    Same here. Not sure what's going on with Junk filtering, I've noticed an increase in incredibly obvious phishing/spam going to my inbox over the last ~6 months ish. And this is after years of having the same hotmail account and having the spam filtering actually be pretty decent up until this point. Feels like something changed and broke it?

    I report it every time, sometimes they're even dupes of things I've reported the previous day, all really obvious spam/phishing ("buy bitcoin" "you've got a tax return, click here to claim" "your account has been blocked just click here to log in" "you've won a prize" - or emails claiming to be from myself, etc, etc, etc). Interestingly a bunch of them are "image" emails - where the body of the spam has been embedded in a large image, so wondering if that's where the filter is falling down.

    But all in all really irritating, I'm having to manually junk emails on a nearly daily basis.
