    Some email users have been reporting the problem of receiving more, sometimes floods, of spam from the new TLD's

    Email service operators should be aware and make sure they can handle new TLD's such as .ninja and .work correctly in their content filtering systems.

    For example, the following update was required for email servers that run SpamAssassin:

    SpamAssassin - Spam from .CRICKET .NINJA .XYZ .CLICK | Email Questions

    If your email provider isn't getting the job done, these are the steps to block these domains using the Junk Email options in Microsoft Outlook.

    First, go to the Junk menu and select Junk E-Mail Options:

    Then go to the Blocked Senders tab and use the Add button to filter more domains as junk such as .cricket .ninja .work .click and .xyz

    Every domain should be it's own entry. Do not add multiple domains on the same line. Do not put a * in front of junk domain names.
