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.
