    People, you're wasting your collective breath. Microsoft Outlook doesn't care what you think or how bad your experience is. You will not receive satisfaction. They will not fix filtering so that you can use it in any Outlook mailbox. They simply won't! So, just sit there and sift through your hundreds of emails in your Junk mailbox each day - looking for that one email that may have gotten there by mistake.

    Thank you Priyank,

    I appreciate your attention to this, and your support. I will go ahead and report as you suggested, but my interpretation is that this is a losing battle as these trash companies breed new email addresses and domains constantly. And, IMHO, if the solution is to not have these trash emails in our Inboxes, but just push them over to our Junk boxes, you're missing the point. Give users the power to decide how to filter email, like my suggestion that we be able to enter a character string that is common across many domain names, and we'll handle the problem. As I mentioned to you before, a very significant number of the domain names end in ".de". Give me the ability to filter ANY mail box and tell it to DELETE mail from any domain that includes .de, or other problematic domains, and I'll be happy. Then if an safe, expected email accidentally gets sent to Junk, I won't have to read through 100 trash emails in Junk each day so I don't miss that important email. Maybe I'm missing something, but this really looks like a simple fix to me. As a financial analyst, I coded things like this all the time.

    Or simpler still, allow filtering on Junk or any other email box. I'd simply tell filtering to delete any email with ".de" in the domain name (or other .XX extensions). You know, when problems like this linger, it makes me question whether the problem solvers really want to solve the problem....
