How to Automatically Block Emails in Gmail So You Never See Them
Block emails from senders in Gmail and delete their messages automatically without worry.
Forwarding that never stops
So you’re in someone’s address book and all of a sudden you’re getting five forwarded messages a day from that person. Unfortunately, none of the requests seem to convince this sender that you should be banned from the mass forwards. Your email silence requests will be completely ignored.
No need to manually delete emails
This means reading jokes, great stories and virus warnings or removing them right away; or you can let the technology do its work.
With a simple filter, Gmail can send all incoming email from your annoyance forwarders straight to your Recycle Bin as soon as it arrives. You can also archive and mark these messages for later review.
Spam button is not for everyone
Of course, when you receive one of those annoying emails, just click spam and send it to the internet world, right? Secure. But it’s not always the best idea. Knob spam should be reserved for reporting genuine spam, which can be classified as bulk mail generally sent for financial gain and from a source that is not easily identifiable.
For the one sender that keeps bugging you, it’s usually best to block them. If you receive spam email, read these tips.
