    Can Microsoft allow us to block entire domains?

    I've receive a lot of spam e-mails, and many come from different e-mail addresses on the same domain, for example:
    @420CipDmdu.jobs.estamejor.net
    @0vl0P8oqqz.jobs.estamejor.net
    @937nZYCsAE.jobs.estamejor.net

    If we could add *.jobs.estamejor.net to the block list this would drastically reduce the amount of junk e-mails coming in. Sadly, Microsoft only allow you to add "jobs.estamejor.net", which then would not block any of the three examples above :(

    Block entire domain

    Why can't the block feature actually block entire domains?

    I'm sick of having to block things like drugscompany.server123.io and freeoffers.server123.io and soforth

    Why can't we just be allowed to add *.server123.io to the Block list and block all servers on that domain?

    (Or, better yet, why can't Microsoft start to blacklist servers on their-side so the e-mails never get through?)

    When you use the "Blocked Senders" feature and block a domain why does it not block every child-server (sub-domain) on that domain?

    So if you add spamserver.com you would think that would also block any e-mails sent from server1.spamserver.com and server2.spamserver.com seeing as the parent (top-level) domain is itself in the list

    However this doesn't currently work this way

    Can we either make this work this way, or make it so you can enter a server name in the format *.server.com to block all child domains too?

    Can we have the ability to block e-mails from certain countries?

    Most of the spam I get ends .io (British Indian Ocean Territory) and I've no reason to receive any e-mails from this area.

    I'm sure the original Hotmail did allow you to choose which countries you wanted to allow e-mails from. Shame this was dropped as being able to untick ".io" or at least add "*.io" to the block list would dramatically reduce the amount of SPAM I get
