Stop Unsolicited Messages: A Comprehensive Guide on How to Block Unwanted Emails

Are you tired of receiving countless spam emails in your inbox every day? Are you worried about clicking on a malicious link or downloading a virus? You’re not alone. Millions of people worldwide receive unsolicited messages daily, and the good news is that there are ways to block them. In this article, we’ll discuss how to block unwanted emails and keep your inbox clean.

Identify the Source

Before we look at how to block unwanted emails, it’s important to identify the source. Spam emails can come from various sources such as newsletters, social media, online shopping sites, and even legitimate companies. Once you identify the source of the spam emails, it’s easier to block them.

Use Filters

Most email services have filters that help you automatically sort and delete unwanted emails. For example, Gmail has a feature that allows you to create rules for incoming messages. You can use this feature to send specific types of spam emails directly to your trash folder or mark them as read.

Another way to use filters is by creating a separate folder for spam emails. This way, all unsolicited messages will be directed into this folder instead of cluttering up your main inbox.

Unsubscribe from Mailing Lists

Sometimes we receive unwanted emails because we subscribed to a mailing list without realizing it. To stop receiving these types of messages, look for an unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email and click on it. Usually, this will remove you from their mailing list and prevent future messages from arriving in your inbox.

Party Apps

If filters and unsubscribing don’t work or if you’re still receiving too many unsolicited messages in your inbox, consider using third-party apps designed specifically for blocking spam emails.

For instance, SpamSieve is an app available for Mac users that filters unwanted emails based on specific criteria. Similarly, MailWasher is a popular spam blocker for Windows users that allows you to preview emails before downloading them, so you can delete spam messages without opening them.


In conclusion, receiving unsolicited emails can be frustrating and even dangerous. By using the tips outlined in this article, you’ll be able to identify the source of the spam emails and use filters, unsubscribe from mailing lists and consider using third-party apps to block unwanted emails. Keep your inbox clean and safe by taking action against spam messages today.
