    I'm looking for some recommendations for a good android email app that blocks spam and junk mail.
    Currently using the Outlook app but I get about 150 junk emails daily.
    Free or paid, doesn't matter.
    Thanks in advance,

    Stuff like spam and junk mail are regulated more that the email service on the server end, not the email app in use. It's a basic server .. client set up. Email messages are managed and maintained within online email servers. Any email app is just a client, it's simply a remote access interface that we interact with. Or in other words, the server does the hard work, the app is just about appearance.
    Whichever email app you opt to use is more about its visual user interface. They all are essentially the same as far as capability, the big difference is how they appear and which features they may or may not include in the user settings/menus. If you want to start managing the crap leaking into your mailbox, spend some time setting up filters and actively start marking spam messages as spam. This isn't a binary matter where you flip a switch and it's one or the other, this is an issue where you have to make a conscious effort to 'train' your Outlook account to automatically start putting junk in the Spam folder. Check to confirm the settings in your Outlook account are set up and start using it.

    I should mention I've gone into outlooks settings on pc and configured the emails to junk, set rules and filters, blocking all I can block, but still a lot make it thru.
    I've had this account since 1996.
    At this point I want to look elsewhere and abandon it

    I should add on to mail.com's server, on the app and p.c. really cleans out the Spam and junk messages, the only spam is non clickable ads in the app, they tend to bubble and each letter it goes by on how it hypes you up, but I never had any troubles of filtering anything in the 17 years I had my email account, and it does add into a cloud for free, but only I think about 20 Gigs.

    What email service are you using? Also, you might consider setting up your own server at home and using postgres or maria to blackhole junk.
