How do I view 'Blocked sender' and 'Safe sender' List - Outlook.com? Solved

    How do I view 'Blocked sender' and 'Safe sender' List - Outlook.com?


    Background - Like a lot of people on here I have had/still having my share of junk emails. I have played around with 'Filters' until I'm blue in the face, and still they get through.

    The latest 'beta' version of Outlook.com comes with a handy 'Block' button in the 'junk Email' section, HOWEVER, there does not seem to be anywhere to view either blocked senders or even Safe Senders. So how can I check what is going where?

    The obvious place would have been 'Account Options' but no, no sign of either. As far as I can tell these 2 lists are nowhere to be found.

    Has anybody else noticed this and/or found them?

    Thanks

    Hi pdoth.

    Ya a little gap there and its been reported in Feedback. You also seem to lose all control on "sweep" and that was a nice function.

    Can you drop out of Beta by sliding switch that got you in. Then gear, option, under the heading Junk email.

    I noticed yesterday if you unblock a person or domain their mail appears in Junk. You then have to go into junk and mark not junk.

    This sort of makes sense as the old Block button would appear for items in junk and not inbox.

    MS wants feedback on Beta, please join the cause and ask them WTF. So much functionality is being dropped. I guess if only a small percentage use then they are saying why are we maintaining. Maybe the plan will be to up sell to bought mail. Of course losing functionality that Gmail has will just mean a lot of good byes, I enjoyed our time together.

    Thanks Ken, I have got back a little more of my sanity by your comments. Its certainly scary to think these guys are in charge of Microsoft when they make 'simple' errors of judgements like this. Are we all doomed?

    On a slightly different topic, there is also an issue with 'Conversations'. It just don't make any sense to hide the original message inside your reply in the In-Box. I had that cold sensation down the back a little while ago when I thought a VERY important email had disappeared down the back of motherboard only to find it tucked up with a bunch of other messages. If you are going to bundle everything up in one conversational least give us an easy way of unbundling it so we can see who said what to whom

    Agree. I like message view, not conversation. They are all heading the way of conversation. In gmail on browser you can still choose but if you use gmail app on phone there is no choice. At least the last time I checked.

    The suppliers are saying "You will change and you will like it !!!".

    I wonder again out loud, is this the set up punch that has us being offered these "Features" in paid mail.

    It's aggravating that there's no longer a Safe Senders list. One of many conveniences that Microsoft keeps taking out. It seems that hundreds of complaints over multiple weeks on one item, such as Conversation mode, have no effect. I just don't understand why there is no interest in pleasing the users.

    Hi Jonw9.

    Are you on Outlook.com and are you using the "Beta" version? If so report your issues and get out of the Beta.

    I agree, if this Beta comes to market they are going to make a lot of clients unhappy for a lot of reasons.
