    Marking as spam and blocking essentially does the same thing it's useless and infuriating; if you block an address it should not even come in, at worst it should automatically be put in the trash folder.

    I don't think you understand. It makes no sense to have two buttons that do the exact same thing. If the junk button sends the email to the junk folder, and the block button does the same thing, it makes no sense. I believe what may have happened is that Microsoft changed the functionality of the block and exclusive setting so that they don't work the way they have worked in the past. The definition of block means to block someone, not to reroute them. In the past, when you blocked someone, their email was blocked from your email account, not routed to the junk folder. In this newest forced version of Outlook mail, I have noticed that Microsoft seems to have removed the Exclusive setting entirely, and recently it didn't block spammers anymore. So, our privacy is becoming less and less important, probably because Microsoft sees more value for advertisements, and less value to the privacy of its customers. Most email accounts are free, and if Microsoft shuts out the advertisers from sending us spam, how can advertisers make money, or websites make money? And advertisers are a big part of revenue, just like on TV. It doesn't matter anymore that most of the spammers are really shady characters who try to steal your bank account information or scam you out of your money. And, when you unsubscribe from an email, these shady characters just send you a half dozen emails of the same ad that you just unsubscribed from. I had used the Exclusive setting before, and it shut down all junk mail. But, when I applied it recently, I still got junk mail. The Exclusive Setting use to mean that no one could send you email who wasn't in your contacts or safe senders list. It was a good way to lock down your email account from spammers. But recently, the Exclusive setting just sent the spam to the junk mail folder too. And in the latest forced Outlook update, Microsoft seems to have just removed the Exclusive setting altogether. I guess greed is taking over the world, and our privacy means nothing over profit potential or advertisement revenue, and its going to make the internet a very dangerous place. I believe it will probably come to the point where less people will use the internet because it will just be too dangerous.

    Why take away this option? I appreciate you greatly for calling out that you removed / banned it and an opportunity for us to advocate getting it back.
    If replying back to emails with new memebers often the original members or new parties will ask for the attachement instead of going and looking for it, so this option would be extremely helpful. And yes, I understand the way you can get back to the original item but a lot of times chains add, remove, take offline and then re-add people so a user won't have all the info which is contained in 'the chain' and have to ask for it. As these aren't always A->B conversations sometimes they're A->B->A->C->B->F
