    Welcome to the graveyard of comments, suggestions, requests and demands for improvement. I suspect the "Admin" on this topic must have succumb to COVID, as there's been no follow-up, comment or response since October 15, 2019.

    ATTN: ANYONE WHO PLANS TO COMMENT HERE! If you scan through the comments you'll see everyone has a similar complaint. Yes there is an unresolved issue with the handling of inbound emails by Outlook.com. And based on my experience MS has no intention of fixing the issue.

    Understand this:

    If you set up a Rule to block, delete or otherwise handle certain inbound emails, it will only work for your INBOX.

    If your frustration is because the email(s) targeted by the Rule you created continues to land in the JUNK folder, it's because the Outlook Junk Mail Filter automatically bypassed your INBOX & your INBOX Rule(s) and placed it in the Junk Mail folder. You have ZERO CONTROL over this and MS clearly has no intention of changing the program to satisfy your desire to have it work better.

    "UNDER REVIEW" means squat if you don't do anything. Evidently this complaint forum is merely a purgatory for frustrated users that continue to be ignored by MS. Hey ADMIN are you MS or just their messenger?

    Give us, the USERs, the ability decide to which folder a composed rule applies. Currently composed Rules only apply to Messages landing in the Inbox. If the buit-in MS Junk Email filter directs such messages to the Junk Email folder, a User composed Rule won’t be invoked.
    If you can’t do that, then allow a User to switch OFF the MS Junk Email filter. Either way solves the problem of literally thousands of complaint users.
    Meanwhile it took a week of back ‘n forth with the Support team explaining the problem and the cause before they referred me to UserVoice. Instead they repeatedly And ridiculously made the suggestion that I simply add each offending user address to my Safe Sender list so the Inbox Rule I composed would function. I receive approximately 50 of these emails per day and each user address Is newsletter@*.* (each has a different ISP). And . . . The ISP is never repeats. NEED I SAY MORE?

    As suggested by tech support, I am requesting it be possible sync the Drafts folder between the server and mobile application of Outlook Mobile.
