    It seems every way I try to keep the junk folder clean there is some specific reason I cannot do it. I cannot run rules against the junk folder. I cannot block email address that contain only specific parts so when spammers just change their domain the blocking does not good. If I create a rule off of a specific email address I can run it but as soon as I edit it to say contains only a part of that email, the run option disappears. I only block domains. I cannot bock something if part of that domain is in the domain so again as spammers just constantly add random domains, I am left with litteraly just under 1000 emails a day in my junk folder, which I have to sift through because I cannot turn off spam filtering and Hotmail thinks some legitimate emails should go to spam so I have to hunt for them to make sure I didn't miss something important. It is almost like they do this on purpose. What is the end game here?
