block incoming email

How can I block an email address?  I am not looking to add a filter for that email address.  (I tried... it didn't work.)  I want to block it.  In the past, I was able to do this.  But I've forgotten where this functionality is located.

Re: block incoming email

The only way to block an individual email address/sender is to use a filter.  What did you use for a criterium when you tried?  (Don't post any email addresses).

Re: block incoming email

I have a filter and see that the offending email is not appearing in my Comcast list of emails on the web site.  However, the offending email IS showing up on my computer in Outlook, which is what I usually use for email management.  Outlook is putting them in a spam box.  But, I'm a purist and am hoping there is a means to block them altogether rather than accumulate them in my spam folder.  In the past, as recently as last Summer, I think there was a "preferences" tab and the ability to block certain emails from getting entry into my account.   Is that kind of functionality available now?
