I'm getting junk emails that hide their TLD - though the rest of the domain exists e.g <gsnwpodt@wa&#65279>. Double-clicking on the email address doesn't provide any addional info. When I try to block the specific domain - the system says "The email address or domain name you entered is not valid....it needs a .com, or .org, etc." How do I set Outlook up to consider anything without apparent TLD as junk and block?
 
I'm surprised the mail server accepts mail from invalid addresses. You won't be able to block the address, but if the Unicode character code is always the same you can create a rule to delete messages with that in the sender's address.

Check the message header for character encoding, you might be able to block it that way. This is from spam:
Content-Type: text/html; charset="Windows-1251"
Block encoding in Junk mail options, international. Don't block western European (iso) and ascii -anything else can be blocked unless you get messages from people who would use those languages or character sets.
