25 Feb Block Senders in Gmail

Are you getting a number of emails in your inbox everyday that you would rather not have received? Have you signed up for a newsletter you forgot about and are sick of them appearing in your inbox?

If you’re getting emails you don’t want in your inbox, you can block the sender, unsubscribe from the sender, or report the message depending on the type of email. In general unsubscribing is preferred to blocking the sender especially if you no longer want to receive their emails. The “Block Sender” function is baked right into the Gmail interface and will stop any emails from that specific sender from ever reaching your inbox. Senders who are blocked will not be notified so there is no need to worry about hurt feelings. See how easy it is to use this new tool and try it out yourself!

Let’s take a look.

Open the email from the offending sender. If you have heaps of messages, you can use the search toolbar to search for the person at the top of your screen. From the example below you can see that I have received an an email in my inbox. Personally I only wish to have what i consider my ‘to do list’ to be sent to my inbox therefore any unwanted mail should be placed automatically into my spam folder.

How do i block a sender?

At the top right of the email, click the down arrow. Click Block “[ sender name ]” as shown below. This solves my issue as i will no longer receive an email from this contact in my inbox and the email will be placed straight into my spam folder.

If you blocked someone by mistake, you can unblock them using the same steps.
