Blocking email

Blocking email

How do I block a particular sender from sending me email? I don't simply want to push his stuff into the spam folder. I want to block him from sending me email at all. How do I put him on a block list so I never have to bother with deleting his stuff?

Re: Blocking email

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.

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.

Re: Blocking email

Hi arctectk, the step-by-step instructions for email filters provided by Email Expert Latoque is absolutely correct. Just please make sure when you add a new filter rule for the specific email address, you use options "Sender/From" and "Is Exactly" to avoid any email issues in the future.
