Like all mailboxes, Gmail offers preventative spam blocking. If a sender has slipped through the filter, you have an easy recourse: automatic blocking of all messages from the same sender.

Be careful, this manipulation is to be done wisely: once blocked, all future messages from the sender will disappear, diverted from your mailbox to be redirected to the spam folder.

Block a sender on Gmail

  1. Click on a message of the sender to be blocked.


  2. Click on the More button (the 3 small dots vertically).

  3. Click on Block this sender.

  4. Click on Block to confirm.

If you want to unblock a sender, you can easily reverse this manipulation. Just click on the More > Unblock User button.
