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
Thanks for your feedback! Sorry to hear that you are having these problems with blocking senders.
Our junk / spam team is looking into this suggestion, and we should have an update in the next month or two.
Mario Romero commented
espero con ancias esta actualizacion ya que en verdad ya es insoportable el numero de correos que se reciben de appspot.com, por favor o ya hagan algo no quisiera perder este correo por dicha razon
is there an updated yet to block @craigslist-dating.appspot.com? I do not even want them in my spam/junk folder.
Please prevent appspot.com from sending **** into my home

This would be the silver bullet. No more appspot spam, no more dating spam.
Bernita Capstick commented
Faster solution would be great to deal with the 100’s of junk mails arriving daily over the last few weeks
Can we place the wildcard anywhere or only on fixed locations (*.domain.xyz, *.xyz)? The last batch of spam has random domains that and with yelp.com. Examples: BoVMPPrpY@IcwmTIrwyelp.com, pYqbrMHHb@wkHrOTZKyelp.com, GxcYfMucM@sRlCIaRWyelp.com. will it be possible to block them all with a wildcard rule like *yelp.com?
Maybe after right-clicking the suspect email, in either the Inbox or Junk, if we could get & right click "Block", which would give us the further options of "whole address" & "url only" & "edit request". Under "edit request" we could insert a wildcard symbol like "*" after the @ but before the . which appears before the last lot of digits. That way anything after the @ but before the last lot of digits would be treated as blocked.
some of the users i work with have the same issue wildcards would make my life so much easyer rather than having to make rules for all of it
I get same spam to. How do we fix
Can you add a feature that allows me to block email addresses using wildcards (*@*.domain). I am getting WAY TOO MANY spam emails and the blocking feature is ineffective as is. Considering changing email provider to address issue.
Richard Rogers commented
I solved this problem for myself. I just changed to another email provider. This old address is being phased out.
You can tell your junk/spam team not to worry their pretty heads over it.
Good. Tired of running manual filters on Thunderbird to clean up junk mail on hotmail. Also, Hotmail should automatically block appspot as Gmail does.
Given by HONOR but it went into the other pages as new comments are piling up. So here is a repost:
GUYS HERE IS THE SOLUTION I FOUND! RULES ONLY WORK ON INBOX NOT JUNK ! SO MAKE THIS RULES LIKE I DID AND GET RID OFF EVERYTHING.
Add a condition :
Subject or body includes: appspot .appspot.com .appspot
Message body includes: appspot .appspot.com .appspot
sender adress includes : ppspot .appspot.com .appspot
SO WE CAME TO SEND AND ACTION. FIRST WE WILL MOVE JUNK APPSPOT MAILS TO INBOX. SO
Add an action
Move to --------- Inbox
And add another action which is Delete
SO WE ARE DONE YOU WONT GET ANYTHING ANYMORE

Colin, What happenings if we REPORT a phishing junk mail? What is done for us users? I have reported over and over again the same @craigs-dating.appspot.com domain, and still get emails. from them. HOW LONG till something is done?
I agree! Please allow users to block top-level domains. This is accomplished in other email providers by using wildcards. Here is an example of what we are requesting.
Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
The user should be able to block a domain, not just what comes before the @ The junk mailer just changes a letter before the @ to get around being blocked over and over and over again.

After I wrote a comment, before you posted it, a message came up: awaiting moderator approval. Of course you should screen postings for bad language or threats. But if you would fix a simple problem like this one, that thousands of people complain about, representing hundreds of thousands of people who feel like complaining, then you wouldn't need to spend time looking over so many comments.
Muriel Johnson commented
You shouldn't just pretend to think about it for months. You should really block what we block. You are dishonest with us making us think that when we hit block it will really block, when it doesn't. Blocking used to block. You shouldn't have changed that. Just remove this program that doesn't work, and let the previous blocking feature work again.
Yes please have your developers implement the wildcard technique is needed because the spammers just change the prefix but all of this spam is coming from *.appspot.com
Diana Quinones commented
I keep getting mail in my junk folder from this place - @craigslist-dating.appspot.com. I added it to my block list but still get emails. How can I add just a domain name? I have added the above to my block list, but still get emails from that site, which is a ***/***** site and needs to be blocked. Can anyone at OUTLOOK help? with this I must get about 10 per day from this domain which need to be brought down. If it is a bot email, then how do we block it? HELP!
