Hello,

Login to xfinity connect and click on email | preference and email filters on the left side. From there you can learn how to setup filters.

This might also help you out:

Re: blocking email address

if you're using the webmail version , you need to log in to your email and click Preferences and look for the Email option on the left side and select Restrict Incoming Emails ... you will be asked to log in again... and you'll see it from there...

There is another way besides using Preferences.

 

It is foolproof because the fields will already be filled in for you. This method eliminates the multiple clicking needed to set up a filter a different way.

 

While in the Inbox highlight the message you want to block. RIGHT click, choose New Filter.

 

A new page will open. The first field will be the populated with the address of the sender.

The second field will have the subject.

 

Since you want to block and address and not the subject, click the - sign next to the subject field to get rid of it.

 

Choose how to handle the mail. Selecting Discard will delete the mail from the server.  It will not make it to the inbox so you will not receive it. If you want to send the mail to a specific folder, choose which folder to send it to.

 

Give the filter a name, then click OK.

It is there in the full version.

 

 

Using this option will require you to sign in to Customer Central. If the account is a RESTRICTED secondary account the PRIMARY account holder will have to sign in, choose the secondary account, set up restrictions OR let the secondary account do it.

 

Your options are very limited. This uses a whitelist method where you set up addresses that will be able to send you mail. This will require you to go back and enter allowed addresses as you give people your email address. There is no way to restrict certain address but allow all other mail to get through to you.
