    Yep. Same here.

    yep same, it seems to happen to me every couple of weeks, outlook help say there is nothing wrong with this spam filters.

    Adjust security settings to send all emails to junk and use safe mailing and safe senders list to authorise real emails. Only way out. I had a lot of spam day and night and that's only thing I can think of.

    exaclty I'm getting around 50 a day in my Hotmail. and my spam is full so I can't even put anymore into spam directly so they come into my inbox so.annoyed with Hotmail

    Would be ok if I could delete all from junk folder on iPhone. Silly they took that function away

    Go into your settings and then choose options, then click on 'Filters and options' and adjust your settings, definately set to 'EXCLUSIVE'

    Just had one asking if I'm going to die of a heart attack!!

    Mines the same, sick and tired of supposedly blocking and it not working. Get a lot now that when I try to block it says it can't because the email address isn't valid, also get some that appear to come from my own email address as well which you can't block.

    Exactly the same here!! So frustrating. They really need to up their game and sort out the settings not having any issues on other providers email accounts.

    Maybe need to start a petition so they take notice

    The less than / more than symbols () are a pain, I can't block any of them as they're not valid characters.
    I'm constantly setting up new inbox rules to move emails to junk and delete, fortunately they seem to be working for viagra and meds, though I'm still being 'selected' for various supermarket vouchers and Trivago scams

    Omg this is literally driving me crazy. I think I get about 30 a day and I add them to the block domain but still more n more come!

    switched from Hotmail to Gmail years ago for this very problem

    Honestly didn't know hotmail was still a thing. Get a google account.

    Over the last few weeks I've been getting countless bingo, betting, slots and other rubbish.
    It just doesn't seem to filter it out, something must have changed in the past few months with their spam filters.

    Yep me too. Annoying the hell out of me. I ticked the boxes on the spam email and sent it from my inbox into the junk folder, then ticked the boxes again within the junk folder and then selected block. So far I haven't seen so many today yet
