Regex test not working

Is there a specific version of regex for email custom filters.  I set block sender contains word or phrase /[3-9]/g then check the use regex box.  Test against a jumble of letters and numbers eg

5oiu4oijhgjg3 and test finds no result. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

I'm getting lots of emails where the sender address is a random jumble of letters and numbers. Here's an example The McAfee spam filter doesn't recognise them as spam (don't know why) so I was looking to block the email if there are one or more numbers in the sender's address.

Or should the question be: why isn't anti-spam blocking these emails?
