    I see no change in the way you block senders and domains. I still have the same domains coming into my account that I did a year and a half ago. The problem I see is Outlook needs to give each email user the ability to block the domains, stop dumping block emails every 14 days or so and start being part of the solution and not the problem. Right now I am receiving someone else's spam emails. How do I know this? BECAUSE MY EMAIL ADDRESS OR MY NAME IS NOT ON THESE EMAILS. Give me a break and fix it so I can do the job Outlook will not or can not do.

    I seem to see when perusing the comments that maybe everyone needs to go to Gmail or somewhere else that has solved the problem of being inundated with junk emails. Maybe Outlook needs to review how long a issue can be under review and actually do something about user's concerns. October 15, 2019 really? Combining issues might be nice but the oldest comment is in 2018 and still nothing is being done. Come on what is taking so long?

    I agree with the user below. What good does it do if a blocked email keeps coming in? Going to the blocked senders and domains does not work either. I have found that even blocking a email does not work because in so many days the blocked email servers dump these emails back into the system and I start all over again. How about a way to block the domains of junk emails to permanently block them from coming into user's accounts? Even better how about blocking junk emails that are not on the user's safe sender list.

    I can say this line should be true: "Microsoft's software engineers are smart enough to make this simple line of code happen...." Yet I think the fact is in question of whether they (Microsoft) really want to help stop the problem. I agree this should be simple, but I don't know how many letters I get from Outlook support saying, These spammers have figured a way to fool the servers and send spam at will. Yet I have seen instances of people asking for help and there is no response. The drop down that asks users to mark unwanted emails as phishing and then ask them to block them, DOES NOT WORK TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM. If this solved the problem I would want it. Yet there are over 4 billion+ IP addresses and spammers change IP addresses at will. The drop down only does one email at a time and then it is only for the newsletter.usefq4ksd6z5.xspcqbkmgn@floral-ace.com
    newsletter.cqmdwxfxy4gu2p.sjqvtmjuks@xtraplaza.us
    newsletter@chairbeg.xyz

    and not the domains .com, .us, or .xyz. I have lots of unwanted email addresses and dates they are blocked. That is why I know what I have blocked and what domains come back day after day, month after month year after year. Microsoft or Outlook I don't care who does it. Let's get someone who can code or someone who will okay a tool to block the domain of unwanted emails and give it to users to determine on their own if this domain needs to be blocked.
    I would think whoever should fear a user of Outlook or Microsoft getting scammed by accidentally clicking on a unwanted email and having their privacy and safety compromised. Things could be so simple, yet this process is slow and cumbersome.

    There are times when accessing the message source of individual spam emails in the Junk email folder the emails I click on, do not turn to showing they have been read. That makes it difficult to find my place of blocking each email I want to block. It would be nice if the cursor remains at the email I am working on instead of returning to the top each time I have to leave and come back.

    When blocking the emails I am sometimes called away before I finish the whole list. The returning to the last or newest spam email loses which spam email message source I last checked. I am very adamant about getting all spam emails out of my account. It makes no sense that Outlook cannot give users the tool or ability to block domains instead of one spam email at a time. It is even more ludicrous to not give the user the ability to block all domains permanently in degrading the reputation of ALL unwanted emails.

    I think Outlook needs to reassess their drop down box as it does no good. It just does one junk email and the same email comes back again and again under a different domain or the same domain. My opinion is: allowing their junk email servers to dump every ten days does not solve the problem. That is because the dumping of blocked domains i.e. junk emails only allows the unwanted emails to come back over and over again. Outlook needs to put our safety and privacy as a priority and not as a way to make money. Otherwise why is their not a tool that does something in a permanent way? I too look through my junk email folder for emails I want and are marked as junk. Imagine if one were gone on a personal or business trip looking through hundreds of junk emails on the chance Outlook has marked junk a important email. Time consuming and unnecessary. When a tool I.E. button or box can be checked or clicked to target the domain. Permanently blocked and not for ten days and not after a survey to find enough people that wants it done too. Every email user has different preferences and priorities. Mine is to get rid of all the unwanted emails whether in the inbox or junk email folder.

    In doing more research for blocking domains, I find the blocked senders and domains file does not do anything for someone who wants to block an unwanted email. I am not sure what it's function is except to give the email owner, who wants to get block an unwanted email, the feeling they have blocked and stopped an unwanted email from coming into their account.

    Here are two examples of blocking the same emails and the dates I have blocked them. They are only eight days apart.
    8/5/20- clickbottom.us
    8/13/20- clickbottom.us
    Talk about Outlook giving no support or help to stem users being inundated with unwanted emails. How long to approve posts in this forum?

    Here is a disturbing example of the spam I receive and only enhances the need for a tool to prevent spam. This spam invades my email account, violating my privacy and safety. This spam email with addresses found in the message source.

    What also bothers me is someone has been pleading for action, since 2017. Nine of the eleven comments are not in this year 2020. Why is Outlook waiting? I hope we are not solely waiting for a survey. I have spent over a year and a half doing what Outlook support tells me to do. From blocking IP addresses (whack-mole) as if they did not know spammers change their IP address and domain like we would our dirty underwear. Mention one domain that you have been trying to block and they stop that and send another domain you had blocked previously. We need to have action or the ability to do the job on our own.

    I think everybody needs to understand that having this tool, will empty out their junk email folder too. Yes, you can let Outlook empty out your junk email folder in 10 days, only to have more unwanted emails coming in daily. But I want everybody to realize, if you are like me, constantly looking in the junk email folder for emails that are not junk and should be in my inbox. You could really help out and advocate for a tool that will eliminate in the end most if not all unwanted emails by blocking permanently the domain. I am hearing that Outlook is afraid to give us a tool to do this for fear of getting sued. Now that is worrying to me because it tells me that Outlook knows who is putting all these spam emails into our account and is refusing to lessen our worry about our safety and privacy.

    By blocking all domains not on my safe sender list. I can stop all spam, junk and phishing emails. So I want a tool to do that. I find using the drop down only blocks or identifies that one email. Also in blocking it is only blocked until the server dumps after ten days. Then those emails are free to come back. In degrading the reputation does not work either for the same reason. In ten days the domain comes back because of the dumping of the server that stores the blocked domains. Blocking the domain gets a group and not individual emails. I am tired of having 35-40 unwanted emails coming into my account daily and also concerned about getting other email account users' spam emails too. This includes their email addresses.
