How to Easily Block Unwanted Emails in 5 Simple Steps

Are you tired of receiving unwanted emails cluttering up your inbox? If so, you’re not alone. Unwanted emails can be a nuisance, but luckily there are steps you can take to block them. Here’s how to easily block unwanted emails in five simple steps.

Step 1: Identify the Source of the Unwanted Emails

The first step to blocking unwanted emails is to identify where they are coming from. Most email providers have a “show original” option that will allow you to view the full header of the email, which will show you the source of the email. Once you have identified the source, you can move on to step two.

Step 2: Create a Filter

Once you have identified the source of the unwanted emails, it’s time to create a filter. Most email providers have a “filters” or “rules” option that allows you to create filters for incoming emails. You can create a filter that will automatically delete any emails from the identified source or move them into a separate folder.

Step 3: Mark as Spam


If your email provider does not have an option for creating filters, then your next best option is to mark the unwanted emails as spam. This will alert your email provider that these emails are unwanted and should be blocked from your inbox in the future.

Step 4: Unsubscribe


If possible, try to unsubscribe from any mailing lists or newsletters that are sending you unwanted emails. Most companies will include an unsubscribe link at the bottom of their emails, which will allow you to easily remove yourself from their list without having to contact customer service.

Step 5: Contact Your Email Provider


If all else fails, then it may be necessary to contact your email provider directly and ask them for help blocking unwanted emails. They should be able to provide assistance and may even be able to suggest additional steps that can be taken in order to better protect your inbox from future spam and junk mail.

Blocking unwanted emails doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. By following these five simple steps, you can easily keep your inbox free of clutter and make sure that only important messages make it through.
