Need to block a suffix - not changing domain name
Won't let me block .icu suffix. Lots of different prefixes - I can't block them all.
Need to be able to block anything from .icu to avoid large levels of spam.

I have had a hotmail address for well over twenty years. The changes over those years have almost all been to the disadvantage of the user. As a UK user, I regret the US bias in all that I see, I imagine that worldwide users far outnumber those in the US.
The revenue that Microsoft must enjoy from its various products should surely outstrip any advertising revenue and yet we have intrusive ads appearing in increasing numbers. I am tempted to wonder whether there could be revenue from other sources that inhibit the enthusiasm to provide a satisfactory end user service - like keeping spam emails to an acceptable (ie nil) level.

Make it easier to block domains that are sending fake spam emails. instead of asking to block sender give a choice to block the domain.
Example firstname.lastname@example.org block domain abgenes.pw

Getting a lot of Junk mail from VSEFEW.computer.amazonaws.com where the first set of characters is a new random character set each time. Need a way to block any e-mails coming from an address in this format, or the ability to use a regular expression to define a block.
All the block list does is send to our Junk mail. If that. We cannot Block ANYTHING form going into our JUNK FOLDER despite the constant requests.
We cannot block anything from going into our Junk email. I have been asking to block sub domains (suffix), I have also heard them called wildcards? Not sure of the correct name but reference the same.
Subjects or key words in subjects. (Those same emails that come from multiple sources.)
Now I am getting what I think to be spoofed emails I cannot read the return address or report without opening the email. Why are these even going through to my junk folder?
If it goes to Junk is known Junk, Phishing, Spoofing, **** why can't they block it? When we click on Block we are giving them our permission to do just that. Block does not mean a thing!
I hear back that they are doing something, should get better, might see help. Ruined the integrity blah blah blah. Outlook /Microsoft has done NOTHING. They rely on their inept filtering system to figure out what we have been telling them we want blocked. I am tired of the brush off, and the lies I have been getting. Just look at the amount of feedback concerning Spam/Junk email. It is up in the thousands.
We get to vote on it. Yay that is seriously an insult!
We hear crickets or lies from Microsoft/Outlook.

exactly the same need: why it is not simply possible to create a rule that would block any message whose sender's address contains a specific text (not only full domain name). In the initial example any message that would be sent by an email address containing '.icu' wiped be blocked. PLEASE !!!!!!!!!
See case 1483209294 on blocking entirely site extension needed. I never want anything from .icu, .us, .site. .xyz or .club but there is no way to block a specific extension/site entirely and the messages from these extensions are always from a constantly changing code...only the ending (.icu as example) is constant.

Receiving 30-50 emails per day from newsletter@*.icu. Hotmail filters are USELESS. WE *NEED* better rules that support wildcards, regex, etc. to be able to better block these emails.
Lots of spam from newsletter@____.icu (name in blank varies). Outlook should block this.

It is obvious from observing the repeated requests for this feature that Microsoft is deaf to the needs of their community. When they do respond to a request for blocking Top Level Domains, the response is irrelevant to the request.
Microsoft's spam capabilities are a farcical miscarriage of design. Microsoft makes some of the best software in the world in multiple arenas - this is not one of them!

your spam filters are horrible. Why won't you allow people to do more filtering, like only allow US domains?
Currently I can only block particular domain where email is from @companyX.y.com etc. But if email comes from @somethingnew.companyX.y.com then again I have to add 'somethingnew.companyX.y.com' to block list.
Instead, it should be allowed to create block or safe senders rule like '*.companyX.y.com' where '*' indicates match with anything. Kind of a regular expression.
Please consider forwarding this to the concerned technical team and they'll understand what I'm talking about.
Alternatively if you already know the solution, please let me know.
Receiving hundred or more ICU.com emails every day and increasing each day! Blocking does not work! Please give us a solution for us to get rid of this terrible ICU.com mail!
Ridiculous! Microsoft should just block all domains from .icu. All they do apparently is sell obscure domains to spammers.
Ditto. I receive up to 30 messages EVERY day from .icu. We need to be able to block the entire tld.
Junk folder HELP needed by this 20-year user. In the past two months "newsletter@*****.icu" floods my account. Please provide a way to STOP it! Thanks!!

Have same problems with dozen of "advertising" emails that all end in .icu Would really like to block anything having an .icu suffix.
For the love of god, let us block by root domain. Please block icu.com
