    Total blocking option also for the phone app would be great. And safe list/ block list option for the app would be essential! Also it seems that the algorithm does not understand that if you are on a mailing list you may choose to directly delete 90% of the emails unread but STILL want to stay on the list because 10% of the emails interest you so it’s not spam. Also when you report spam on app, it might not be spam for someone else so it’s insane to mark everything reported spam for everyone (unless it’s phishing of course), we are individuals with individual interests. Also adding senders to safe list doesn’t really work because of the before mentioned. So my safelist sender goes directly to spam because someone else reported it as spam? Also emails on my safe list go directly to deleted folder but phishing from some random dude will enter Inbox! To me hotmail/ outlook hasn’t worked that well for so long now but I still keep it because I’ve had it ‘forever’. So in short, please give us better tools to control the spam nightmare! Also in the app! Thank you!

    It’s so annoying and SO FRUSTRATING that you keep deleting emails I want to keep. You delete regularly the emails from the same sender and I keep restoring them and seconds after you delete them AGAIN!?!?!?

    Also, one person's junk is other person’s gold so the most idiotic function ever is to ask ’do you want to report this email so we can delete it from other people’s mailing list also blah blah’

    We people are (still) individuals and this kind of group mentality is so stupid!!! You have all the money in the world to make this work and you won’t??

    I get 20 spam emails from @freeyampa address daily and they all go to my inbox. The emails I want to receive, go to my junk mail. Also, if you report phishing on freeyampa, all Outlook does is sends these spammers unsubscribe message, and that triples the spam, because then they have your email address and they know that someone is using it. This kind of spammers should be criminalized. This @freeyampa cannot be blocked because they have special way of creating zillions of addresses for @freeyampa ending. Super annoying.

    I have 2192 items ready to be recovered. They are just hanging there in deleted folder forever. I don't want to recover them, ever. I just want to get rid of them, why can't I have that option??
