What happened to blocking domains automatically
There was a great feature that let you choose to block the entire domain when you chose to block an email. This was great because I used to have to go through the blocked senders list one by one adding the bad domains. I thought it should have been expanded so that if you chose to block a domain, it automatically deleted all emails from that domain that was in your mailbox.
Instead of expanding the functionality, it looks like it has been removed. Bring back the option to flag email as Junk, block it, choose to block the domain, and then delete all emails from that domain. it would make cleaning up your mailbox so much easier and faster.
If it would do any good to forward spam emails to the teams that handle spam, I would. However it seems to be like falling into a bottomless pit. I am sure the abuse and report spam teams after awhile just start deleting the spam emails without reading. Just recently I tried forwarding an email to both of the above. I received a postmaster rejection notice. Guess what the reason that was given. It said it was rejected by their server because, wait for it. It contained spam. I don't know about anyone else but wouldn't you think that would be a reason for them to look at it. The only reason it was sent was it appeared to contain spam. Tried again a week later and it still won't take it. Something is screwy if Outlook cannot or will not address concerns in a timely manner.

Very important. I just received an email in my inbox from email@example.com but actually from firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to block stt-cuisine.com, not Paypal.com. How can I do this? I receive several emails a day telling me "We're concerned that someone is using your PayPal account without your knowledge. Please log in to your PayPal account to confirm your identity and review your recent activity." I know to not click on the link and login but this is still very bad.

I wish I could redirect all the spam I get in my inbox to the person(s) at Microsoft that should be rooting this junk mail out.
My guess it coz it never worked. I had spam in my inbox from emails with emojis, and even after blocking the domain, they would go into my inbox. SPAM detection is absolute disgrace in outlook.
I agree, this was a great feature that appeared and was then suddenly removed, why?
