Block email

How do I block an email sender? I have tried sending to spam and they still keep coming.

Re: Block email

If you mean garden-variety spam, just keep marking it as spam.  It takes time to "train" the filters as to what you consider to be junk mail.  If you mean you want to block a particular sender--------------------

 

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.
