    As far as i know, that sort of thing has to be done at the email provider level... not client level (being Outlook, in your case). What email provider are you using? I havent ever seen options to block IP in most everyday consumer email providers (i.e. Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc)... but if its a higher level one, like a business class provider, you should be able to.

    You can accomplish the same thing with Hotmail if you set your incoming mail to exclusive.
    That way, you will only get email from addresses that you have added to your address book.
