Re: blocking email

Assuming you are 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. There is no way to prevent someone from sending you an email; you can only decide how to deal with it after it's sent to you. Unless you tell them so, there is no way for them to know you are blocking them, since no bounce message is generated by the Comcast mail system.


If you are on the new format, click on the gear icon at the upper right-hand corner of the screen, then on Settings.  You will see Filter Rules to do the same thing.

blocking email

Is there a way to block an individual's email address if I no longer want to receive emails from that person?
