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.
We need wild card filters TODAY! Hotmail/Outlook is not catching the 300+ junk email I get every day from support@*.de, service@@.tw and similar. This was not an issue before October 2019, but now email is useless!
allow us to block appspot or are you getting paid from them ?
appspot , block that fowl ****
Adding a parent domain should block all sub-domains.
It is beyond me a modern email platform cannot combat the ridiculous amount of spam/phishing emails users are getting everyday. The Outlook team seems to sitting on their hand doing nothing. Offenders are sending emails from .de and .xyz domains using AWS platform. if you check the IP address of the spam/phishing email and it is from AWS, report it to their support at ec2-abuse[at]amazon.com and abuse[at]amazonaws.com.
FORWARD ALL spam/phishing emails to Microsoft at phish[at]office365.microsoft.com and abuse[at]messaging.microsoft.com.
Use Twitter to send your complaints to the folks at Microsoft.
It is Microsoft's job to block all "appspot.com" mails !!!
So not the users of Outlook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi everyone, it seem to work. I don't know how long the option has been available, but my former beta of outlook.com support blocking entire domains now, yeah!
**** , every day im having 10, 20 emails changing domain , for example e.ms.com f.ms.com f.ms.info f.ms.net f.ms.org ... must have a wildcard for yestarday

using wildcards that actually work ( block) would be the single best thing MS could do to make email more user friendly

I am a 69 year old grandmother and every day I get filthy emails from appspot, every single day. Probably 100 in the last 6 months. I want them stopped, but Outlook still blocks my junk mail box with this. At my age I don't need this. PLEASE STOP IT FROM GETTING THROUGH

To Support: Please give us a timeline when a system will be created to protect our accounts and our time.
At this time, it appears the only solution is to change email accounts. I have been searching for a solution to get rid of the appspot emails , but now get maybe 100 per day. I do not have time to search through these for the few valid emails I need. I must have a solution soon.
If rules actually apllied to junk folder there would be no issue. Just set a "delete messages containing appsot in their sender address" and you're done.
I've no idea why they excluded it. Overconfidence about their "superior" junk mail system, which makes life so much easier without hassle *snicker*.
December 19 and counting!

Same problems. I hope you will find a solution asap.

I do have the same problem. when you block it the message is complete gone. It's a mess.
I tried the suggestion of whitelisting appspot then applying rules to delete immediately but i still get appspot spams seeping through into the junk mail folder. The whole thing is just broken beyond belief and that google, a HUGE corporation headquartered in the US has done nothing to stop these spambots is honestly just as bad and is the true source of the problem.
A true means of absolutely blocking ALL appspot email within my hotmail (its a @hotmail address so i will call it hotmail!) would be great as long as its perfect and doesnt still let spam seep through like the current whitelist -> filter rules hoop sequence I'm using at the moment does
Does Gmail allow wildcard blocks?

Why is this address accepted into the system but I cannot block it as it has an incorrect address - 5firmingfruits.2020@.wasi.xyz

ive same as ANONIEM (posted 10-12) with this email example @sutechno.xyz i hope OUTLOOK can fix this soon..i get very angry for getting every day e mail from this sender.
There is a way to apply a rule to Junk-Emails, but it does not really help. You can whitelist a domain, so it does not get into Junk. Instead it will arrive in your Inbox and there you can define a rule to delete the email, based on words in the sender address. However as long as we do not have wildcards for blocking/allowing domains, this is of little help as the appspot.com domain senders change very quickly like: @resend23231.appspot.com @blabla123.appspot.com and so on. So, the rule you define might work for one day until the spambot is configured with another prefix in the domain-extension.
So, Microsoft, please give us the option to block a domain (and subdomains using wildcard), regardless if you classify it as Junk or not. Not allowing rules on Junk also does not help either...
