If you consider the above method is somewhat troublesome, you can add a helper column to extract the domain and then sort it.

1. Open your worksheet and type this formula =MID(B2,FIND("@",B2,1)+1,255) into a blank cell beside your email address, in this example, I will enter this formula into cell C1,(B2 contains the email address that you want to use) see screenshot:


2. Then press Enter key, and select cell B2, then drag the fill handle to the range that you want to apply this formula, and all the email domains have been extracted from the addresses. See screenshot:


3. And then click Data > Sort A to Z or Sort Z to A as you need, in the Sort Warning dialog box, check Expand the selection, and click Sort button to sort the data by email domain with ascending order or descending order.


4. After sorting the data, you can delete the helper column as you like.
