    fraud - outlook should be able to identify if an emails true sender is masked to miss represent who they are. this is fraud as well as phishing, and outlook should not deliver a fraud masked email to any receiver folder not in box, not junk, etc.

    also, an even bigger problem. noting "i did not request"; how do all these subscriptions get in the list when not requested or sites not visited????? very bad.

    Also, many of these you cannot unsubscribe to. is says we will direct you to their web site to unsubscribe. That is like opening a web site from an email. This in contrary to safe web practices. I'm even afraid to go to the sites to unsubscribe to them. they are bogus in the first place and shouldn't be in any list associated with my email. this IS A MAJOR SECURITY CONCERN AND ISSUE

    why won't microsoft provide users the capability to choose to not receive certain emails? e.g. return to sender undelivered, would sure clean up the junk folder!

    the rules have never worked. most people use rules to block unwanted emails hoping to keep their junk folder small enough to review for emails they consider valid. Since junk folder is the destination folder for blocked emails, nothing is really getting blocked. We need a real block function in the rules. something like: "do not deliver, return to sender (Elvis) as not deliverable"

    block sender - you just reported block sender as complete by issuing instructions on how to block an email. closing this with instructions misses the hundreds of complaints and suggestions about how users want to deal with blocking emails and not allowing them go get delivered at all. So closing this one without addressing all the underlying comments is not listening to the users. add rules to return to sender not delivered and do not place them in the junk folder or any other folder is user marks them as do not deliver. please help us.

    the above is a good post. Microsoft should be much more aggressive identifying and stopping phishing emails. even placing them in the junk folder to let the user decide is weak. for example Masked emails are by their very definition fraud. having a phisher / frauduster MASK Apple, Amazon, Costco, my banks, even my own email address as the sender and then place attachments or web sites in the email is the basic phish. can't reply because the sender email is fake, must not open attachments or web sites from within an email (very bad) Conclusion: IT IS A PHISHING. Please get on these things they scare the **** out of all of us, with all the identity theft going on. These masked emails have been around for some time now and no action by outlook. please treat all Masked senders as phishers and do not even deliver them.

    masked emails. can't block an email that has my email address masked over the actual sender, hiding the real sender. You should be able to know the real source and block it, not tell me you can't block my email address.

    please ***** down on fraudulent emails. "BOUNCE THEM BACK TO SENDER AS UNDELIVERABLES" . I keep receiving emails that say they are from amazon or costco, etc. when they really are NOT. You should be able to determine false senders and not allow them to be delivered. STOP FRAUD NOW.
    thank you.

    I am still getting way to many emails in my junk folder that have my email addressed masked over who the real sender is.

    IN THIS DAY OF IDENTIFY THEFT, THIS IS AT THE VERY LEAST DANGEROUS TO ALLOW ANONYMOUS SENDERS TO STEAL SOMEONES EMAIL ADDRESS.

    YOU SHOULD SHUT THIS PRACTICE DOWN

    Anonymous commented  · 

    why won't you let users "block" emails with a rule. I am getting 50 plus emails per day in my junk folder with a .bid suffix. Getting really fed up with it.

    add an option to the rules that allows a email receiver to deny receiving (e.g. bounce as not deliverable) undesirable emails!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nothing causes a user to distrust an email system more than seeing their own email address masked onto an email showing them as the sender. It also opens up more possibilities for identity fraud.
    Microsoft and outlook must do something to ***** down on this masking. It is not responsible to allow it to continue.

    since Microsoft refuses to block emails from the junk folder and chooses to put all blocked items in the junk folder, consider this:
    Give the user the ability to "bounce" emails in any folder back to the sender making it look to the sender like the email address does not exist.
    I think that would make a lot of users very happy.
