    SPAM email suddenly arriving in my inbox. Unlike some who have reported lots of SPAM getting to their inbox for months or years, Outlook SPAM filtering has generally been great for me—until today: 2019.07.08. Suddenly, over the last 8 hours or so, about 9 or 10 obvious SPAM and even phishing email scams have made it into my focused inbox. I want to report this separately in case some server-side changes were made today. I have not made any changes on the client side. Please do not take the lazy way out and suggest that I configure outlook to only allow email from addresses in my safe senders list. My Junk email configuration was working fine for more than a year—until today.

    P.S. I don't recommend clicking on unsubscribe buttons to any unknown sources--even from a secure sandbox--as it will potentially expose you to increased spam once your email address is confirmed as active.

    Mike Glenn commented  · 

    The new Outlook.com Settings -> Mail -> Subscriptions feature is poorly conceived and not suitable for public release. The list in my account contains numerous spam sources that I don't recognize, never interacted with and certainly would not have subscribed to. Worst of all, there's no way to remove subscriptions I never requested other than by clicking an unsubscribe button which links directly to these dodgy websites. This is extremely insecure and potentially exposes Outlook users to malware as well as increased exposure to spam. I browsed to a couple of these unsubscribe links from a secure sandbox and found the links were invalid/broken, so even if Microsoft has some kind of deal with these sources of spam, the entities are not keeping up their end of the bargain. I'm curious who approved this feature for public release in its current form.

    Come on people. To think you can get email service for free is magical thinking. By now you should realize, either you pay for the product or YOU are the product. I love being ad-free with my Office 365 subscription. However, I agree ads should NEVER be flashing, jumping or using other annoying attention-getting methods—unless you're trying to drive all free users away on purpose.

    I'm surprised there aren't a lot more votes for this. VIP is a killer feature in Samsung's email app and shows only unread VIP email count in badges when activated instead of a meaningless huge number. Why can't Microsoft do this?

    Mike Glenn commented  · 

    Please add a feature to mark people/senders as VIPs with the ability to sort/prioritize emails accordingly, but also set the notification badge to only show the count for new VIP emails instead of all emails. I discovered how incredibly useful this last feature was when I tried Samsung email. Otherwise, I would have deleted it in favor of Outlook email.

    Thank you for your feedback! This feature is planned and will come to the beta in a future update. We will reply back when it is available.

    Mike Glenn commented  · 

    P.S. I realize we can now highlight a sender's address in the Outlook.com details pane and click Show More to see some or all of their past emails. However, this new feature requires more clicks (buried more deeply). Furthermore, the resulting list lacks interactive features such as select all, so this is not an adequate replacement for hover or right-click Find All. Thanks for listening to our feedback.

    Mike Glenn commented  · 

    I actually love the new Outlook.com, but, for me, the lack of hover or right-click over sender to Find All was the biggest loss in the transition. Why has it been more than 18 months and still we don't have this feature back or any status update? This is apparently not an internal priority, but it's very important for users.

    Really missing right-click Send to OneNote in Outlook.com beta.
