How to Block Emails/Someone on Gmail

How to Block Emails/Someone on Gmail

7.0/7 rating 1 vote

Are you tired of receiving tens of hundreds of emails daily which keeps your inbox flooded from different spams or unwanted companies? Are you tired of deleting these Emails every morning? If you are receiving from a company, you can simply unsubscribe from their Email service, however, if you are annoyed by Emails from a particular person or company, you can block that particular person. Recently, Gmail provides a great way to block a particular person right in the Email client. Apart from blocking a person, you can also send Emails directly into the trash right on Android or iPhone. On the other hand, Gmail web client also provides an option to create different filters which will help you arrange the Emails in the easier way. You can create a Filter for certain Emails and all that type of Emails will be either archived or permanently deleted without showing up in your Inbox.

 So, you can basically block an Email address on the Web service from any computer or Gmail application on the iPhone. However, there is no way present in the iPhone to block an Email address in the Gmail application for iOS. Filters and blocked list can only be accessed on the computer, but once they are created, they can be used on any device. Lastly, you can directly trash the Emails on Android or iOS application.

Note: We have tried blocking an Email address using Gmail [Version: 4.4.0] on iPhone but it did not work out.
