    Subscription email option is just a spam option that keeps getting exploited. I really thought you fixed it for about two months when those @appspot domains kept adding themselves to the subscription email option without any interaction from myself. GET RID OF THIS ****!!! You obviously can't or won't fix it. So, why is it still there as an option that nobody asked you to create? Don't send me a scripted email response. I don't need one. Just fix it or axe it. Better thought in addition to this that you won't fix, how about you completely block @appspot.com along with a host of other domains that aren't doing anything except sending nothing but spam garbage!

    Senders automatically being added to subscriptions. Please stop this from happening. It's bad enough you won't give us the option to turn this **** off, but you allow people to add **** to the headers of the email so they can spam us with ads. I know this is part of the subscription option that you implemented, because I've gotten email from online retailer's that I bought something from, never subscribed to their email when purchasing from them, and then received an email from them without even opening the email, they are automatically added to that stupid subscription option that you insist that nobody can turn off.

    Don't write me back with worthless workarounds. I've tried numerous things with this stupid subscription implementation that don't work. Besides the fact that you give us useless options for subscriptions that don't really do anything. Don't write me back until you've added the option to disable this ****.

    I found out that these punks have figured out that if they put something in the header, they will automatically get put in your "subscription" options list that's not useful to anybody but spammers. It doesn't matter if its a spammer or somebody you legitimately do business with. I noticed this yesterday when Home Depot sent me an email yesterday from one of their many addresses that has to do with feedback from a recent purchase I made from them even though that email ended up in the junk mail folder. I noticed it again when under armour sent me an email from one of their many, different legitimate email addresses today as well. I've mentioned this to the Outlook.com feedback team and they ignore it or they add that stupid, useless option to the subscriptions option to block the sender that automatically added them themselves to your subscription list. That new option to the subscription option is useless, because one, blocked addresses/domains has a limit on how many addresses/domains you can block, and two, they will not let us block domains which most of these multi-spam, multiple sub-address domain emails, are from the same freaking parent domain address.

    Looks they are addiment about not doing their job of actually fixing this or actually care to fix it. Make an option to get rid off that stupid subscription option that is proliferating this issue, and let us block domains.
