blocking emails

How can I block someone from sending me emails?

Accepted Solution

Re: blocking emails

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.

 

There is no way to prevent someone from sending you an email.  You can only deal with it once it gets to your account.
