    Allow the ability to drag a subfolder to the top level like Hotmail used to allow.

    Before Outlook.com moved to the Office 365 back end, adding an address or domain to the Blocked Sender list meant that messages from that address or domain would not be delivered to the mailbox. Now all it means is that the message is delivered to Junk Email. The Exclusive setting already does that, so Blocked Senders is much less useful. Please reinstate the behavior of discarding messages from Blocked Senders. Thanks.

    Blocking a domain is already supported. Just put domain.com in the blocked sender list.

    This is not a good idea because spammers don't use their own addresses when sending. All you'll do with this is send the spam to a non-existent mailbox (and so you'll get another non-delivery report) or you'll be a spammer yourself, sending the message back to some innocent person whose address was spoofed.

    There already is a Junk button on the menu bar when you select a message.

    The feature you request (mail from non-contact senders moving to the Junk Email folder) already exists. Set your junk filter to "Exclusive" and only messages from your Safe Senders or Contacts will be delivered to Inbox. All else will be delivered to the Junk Email folder.

    The Junk Email folder can already be emptied with a single operation. Select the folder and "Empty folder" will appear on the menu bar. You can also right-click it and choose "Empty folder" from the context menu.

    The Blocked and Safe Senders lists are already alphabetized.

    Junk mail isn't delivered to the Deleted Items folder, it's delivered to the Junk E-mail folder.

    > There should be an automatic purge of all junk mail.

    There is an automatic purge, according to Microsoft. An item in the Junk E-mail folder should be deleted after 10 days. Moreover, you do not have to open the Junk E-mail folder to empty it. Just right-click it and choose "Empty folder".

    It is already possible to block by domain. Simply add the domain (the material after the @) to the blocked senders list. Messages from that domain will then be placed in the Junk E-mail folder instead of Inbox.

    The ability to delete messages based on subject content is and has always been available. It applies only to messages delivered to Inbox, though. Rules don't apply to the Junk folder. Why should they? It's junk. Just empty it.

    There certainly is a "block all mail to inbox not on contact list" filter and there always has been one. For the "Outlook Mail" interface of Outlook.com, Click the Options gear, then Options. In the options pane, click "Filters and reporting" Under the "Junk Email" section. Select the radio button labeled "Exclusive".

    For the "old" Outlook.com interface, click the Options gear, then Options, then "Filters and reporting" in the right-hand column. Select the "Exclusive" radio button.

    All mail not from your contacts or from addresses in the safe lists will be delivered to the Junk E-mail or Junk folder.

    If you set the accounts up as IMAP you can copy messages from one account's folders to the other's. Once your accounts transition to the Office 365 platform, you'll be able to have them both Exchange account, which will also allow it.

    You can do this by opening a new InPrivate browser window and logging into another account in that window. You can also do it by using a second web browser.

    Open a new InPrivate browser session or use a separate browser and you can have multiple accounts open at the same time.

    There is another suggestion for this. You should vote for it. Microsoft said they're working on it.

    You can do this already. Log into each account using a different browser or using a different InPrivate window.
