Spam on Microsoft Accounts

Jul 24, 2018 8:43AM PDT

Is Microsoft just giving us the run around on SPAM? I am now getting 70-80 SPAM emails a day on one account. Most go to SPAM, but they are over and over the same topics - which I block. It makes it difficult to rescue legitimate messages from SPAM with this quantity. If the messages are the same over and over with different garbled email addresses, why are we still receiving them even though they are blocked? Do we need a NOMOROBO for MS SPAM? MS is apparently giving "lip service" to blocking.

What goes to the SPAM bucket did not go through.

That's what they think so if you think otherwise, you will be unhappy.

If you have known topics that should be deleted, then look for rules in your email app for that. Delete.

Few email services really block it from the spam bucket since false detections happen and we have to check the spam folder.

-> Also, if this is a free service then you will be also upset since they don't work it that hard, if at all. I find Gmail to be much better on spam control.

First of all MS or any ISP won't block any emails.

If you get sent an email the provider doesn't pre scan your emails it delivers and then it places it in the inbox or junk based on your criteria and some industry know criteria. ISP don't blocks emails so they don't guess wrong and block an important email.
