Blocking emails

Lately I've been getting really annoying junk mail from various senders using the domain name "junkmailfilter.com". Is there any way to block these or do I just have to keep moving them to spam?

Accepted Solution

Re: Blocking emails

Yes, keep marking them as spam when they get to the Inbox.  But if the sending domain is always consistent you could try setting up a filter to block it----------

 

Assuming you are still in 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 in 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. In the new format there are basically two ways you can block someone; first, you can just pick "Discard" as the action same as with the old format.

Re: Blocking emails

Thank you, Latoque. I've just created the new rule with the instruction to discard. Hope I don't get any more of those emails now!
