Re: BLOCKING AN EMAIL

If this is always from the same sender, you can set up a filter to discard or re-direct the emails to another folder like Trash or Spam. Assuming you are still on the old email format-------------

From your Inbox page, go to Preferences>>>>>>Email>>>>>>>>Email Filters. Click on that, and then follow the prompts to set up a filter for that sender. One of the options is "Discard", which dumps any emails from that sender and you just never see them. There is no way to prevent someone from sending you an email; you can only decide how to deal with it after it's sent to you. Unless you tell them so, there is no way for them to know you are blocking them, since no bounce message is generated by the Comcast mail system.

If you are on the new format, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen, then on Settings. There you will see Filter Rules. Click on that and follow the prompts.
