Get your inbox zen back with our guide to blocking unwanted and spam emails
Unwanted emails shouldn't get in the way of a clean inbox, but sometimes spam filters go awry and messages you definitely don't want to see start appearing in your inbox. Here we explain how to stop these messages from appearing next to stuff you actually want to read, either by blocking them or setting up simple rules. We've covered this for Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo and iCloud. Scroll down to find the relevant tutorial.
To block emails on the Gmail website, open the email you want to block and click on the down-arrow next to the Reply button on the top-right of the email. Click 'Block [name]' and then in the window that pops up, click Block. Bear in mind that these emails will be filed under Spam so you'll still be able to see them if you check your Spam folder regularly.
If you want to to automatically delete emails from a particular sender you can do this. Open the email and click on the down-arrow next to the Reply button on the top-right of the email and select 'Filter messages like this'. In the box that pops up, click 'Create filter with this search' on the bottom-right, then select 'Skip the inbox (Archive it)'. The email will still exist but you won't be able to find it easily. Alternatively, select 'Delete it', and the email will be moved to your Deleted Items folder and will be permanently deleted after 30 days.
