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”
I have the same problem. Blocking doesn't prevent an email with the same domain. Why can't Microsoft sort this???
These xxxxx are sending emails with @cYA.departmentusa.club> domain and then the unsubscribe button doesn't even work, it will fail delivery.
I get around 5-10 spam emails from them all from the same domain.
I know if I delete my email account all of these problems will be solved. But I want to be able to block the domain without having to put up with this any more.
Otherwise I will give up with Outlook and use another email provider instead!(Edited by admin)
I get up to 34 emails a day....yes a day!!! from departmentusa.club. the above has not helped at all. I block them every time...next day I seem to receive more!! Really fed up of this now

Need to be able to block bulk emails at the domain level, not on individual emails that you then have to edit to remove 'garbage' strings the spammers are using to bypass your filters. It would also help MS identify compromised domains et al.

please let block just like this *@*.ICU i got daily ton of spam from .ICU.
This support is obviously worthless as everyone is complaining about the exact same thing and getting ZERO help from Microsoft Outlook. This is pretty absurd.
Even though you haven't answered the question asked, your fixed provided DOES NOT WORK. I get HUNDREDS of messages a day from seeingeye.org and no matter how I try to block the domain - they still show up. Maybe you should just give us a website where we can send you the problem children, and let YOU deal with it.

"Block senders and domains" is not working. Senders are blocked, but domain isn't. The sender just changes his name, but uses the same domain over and over again.

I NEVER receive bona fide e-mails from certain TLDs, such as .ru or .icu. It is possible to set blocking from certain domains, like name.ru or name.icu, but there should be an option to block entire TLDs, such as *.ru or *.icu.
Since Microsoft/outlook junk filtering process is no where near googles/gmail, you have to check your junk mail folder everyday for non-junk mail email, so in essence the junk email folder becomes an extension of your inbox. Because of this you need to allow users to block top-level domains (tld) that are invasive and pervasive junk mail offenders that use a different email address for every email they send, but use the same tld, Or you need to allow users' rules to apply to both the inbox folder as well as the jul email folder as you can set a rule to auto delete emails that "contain" words (i.e. tld). For example currently receive multiple junk emails a day! from ***@***.departmentusa.club but you do not allow me any way to be able to block the tld "departmentusa.club"
It's not the answer, we want to block top level domains, like .ru, .icu and thousands more. Is this difficult to understand?

This doesn't work. I have blocked RU but still get LOTS of .ru email.
The fact that I can't block top level domains is a show stopper. I am inundated with mail from domains I know will always be junk. Outlook.com needs something like spam Apache Spam Assassin to enable the use of wildcards. I've just has enough of continual spam and no way to effectively block it.
It's goodbye to Outlook.com

This is not what he asked for. He wants to block everything from a TOP level domain. Me too
For instance if you get tons from email@example.com they want to block everything from ".us". The TOP LEVEL DOMAIN.
I would like a way to block specific top level domains. For example, if I set up a rule to block the TLD 'xyz' then anything coming from any email address ending in .xyz gets filtered.
fedex, so - here we go again - topdomain - how do microsoft relate to block TOPDOMAIN?, theres an issue to resolve for microsoft. always a securityrisk - even if there is in a spamfolder - to by mistake click on it.
please block all junk emails ending with ".xyz" from sending to my hotmail. // i bet there're millions of hotmail/outlook users requesting the same thing from you for a long time already.
For the freaking millionth time, PLEASE give us the Advanced Users, the option to block spammers and scammers using regx or pattern matching, such as *.xyz to block an entire domain or @domain.* or @*.* and if the latter blocks all emails, so be it, most of us can figure out that we shot ourselves in the foot!

I'd love to block .host, .info, .ru etc as spammers have a lovely way getting around the second leve as "Olivia is Annoyed" eloquently put.
P.S. Have you done it yet?

Dear outlook admin,
you totally didn't address the concern in this question at all.
I want to be able to block all emails coming from a .club .xyz or .ru email address. Spambots commonly change from: 534654ghchaygnv234.xyz to 4ag86hliaue7onmvboa.xyz for the same spam message.
Allow me to block them all, please.
