How to Block Unwanted Emails !

Do you want to  block emails from your ex wife/husband? Do you want to block those annoying offers and newsletters that reach your inbox? Well here is a way to block all those unwanted and annoying emails that you do not want to see or read! With this trick you can block individual email address or the whole domain from which you do not want the emails to come from. Here are the step-by-step instructions to do this.




For Gmail

3. Under Settings, click on Filters
4. You’ll now see an option “Create a new filter“, click on it
5. Now in the From field enter the email address from which you do not want to receive the emails
For ex. you may enter john@gmail .com in the From field to block all incoming emails from this address. However if you want to block the whole domain then use the following syntax: *@xyz.com. Now all the incoming emails from the domain xyz.com
will be blocked.
6. Click on Next Step, select the action you’d like to take on the blocked emails. You may select the option Delete it so that the blocked email is moved to trash. To unblock the email, all you need to do is just delete the filter that you’ve created.
For Yahoo
1. Login to your account
2. At the top-right corner, click on Options
3. A drop down menu appears, now click on More options

5. Now click on Add
6. In the next screen, give a name to your filter and in the From header field enter the email address that you want to block.
Fox ex. john@gmail.com or if you want to block an entire domain then just enter @xyz.com. Dont enter *@xyz.com. Select the option Move the message to: Trash and click on Save Changes.
For Hotmail
1. Login to your account
2. At the top-right corner, click on Options
3. A drop down menu appears, now click on More options
4. Click on Safe and blocked senders link under Junk e-mail
5. Now click on Blocked senders
6. Type in the email address that you want to block under blocked e-mail address or domain field.

  17. I have blocked unwanted mail in the past, but I gradually began to fear that I was going to miss something important without knowing about it. Now I just use filters and send mail that's typically garbage to a quasi-junk folder. That way it's there if I want it and out of the way otherwise.

  21. The junk e‑mail filter is designed to catch obvious unsolicited commercial e‑mail messages (often called "spam") and move them to a special Junk e‑mail folder. You can increase or decrease the junk e‑mail protection level based on how much junk e‑mail you receive.

  22. Microsoft Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 feature automatic spam protection. To switch it on, select Tools then Options and click on the Junk Email… button and select the level of junk email protection you want.

  23. Blocking senders sounds impressive, mighty and useful, but it rarely is. To combat spam, for example, it is practically useless as spammers change their purported "address" with every message.
    That being said, you can block mail by an annoying person who forwards every joke and virus warning, for example. In Windows Live Hotmail, this is easy, too.

  27. Amazing tip. It does get too annoying at times to be reading unwanted emails from unknown users. Not only does it burn a lot of time to go through all those spam but it is also stressful to waste time on it.

    Very unproductive to say the least.

    Thanks!

  28. Great! I really need this, I've been receiving a lot of messages lately that I haven't subscribed which annoys me.

  29. I keep on getting unwanted emails after somebody has started using my email address to advertise porn. Is there any phone number that I can call to report this? And even better, is what this "porn seller" is doing illegal in the United States? If so can I then call the police?

  30. I have a folder in my email which filters all the unwanted emails that are sent to me. :) And I must say, this feature of email is really cool.

  31. I have the same sort of trouble, except I keep getting unwanted e-mails about 1) Viagra 2) penis enlargement. Well for 1) I don't need Viagra and 2) I have no mental or physical problem about the size of my manhood. I've tired to stop these my self but get nowhere. Most of these type of unwanted e-mails come from Canada, and they tend to use female names as senders. So when I get these type of e-mails now I delete them straight away, although this is time consuming and a pain in the backside.
