How to block emails in Gmail

If you’re getting messages you’d rather not receive, it’s pretty easy to block email senders in Gmail. This works for both emails from private addresses and from commercial mailing lists, so feel free to block liberally — though with the latter it’s worth trying the ‘unsubscribe’ route first.

If all else fails, though, here’s how to block emails in Gmail.

First off, you need to open Gmail. I’m doing this on PC, but the process is very similar on the iOS and Android apps.

 2. Find an offending email 

Next, you need to find an email from the person/company you want to block. For the purposes of this tutorial, I’ve sent myself a mean email from another account, and will now proceed to block this imaginary troll (rather than interact via Gmail’s useful suggested replies).

Next to the time and date and the top of the email, there are three vertical dots that Google calls ‘more’. Press this to open up additional options.

4. Block the sender 

The sixth option in the drop-down menu that appears is to “Block ‘Sender Name’”. Click this.

 5. Confirm the block 

A warning will pop up informing you that all future emails from the sender will be marked as spam messages. Press “Block” to confirm or “Cancel” if you have a change of heart.
