The current "Block Sender" feature is woefully inadequate.

 

Honestly, the word 'Pathetic' more accurately describes the current state of affairs.

 

I have an IMAP account for my (SMALL) business.

Part of doing business is "being out there"...getting your name/email address(es) known as widely as possible.

Unfortunately, this means that I get onto many spam lists.

I may get a couple of hundred spam messages a day.

Such is life...it's the cost of doing business.

 

This is an established business, please note: I can't just switch to outlook.com or gmail or...

Or migrate my domain...

 

I need to manage this this via Outlook. On the CLIENT, not on a server: I don't have my own server.

 

There are a couple of products offering Bayesian filtering on the market. Most are so old they are useless. Many simply no longer work. One completely hangs Outlook.

 

I am currently trying "Spam Reader" to see IF it works.

 

Come on Microsoft! Outlook is SUPPOSED to be a mature client but it has no credible 'story' for spam.

It's not like spam is a new thing!
