email@example.com only allows bill to be bypassed in the spam filter
*@*.microsoft.com allows machine names of microsoft - for instance if you got an
email from firstname.lastname@example.org . It is always a good idea if you are
allowing a whole domain to bypass the spam filter - to add the rule both ways.

What i do is in Outlook, i created a rule - which will move any message with
SPAM in the subject line into the deleted folder. Then i check that folder a few
times a day before emptying it. 99 percent of the messages in the deleted folder
