Allow Block Senders to block Top Level Domains
I am pretty sure I will NEVER need to get email from the top level domains .ru or .xyz. These messages are ALWAYS spam. just let us block these top level domains.
Thanks for trying the Outlook.com beta! We’re glad to inform that you can now block top-level domains in Outlook.
1) Settings (gear icon in top right)
2) Click “View full settings”
3) Click “Junk email”
4) Scroll to “Blocked domains” section
5) Type in a domain name you want to block (For example, if I want to block all emails from @blockeddomain.com, enter “blockeddomain.com”
6) Click “Add”
Is there a way to block everything coming from datapound.club?
please allow wildcard to block something simple like *.xyz

AGAIN PLEASE STOP .XYZ..... VIAGRA .DE .CLUB
It would be nice if the drop down did more to block unwanted emails at the source instead of just the one email. An example is it just blocks firstname.lastname@example.org not the offending domain. Come on Outlook you can do better than this.
Cannot globally block email with ' .xyz ' suffix. 95% of my spam come from ' .xyz. ' Example " email@example.com "
Its actually built in to outlook.com webmail and it doesnt work.
Rules, "Senders address includes" .xyz, then move to trash.
Anyone know what other free email client can actually block TLD's?
This doesn't work. I need to block all @*.info domains
99.44% of the junk email I receive originates from either .xyz or .ru address, and OUTLOOK DOES NOT ALLOW me to block those upper level domain names Would that block revenue for click counts MICROSOFT?
Voting is blocked for this. Top level domains .ru and .xyz STILL CANNOT BE BLOCKED!

I am receiving over 500 pieces of junk and phishing emails and there is no way in the new Outlook to block the domain. Previous versions allowed the user to block domains in the following manner *.domain name. Who screwed up this feature.

Microsoft apparently doesn't want you to use Outlook.Com for mail. That is the only reason I can see for their not adding this basic and easily developed feature.
My suggestion, and apparently MS's based on their lack of action on this - switch to another provider.

NEED the ability to block at a TLD - example *.xyz and *.de for starters (90% of the ridiculous amount of SPAM I'm getting every day these days). I don't even want these to go into my junk folder - I just want them BLOCKED PERIOD.

Can I block ALL incoming emails with an .xyz domain?

What about deleting all the spam junk from TLD .xyz ? the domain keeps changing with each junk email, but the TLD is always .xyz.

I agree with all the comments. Why not add blocking a top level domain. Very straightforward, but maybe Microsoft just doesn't care....
I'm getting an unbelievable amount of spam from a .de spam bot address. Please allow us to block top level domains. I will never need to receive emails from Germany, and if I do I will unblock it temporarily.
Spammers just create a new email address with the same domain name to get past the Block filters. We should be able to block an entire domain from sending us spam. Don't you guys look at the complete email address the spam is coming from? It's just a bunch of random characters.
Large amounts of phishing emails sent daily. Is there not a means to block erroneous domains?
How do I block a domain on junk mail?
