFTER ANOTHER BEFORE I CAN BLOCK THEM. THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

    Outlook your service has gone from bad to worse ever. Out of the 81 junk emails so far today 35 went to my inbox. AND out of that 35... 15 of them did not have a visible return address so those will not make it onto the block list. What is going on???? I think there were another 15 without addresses in my Junk folder because out of the 81 only 50 were even able to block NOT THAT BLOCK MEANS ANYTHING.
    There is now a new law against online *** trafficking. Better step up your game outlook and start doing your job!!! Keep all the Russian babes, Asian, local hot girls, hook ups (P*RN) etc OFF OF MY PC.

    I just got 8 junk spam, appear in my inbox without an emails address. How, and why is this even allowed.??? Those 8 appeared with a block of 60 that went to my Junk mail with addresses. I already Blocked Hahahaha not really 30 from earlier in the day from junk.. So I am up to 100 junk emails not too bad for 2:30 pm.
    I get about 10-15 legit emails a day. Not even a tenth of the Junk mail I get.
    Seems like the more I complain on these forums the more junk mail I get...

    BUT SERIOUSLY THERE SHOULD BE SOME RULE ABOUT SENDING EMAILS WITHOUT A RETURN EMAIL ADDRESS.

    Block does not mean block. When you Block an email or domain all it does is block from going into your inbox...although some still get through. ALL those BLOCKED EMAILS, DOMAINS or those reported as phishing GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR JUNK FOLDER. in spite of all the comments, votes, complaints to outlook.... OUTLOOK REFUSES TO DO ANYTHING!!!! For a month or so I was receiving 200-300 junk emails a day. The same p*rn, CBD, You have won, bitcoin, flashlights, loans. etc that I am sure y'all get them too. because As of right now there are 2,345 votes and 1283 comments on this thread. I find it funny NOT that our comments have to be approved by a moderator. Sheesh why don't they moderate the junk mail???

    Block does not mean Block. All it does is send it to your Junk folder. Look at the description/directions/rules of Block. It does not block anything. Only Deletes! Will automatically be deleted from your junk mail in 30 days.
    Like I will let thousands of ****, spam, phishing, spoofing, junk emails sit in my junk folder. NOPE.
    Another feedback thread with same concerns are being ignored as well.
    The amount of Junk mail has doubled lately most of mine come from "support(varies).de I open my computer with 70 + in my junk folder and before I can delete them I am getting more. They are coming non stop. And Outlook does NOTHING!
    And yes we have to go through and mark some as not junk, some our spoofed and will not be removed when blocked or reported as phishing.
    The POR* has gotten obscene with graphic descriptions. I would hate to have my 6 year old accidentally open one of them. These hook up with real people could be human trafficking??? I would love to be able to report them.
    Look at all of the comments and votes!
    All of these await a moderator approval. Maybe they should scrutinize the junk mail instead.

    Block from junk folder I know really means delete but now it will not "perform that function". So I am marking as phishing to get the bulk **** and other scams to delete. OUTLOOK GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!!! LET US REALLY BLOCK ALL THIS JUNK FROM GOING INTO OUR JUNK FOLDER.

    Outlook stopped allowing us to Block anything from going into our junk mail. If you look into it all it says is these will be blocked from your inbox and go straight to Junk. Hotmail used to allow us to block emails and domains from going into junk. Outlook has gotten thousands of complaints and suggestions and they do not care. They have given me many excuses. Nothing gets done, people are leaving. They must be profiting from the junk mail we get. I can not think of any other reason why they have been so inept and unwilling at solving this problem.

    Hey! You can right click on an email and “Mark as Junk” to mark an item as spam.

    If you think an email is a phishing attack, you can open the email and click on the … next to the reply actions in the top right corner. There, you can click “Mark as Phishing”.

    Hope this helps!

    WE HAVE A PROBLEM BLOCKING EMAILS AND THEIR DOMAINS FROM GOING INTO OUR JUNK EMAIL.
    YOU DO NOT GET THIS CONCEPT. BLOCKING JUNK EMAILS FROM FILLING UP OUR JUNK FOLDERS WITH LOAN PHISHING OR KEEPING A FRICKING ERECTION OR HOT BABES OR NAIL FUNGUS.
    BLOCK THIS FROM GOOING INTO OUR JUNK FOLDERS WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS ****. DO YOU GET IT?????

    I would like the ability to block emails from going into my Junk mail.
    I would like the ability to block subject phrases. Today 6 emails almost identical in content. Email domains were different but in caps so I know they originated from the same place. We get junk mail in the multiples and would love to REALLY BLOCK THEM.
    So far the outlook team is incapable of allowing us to block ANYTHING from going into our JUNK FOLDERS.
    Why is that?

    Will you ever have a working filtering system that allows us to block emails domains, sub domains and subjects (like *** help, nail fungus etc.) FROM GOING INTO JUNK EMAIL??? Big deal we can block from going into inbox only. Our junk email is outta control...literally! PLEASE get a new filtering system! The one you have is worthless. Allow us to do the filtering by Blocking. We know what we want blocked! Hello how many emails about nail fungus and prostrate getting you hard emails does a person need in one day. These emails come from just a few sub-domains and subjects. We could pretty much eliminate this JUNK.

    MY POINT IS THE BLOCK FUNCTION ONLY BLOCKS FROM GOING INTO INBOX AND SENDS EVERYTHING TO OUR JUNK FOLDER. MYSELF AND ALL THE OTHERS WANT TO BLOCK DOMAINS, AND SUBDOMAINS FROM GOING INTO OUR JUNK FOLDERS!!!! I JUST VERIFIED THIS AGAIN. THAIS IS HOW IT IS WORDED WHEN GOING TO BLOCK SENDER LIST:

    BLOCKED SENDER AND DOMAINS
    MOVE EMAIL FROM THESE SENDERS OR DOMAINS TO MY JUNK EMAIL FOLDER.

    WE ARE TRYING TO ELIMINATE ALL THIS PHISHING AND SPAM FROM GOING INTO OUR JUNK FOLDER!!!!
    SO YOU HAVE MISSED THE POINT ENTIRELY!

    Thanks for using Outlook.com and for providing all of this great feedback! I just wanted to let you know and that we have reviewed the block functionality.

    I followed all of the steps in the main post, and sub posts and have been able to verify blocking is working. If you are still having issues with it please feel free to open up a new topic.

    To block an email you can select it and from the menu click the arrow down next to Junk. From there you can select block. It will pop up a screen to verify.

    Once you click yes, you can verify that the account was added by going into Settings (gear in the top right) and searching for block.

    hope this helps!

Because you do not answer me. Block the **** we block from going into our junk email. Let us FILTER IT! Our blocking a bazillion times should tell you that WE WANT IT GONE.... I WANT TO PERMANENTLY BLOCK THIS SPAM, PHISHING, **** GARBAGE FROM APPEARING IN MY JUNK FOLDER . IT HAS DOUBLED GET A DOZEN OF THE SAME EMAIL FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES AT THE SAME TIME!!!!

    We cannot block anything from going into our Junk email. I have been asking to block sub domains (suffix), I have also heard them called wildcards? Not sure of the correct name but reference the same.
    Subjects or key words in subjects. (Those same emails that come from multiple sources.)
    Now I am getting what I think to be spoofed emails I cannot read the return address or report without opening the email. Why are these even going through to my junk folder?
    If it goes to Junk is known Junk, Phishing, Spoofing, **** why can't they block it? When we click on Block we are giving them our permission to do just that. Block does not mean a thing!
    I hear back that they are doing something, should get better, might see help. Ruined the integrity blah blah blah. Outlook /Microsoft has done NOTHING. They rely on their inept filtering system to figure out what we have been telling them we want blocked. I am tired of the brush off, and the lies I have been getting. Just look at the amount of feedback concerning Spam/Junk email. It is up in the thousands.
    We get to vote on it. Yay that is seriously an insult!
    We hear crickets or lies from Microsoft/Outlook.

    We cannot "block" anything from appearing in our junk mail. We cannot block whole email addresses or domains. Like we used to with Hotmail.
    I have been asking for the ability to block (really block those again) , plus sub domains (certain portion of domain) and I also want to block subjects like Rock Hard. Warranties, Loans etc.
    Also if the address or subject has emojis, or does not match like Amazon with an address of xyzagilisaurus.site.
    I feel this should be dead giveaways they are scams, but when in doubt we should be able to click on block and actually BLOCK THEM from going to our inbox AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OUR OVERCROWDED JUNK EMAIL....
    I have gotten nowhere with OUTLOOK SUPPORT. They either can't or won't help.
    I should leave Outlook if it was not going to be such a pain in the butt. They are not trying to fix this problem for whatever reason I do not know. Sheesh look at all of the similar complaints. Yes they combine or say they complete to make it look less of an issue then it already is. But we are not fooled.
    Outlook does not value us as customers or they would fix the problem and not make us sign in and get approval to give some feedback to be voted on!

    Yes we should be able to block sub domains is what I call them. at least half of my junk mail comes from galsia.host and the rest another 2 or 3.
    We should be able to block certain subject phrases also. I currently am getting many on nail fungus, keto, CBD products. Next week it maybe flashlights, hot babes and loans.
    When we block it should be from Junk mail not just send them from inbox to junk.

    Get a new spam filter!!!! One that will let us block JUNK not just move it from inbox to junk. (you can not evenget that right). One that will let us block spam by subject matter (like I need 4 emails a day on nail fungus or Keto diet or many I report as phishing (taking out a loan or insurance).
    Also Block domains and sub domains like galsia.host.
