Junk e-mail: block e-mail addresses using wildcards (eg *@*.can
Junk e-mail: why can't you allow the user to block e-mails using a wildcard and only part of the e-mail address? I receive, EVERY DAY, emails from pharmacy<something>.can and I want to block *@*.can instead of wasting my time to block every single instance, every single day

Need to introduce blocking emails by wildcard for domains. i keep getting junk/spam by something @*.*.*.olav.xyz and there is no way to stop these emails from coming through. Would really like to block domains using wildcard after the @ sign, because they regenerate numbers after the @ sign so no email is from the same email, something like @338474.xv.ji-olav.xyz and @338473.xk.ji-olav.xyz
Agree with all the appspot complaints. Just started a month ago. If Rules could just be applied against the Junk folder to allow autodelete, it would solve it.
One possibly helpful hint: If you search for appspot in your junk folder, then Delete all, at least it clears the recent ones so you can review your other junk mail.

NEED TO BLOCK PREFIXES - ADDRESSES, LOTS OF ****** MESSAGES INDESIRABLE
PLEASE let us block top level domains, such as .email or .xyz as well as use wildcard such as newsletter@* I get DOZENS of emails a day from newsletter@* and *.email. In the past month or two we've been getting inundated with garbage email like never before. FIX IT!
so many people including myself suffering the blight of these <randomrubbish>.appspot.com addresses makes me wonder if microsoft didnt flog off our email addresses to a spam generator for some quick USD and as part of the agreement refuses to allow a means to filter or shut down junk from any appspot related entity
20 or more spam per day suddenly out of now where and all from the same appspot.com source. How much more of an obvious shady dealing could there be?
I have tried every suggestion from comments, still not working
The issue is that Microsoft does not apply those rules to junks, which is why spammers gets their ways through, just give up, nothing really works, every solution/suggestion to apply rules has been use,eww so far, I’m switching to Gmail now and leaving outlook forever
Add the ability to block ALL email address by 1st part of e-mail, not just URL. For example: Newsletter@* or From@* would eliminate 90% of the junk email I am still getting
Yes, this very much needs to be a thing. About ready to dump this e-mail account because of all the stuff coming in. Could fix some of it by using a wildcard. appspot **** needs to go!

Yes! Do you know how much junk I get? I never subscribed to any newsletter@*.xyz or icu.
The solution that Art offered doesn’t not work, I have tried every possible rule and way to block all the appspot spams, but nothing works at all, at this point, we are likely receding 100000 spams a year and Microsoft is not doing anything, I’m considering leaving this service completely and switch to gmail
Blocked email selected not being blocked
I think I found a simple solution, click on settings "looks like a gear" at the bottom click on "View All Outlook Settings" click on "Mail" then click on "Rules", under click on "+ Add new rule" under "Name your rule add this text "For all messages from *" "Under Add A condition" Select "Sender address includes" add this word and nothing else no . no .com nothing but this word "appspot" and under "Add a action" select "Delete" then finally click on "Save"
This! I'm getting 40+ emails everday from ***.icu, and now my Blocked list is too full to block anymore. So I can't block, and I can't get it to filter via the wildcard - PLEASE can you fix this??

For the last couple of months I have tried to fix a problem with being inundated with JUNK emails.
There should be a way of stopping the following: They are all using newsletter@(WILDCARD).icu how do I stop these annoying emails or automatically delete them?
I have sent the code you provided to the technician that was handling this but I haven't heard anything back in weeks.
What does it take to correct an oblivious error in your system that allows all these spam/junk emails to get through?
NO HELP FROM MICROSOFT.

I agree 100% with your suggestion. I don't understand why I can't block the word VIAGRA or CIALIS in the sender's name.

I sent a report about "appspot" spams to Microsoft customer support in Japan through Email, and here's an answer.
Thank you for reporting.
This is XXXXX from Outlook.com support.
Regarding the report you sent,
Microsoft’s email platform provides "SmartScreen" which has anti-spam and anti-phishing feature, and it is applied for email filtering.
Filtering targets, (such as "appspot.com") cannot be added or deleted artificially by individual requests.
Regarding Microsoft ’s anti-spam efforts,
please refer to the item of [Anti-spam] on the following page.
Also, there is currently no additional rule function using wildcards,
We will report this issue in-house and work to improve the service in the future.
Afterwards, "appspot" spams are still coming to my "Junk Mai"l folder...
I'm having the same dilemma everyday. Tried all suggested resolutions but unfortunately, none of them completely works. I reckon these Microsoft people are deaf, brainless and useless...
