Block all hotmail and outlook email addresses. how?

Want to block annoying bitcoin emails from hotmail/outlook ( using different email). This prankster has same email message but uses different address after each time I block it. Can I block all incominghotmail? Who uses that anymore anyway?

Re: Block all hotmail and outlook email addresses. how?

You could try setting up a filter to block a domain.  On the Inbox page click on the gear icon in the upper right corner, then on Settings>>>>>Filter rules.  Also, what used to be Hotmail is now Outlook.com, and that also includes addresses using @live or @MSN for the domain.  Hotmail addresses still work, but you can't get a new one any more.  If you were to open a new Microsoft email account now it will be Outlook.com.  The others are just grandfathered in.  You should also be marking the emails as Spam to help train the filters whenever they get to your Inbox.
