So I'm trying to configure an outbound Spam filter Policy to prevent a user from always getting thrown in the Restricted Users bin. The Policy I created was very standard and I want it to apply to the user in the screenshot
However once it is created it looks as if the Custom outbound Spam policy only applies to users who are recipients of the sending user in the tenant. (internal to internal communication within the tenant)
I want this policy to apply to all outbound messages sent from TU@mictestacc123.onmicrosoft.com (even users on other domain) not just ones sent to other users within the tenant. Is this possible?

The way your policy is set, my understanding is that it will do what you want it to do. Is this not what you are experiencing?
Also, does the default outbound spam policy in the Security and Compliance Center not meet your needs anyway?

@PeterRisingthank you kindly for your response
The default outbound spam policy works fine, I was trying to configure one of these for a specific user who sent a lot of mail that was getting flagged as SPAM (that it the nature of there job) and kept getting thrown in the restricted users bin
I'm just surprised in the second screenshot where it says
If this message is received from: TU@mictestacc123.onmicrosoft.com (it is highlighted)
I thought it was say,
if this message is sent from: TU@mictestacc123.onmicrosoft.com
Since it is an outbound Spam Policy and I want it to apply to outgoing messages
It almost makes me think that the policy is only for internal to internal communication
The article makes it sounds like it is for outbound messages, IDK am i missing something?

@foxx109 Any idea why a "default" outbound spam filter would not via viewable via the GUI? We have a ticket open with Microsoft support but they are stumped. How to we bring this back. Right now we are getting NDRs for all outbound external forwarding.

@ChristianBergstrom Good shout on PowerShell.
@Michael Platt Could not see the screenshot I'm afraid. Can you try uploading again please?
Also, have you tried logging in with a different Global Admin? Sounds nuts I know, but I've seen this happen where one GA can see something that another randomly cannot. Try a private browser maybe too.
