Unhappy How can I block a top-level domain?

I am getting an increasing number of spam mails all from domains with the pattern ...@<some_garbage>.pw, e.g. some.name@8wne5.pw
The garbage between the '@' the '.pw' varies from mail to mail, so these are obviously somehow generated.

Since I don't know anyone in Palau (apparently some island in the south sea) and I don't expect any relevant email from there I would like to define me a rule to move all emails from that top-level domain '.pw' directly to my junk folder and mark it as read.

But - going through its rule-wizard - Outlook apparently doesn't support such matching. My best guess was to check the condition "with specific words in the senders address" - the specific word being ".pw" - but that rule doesn't match. "*.pw" didn't match, either. I guess this function is meant to match entire words only, not word-fragments or wildcards or regular expressions.



So, how can I phrase a rule that matches all senders whose email address ends in ".pw"?

Right - that question was never responded to, let alone answered or solved.

Have you tried the options available via the Junk tab within Outlook where you can navigate through the options and to the Blocked Top-Level Domain list via the International tab?

This is what I have done:
On the int. tab. I selected some of the 2 letter domains. We shall see....


But I also have a @xxx.GDN, no option for that, so I blocked Grenada (GD) and Guinea (GN).


That leaves me with @yyyy.Live, @xxx.today, .club, .xyz
