Cause
This behavior is by design in Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and in Outlook 2013. The command to block the sender's domain was not added to the shortcut menu in order to prevent users from accidentally clicking it. By clicking such a command, a user might have unintentionally blocked everyone who sends an email message from that specific domain. This includes everyone who uses a common carrier or ISP, such as @example.com.
Workaround
To work around this behavior, manually add the sender's domain to the Blocked Senders list. To do this, follow these steps.
  1. Right-click the email message that was sent from a domain that you want to block, point to Junk E-mail, and then click Junk E-mail Options.
  2. Click the Blocked Senders tab.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Type the domain that you want to block, such as @example.com.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click OK to close the Junk E-mail Options dialog box.
