How to Block Unwanted Emails

Do you want to block unwanted emailsfrom your ex wife/husband? Do you want to block those annoying offers and newsletters that reach your inbox? Well, here is a way to block all those unwanted and annoying emails that you do not want to see or read!
In this post, I will show you a trick using which you can block individual email address or the whole domain from which you do not want the emails to come from.

Steps to Block Unwanted Emails from Your Account:

Here is a list of separate set of steps that you need to follow for each individual service provider:

For Gmail:

Here is how you can block emails for Gmail:
  1. Log in to your account.
  2. At the top-right corner, click onSettings.
  3. Under Settings, click on Filters.
  4. You’ll now see an option “Create a new filter“, click on it.
  5. Now in the From field, enter the email address from which you do not want to receive the emails.
    For ex. you may enter john@gmail .com in the “From:” field to block all incoming emails from this address. However, if you want to block the whole domain, then use the following syntax: *@xyz.com. Now, all the incoming emails from the domain “xyz.com” will be blocked.
  6. Click on Next Step, select the action you’d like to take on the blocked emails. You may select the option Delete it so that the blocked email is moved to trash. In case if you would like to unblock those emails, all you need to do is just delete the filter that you’ve created.

Fox ex. john@gmail.com or if you want to block an entire domain then just enter @xyz.com. Don’t enter*@xyz.com. Select the option Move the message to: Trash and click on Save Changes.
