Re: block an email from just one person

If you're using webmail (i.e., logging in to comcast.net and clicking the Mail icon), you can't.

With any real email client, it's simple.  In Outlook Express, for example, just select a message from the person you want to block, then choose Message, Block Sender.

Re: block an email from just one person

With Outlook Express, you can go one step further than blocking the sender, which will send any mail directly to the Deleted mail folder. You can create a rule to actually delete the mail from the server. The mail will never be downloaded to OE. I'd rather wait to give you instructions on setting up a rule when you reply with how you access mail.
