    Agree with these folks, I send out e-mails and then when I talk to the person in person when that is an option, they tell me they never got it, once sent.

    We need 2 things, a DELIVERY receipt to let us know it made it to their e-mail account {even if it ended up in their Deleted or Junk Folder} and a READ receipt so that we know they actually opened it and at least looked at it!

    I agree, I have hundreds if not thousands of BLOCKED addresses, yet these folks still get through. I even tried adding filters to stop them or at least have them all go to the JUNK FOLDER, but many still end up right in my INBOX. This should NOT be happening!

    Agree! I also get tons of scams, ***** garbage I DO NOT WANT, and phishing e-mails in my JUNK FOLDER with MY E-MAIL address as the sender, which changes my profile photo as well, these offensive E-Mails could be BLOCKED if I could BLOCK MY OWN E-MAIL ADDRESS from within the same E-Mail account.

    Don't know how many times I've told Microsoft to implement this, it used to work in the older E-Mail accounts before they made all these blasted so-called "improvements" that have taken a lot of good options away from the end user. They need to be put the DELETE AND DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM SERVER , as well as the ability to BLOCK YOUR OWN E_MAIL INSIDE THE SAME ACCOUNT where all this garbage spews into, they really do need to put these back in place!

    #1 You should NOT be able to send yourself an e-mail within your own account. Personally I see no real use or reason for that.

    #2. You should be able to BLOCK your own e-mail address. My address has been used by SCAMMERS that does go to my Junk Folder, but when I try to BLOCK them I get "Can't BLOCK your own e-mail address! Why Not, if I could, I could stop getting these blasted phishing scams and other scammers out of my junk box and never see them because they always come in with MY E-Mail address FORGED as the sender. And I know dadgum good and well I don't send scams or any other stuff to myself from within the SAME ACCOUNT! From a different account, possibly if I have something I need in 2 places, but rarely do I do that, very rarely, and even then it's coming from a different e-mail account, NOT the SAME ACCOUNT I am currently in and reading!

    Just discovered something, if you have any JUNK or any E-Mail that has had your E-Mail Address FORGED to it, an e-mail that shows you sent yourself the E-Mail from the same account you're in {which shouldn't even be possible!}.

    Anyway, if ANY of these E-Mails have a photo or initial bubble attached to it and it's NOT DELETED entirely from your account, it will PREVENT your profile photo from reverting back to what it was.

    I was saving these blasted things {over 30+ of them in my ILLEGAL FORGED E_MAILS}, and my profile photo would not update or change no matter what I did, UNTIL I discovered that DELETING all those FORGED E-Mails with MY E-Mail address attached to them were gone, THEN and ONLY THEN did my profile photo change back to what I had set it too! But I did have to refresh the page to make it reappear!

    MICROSOFT, YOU NEED TO FIX THIS!

    And the best way would be to be able to BLOCK your own E-Mail address that is the same one in the account you are currently in that the FORGER is using that makes the E-Mail look like you sent it to yourself. This would stop this in its tracks! If your E-Mail is xyz@whatever.com then you should be able to block a FORGED E-Mail of that address from some scammer using it!

    And how about bring back the option to NOT DOWNLOAD this junk from the server in the first place?

    The the oldest Hotmail accounts you could do this, I see no way of doing this in the newest version of Hotmail or Outlook!

    Why was this option taken away? It was a good one to prevent this kind of forged mail into your account in the first place! Which these type E-Mails can contain viruses or other harmful things that could do nasty things to your computer.

    So a really good option gets taken away that actually made E-Mail safer. That did not seem to be a smart move in my opinion. It needs to be brought back!
