    If junk or ransomware emails are difficult to stop because of the false email addresses, why does the filter not work?
    If I put words in my filter such as 'BITCOIN' or 'I KNOW YOUR PASSWORD', or 'I WILL SEND PICTURES TO YOUR CONTACTS' etc etc and I want to block those words, or any part of them, so that they DON'T arrive in ANY part of my account, why do I still get them, when they can just be blocked and deleted at the exchange server?
    This is obviously such a BIG problem for a lot of people, and not just Hotmail addresses.
    BUT it high time that providers such as Microsoft sorted this out.
    Receiving all of this is harassment, is very distressing for many people, and obviously vulnerable people get taken in by it.
    It’s long overdue that email providers stopped this.
    And I for one wouldn’t care one bit if a few genuine emails get blocked before I get them.
    It IS for the greater good, and a small price to pay for the rubbish, the threats and the malware/viruses that could be delivered to the unwary, but under a new system of delivery, they are BLOCKED BEFORE receipt.
    GET THIS SORTED ASAP PLEASE!
    Otherwise after 20+ years of my Hotmail account, I will close my account and go to something like ProtonMail, and yes I have already been looking for better alternatives.

    Rules within settings.
    No matter how many rules I set to stop spam and ransomware etc from ever reaching my inbox or junk folder, they ALWAYS still manage to get there.
    For instance, I'll set a rule to stop ANY email from arriving by selecting 'subject or body includes', for example "your PC is infected", or "All your privacy".
    BUT I may as well have not bothered.
    I STILL get the same spam or threatening ransomware every day after.
    When does marking something as phishing mean that the same subject AND content can land in your junk folder the day after???
    I'm so sick of it.
    I signed up with Hotmail when it was first brought out, 20+ years ago.
    And the volume of stuff that arrives in my junk folder despite supposedly being blocked, is rising at an exponential scale, especially in recent years.
    I have to delete dozens of this rubbish EVERY SINGLE DAY!
    It's becoming clear that MS Outlook aren't interested, and considering I actually pay for 365, I find this unacceptable.
    There's clearly a lot of people out the with the same problem.
    PLEASE get this sorted out ASAP.
    Otherwise, I am actually considering closing my Hotmail account/email address.
