Sweeping does not always work. For the past few days I've kept getting 'Cams!' , Viagra, Rolex and others in my junk box and cannot sweep these forever.
It would be great if there was a filtering block box for ' mail containing the word(s)....' but I suppose that would be Utopia.
i have tried to block ads but within 3 days they are back the filter is useless i have more now than before. i get maybe 40 per day and microsoft say hooray your inbox is empty when i clear them all the filter does nothing i have 600 + in my block but they are back within 3 days
