    Are you looking to loop through a range of cells? In a column? In a row? When deleting the cells, do you want the entire row deleted? Just the cell? If just the cell, do you want surrounding cells to shift up or to the left?

    =right(<cell>,4)="@com" evaluates to TRUE where the last four characters of the cell referred to are @com. Copy this in an adjacent column, apply data -> filter -> autofilter, filter the test columns for true and delete your cells or delete their contents as needed.

    I meant deleting the whole row, if the cell on a specific column ends with something , for example "@.com"
