Don’t want to get those annoying product reviews from someone or company that you once liked? There is a simple solution for this: block them.
And you can get around this by sending them to your spam folder. Unfortunately, this does not always help. An email you don’t want to see can still arrive.
The good news is there is another way. And it’s very simple.
In this post, we will learn how to easily block someone in Gmail. With this approach, you can say goodbye to unwanted emails!
First of all, you need to log into your Gmail account. Make sure you’re signed in to the account where the unwanted sender continues to send you messages.
Otherwise, you won’t find his name in your inbox. And you cannot block it.
First go to Gmail and enter your email (or phone) in the box. And click “Next” to continue.
Then enter your password in the field. And click “Next” again to continue.
How to ban
There are many reasons to block someone. One of the main ones is their ruthless way of flooding your inbox. Even if their posts contain useful information, this does not mean that you want to read them.
Here’s what to do to fix this issue:
Option 1: Use the blocking feature
Open an email from the sender you want to block and click on the three dots icon at the far end.
Then a dropdown menu will open. From the list of options, select Block “[sender’s name]”.
Then a pop-up window will appear. Here, click “Block” to confirm.
You will then receive a confirmation message. It will inform you that you have blocked a specific email address.
You can just ignore it. You can also click Unblock Sender.
Option 2. Use a filter
