makes it easy to block unwanted emails
In this article, you will learn about the settings and filters available to you to help keep your inbox spam-free.
How To Block Users on Gmail
If you'd like to stop receiving emails from a particular sender, you may do so by adding them to your Block
Open any email from the sender, and click the down arrow
shown at the top-right of the email. Then click Block [sender]
All future messages from that sender will be transferred automatically to your "Junk" folder. Note that, if you block someone by accident, you can always unblock them by following the same steps.
How To Report Spam
filters are normally very effective, but occasionally, some of these messages do make their way through to your inbox.
To alert Gmail of any Spam messages received, click the down arrow
at the top-right corner of the email, and then select Report Spam
Any messages believed to be or marked as Spam
will automatically be sent to your "Junk" folder.
