    To the Outlook engineers/programmers. I am a retired software test analyst/UAT, I'm giving this suggestion for free ;) You are having loads of complaints about the Junk folder being inundated with phishing mails, no matter how many times you try blocking them they just change the Hieroglyphics (number and letter jumbles) within the email address and just keep inundating the junk/inbox. My suggestion to you is to allow 'wildcards' to be used to stop these emails.
    e.g. Support@A3hd.de Support@s9e9kd.de etc. etc. all you need to do is allow a 'block' to be applied to Support@input 2 asterix here.de the two asterix being the wildcard which will ignore the hieroglyphics thereby freeing up the junk mail which you will then be able to check to see if any genuine emails have inadvertently ended up there, as it stands I do not have the time or patience to sift the literally hundreds of daily junk I, and thousands of others, are receiving.

    same here, been with outlook for over 20 years myself. now I am inundated EVERY DAY with spam emails mainly from "support.de" with loads of hyrogliphics in between the support and .de therefore blocking them has no actual effect
