    The 'Block' feature is WORTHLESS. All it does is keep it from going to my inbox, but it instead lands in my junk e-mail. Why can't you just NOT put it anywhere and just reject it. If you are just going to send everything to the junk e-mail folder, then give us the ability to put rules and filters on the junk e-mail folder. I'm getting 100+ e-mails a day from just a couple of senders. Support@(value changes).de and senior@(value changes).com Unless you are profiting from selling our addresses and allowing these spammers to make it past your very weak (and I am being VERY GENEROUS with the term weak) spam filters then at least allow us to maintain our own filters THAT WORK.

    Are you seriously going to tell me that you can't figure out that of8255WO-eOuw-TT9F-gkfR-vfR0YyxJGNP5@TT9F.trardapy.top is not a valid e-mail and should be caught by your SPAM filter (IF you even have any). DO YOUR JOB

    Kevin Racicot commented  · 

    PLEASE BLOCK Support@*.de I get over 100 SPAM e-mails from them every day and you sit and do NOTHING. I noticed you did not post my last comment.

    Unless you want to start doing your job and filtering out this junk mail, PLEASE LET THE USERS SET UP RULES ON THE JUNK MAIL FOLDER - let US manage things you can't seem to get done. That is of course unless you are profiting from allowing the flood gates on spam to remain wide open. 150 e-mails today and counting. Not that I think you will take all these complains seriously.

    Does anyone from Outlook actually review these? We are SPOON FEEDING YOU the domains to block and where the problems lie. With all the issues listed on this site, seems like you have VERY FEW that you are actually have listed as 'Working on it' - everything else is 'Under Review'. How do we move this problem of EXCESSIVE SPAM from 'Under Review' to 'Working on it'? This is beyond ridiculous. I hope the kick backs you all get for allowing this much spam to come in is worth it to you all

    84 SPAM e-mail today so far and 73 of them came from sender Support@*******.de Not sure why you can't filter on these obvious spammers. How can I get a job with your technical team? I'd love to earn a paycheck and not have to do a **** thing. You guys/girls have go to do better. This is beyond ridiculous. My 6 year-old niece could do a better job filtering spam

    7:15 a.m. and you've broken your previous record of number of SPAM e-mails you have allowed into my junk mail folder. We are at 73 this morning and it appears that you just allowed the flood gates to be opened. Are you even attempting the simplest filtering before you allow this **** into our accounts? We have given you NUMEROUS examples of the **** senders and you have done NOTHING to add these to your filter. GIVE US THE ABILITY TO PUT RULES ON OUR JUNK MAIL FOLDER. IF YOU CAN'T DO YOUR JOBS - THEN WE CAN DO IT FOR YOU.

    it's only 8:23 a.m. and I have already had 50 span e-mails hitting my junk mail folder. Most of them from e-mail address Support@********.de (they keep changing the value of the ******* part so blocking them does no good. Can't you do a better job blocking these domains - or at least give USD the option of blocking domains in our Junk mail. If you won't do your job, then at least let us do it for you. You must be getting quite the kick back from these spammers to just let everything come through.

    Kevin Racicot commented  · 

    Do you even make an attempt to filter junk e-mails from reaching the customers? First I was getting all these 'subscriptions' attached to my account from e-mails that were Support@*******.de and now it seems that from@******.de the culprit. Why is it none of my other e-mail address accounts let junk e-mails into my account, but you just seem to let everything in. Do a better job or steal people from google and yahoo to help you with your e-mail filtering.

    Kevin Racicot commented  · 

    Do you all even try to stop anything from coming into our junk mail folders? Seems like you just allow anyone to send messages and you can't seem to block the obviously misconstructed e-mail addresses. If you don't want to do your job, then allow us - THE USERS - to set up our own SPAM filters on the JUNK MAIL FOLDER (and allow us to BLOCK ENTIRE DOMAINS). I am getting a sh*tload of e-mails from Supprt@*.de where they change the value of the * so blocking one address still allows every other combination in. If we could block *.*.de that would solve that problem. DO BETTER OR HIRE PEOPLE THAT WILL

    Do you filter ANYTHING on your end? Doesn't seem like it. I have way too many spam e-mails coming into my junk mail from malformed addresses that you should be able to flag as invalid. Everything seems to get through your filters and the filters I am allowed to create don't work on the junk mail. It can't be that hard to allow the users to create filters on their junk e-mail. If you won't get off your butts and fix this, then at least allow us users to do your job and block these spammers

    I have way too many unwanted 'subscriptions' hitting my account and even after I unsubscribe and block the sender, they show up in my subscription list every single day. Since Outlook won't let me block an entire domain (or allow the mail rules to work on the Junk folder), I keep getting my junk mail FULL. The online support is of no help. They keep saying a FIX is in thew works, but no ETA. I think if Outlook REALLY wanted to fix this they would have already. If Outlook is getting an error when I try to unsubscribe because the e-mail address they are trying to reach is malformed, then THEY should just block the entire domain to eliminate all this junk - UNLESS Outlook is making a profit by allowing the spam to hit our accounts.

    With just a simple couple of man hours working on filters, you all could reduce the SPAM making it to your customer's accounts - but instead, you seem to allow anything that anyone sends. It's obvious that these are malformed e-mail addresses and would not be valid. Still, you just stand back and let everything pass by. If you would allow US to filter on the junk folder, we could do most of the heavy lifting for you. LET US BLOCK ENTIRE DOMAINS - we keep seeing the same domains but with slightly different addresses. HELP STOP THIS
