Gmail

I consider myself to be pretty tech saavy when it comes to most computer programs….but I am having an issue with Gmail and hope that somebody reading this can assist me.  For my email account I cannot figure out how to block somebody!  Currently I use the ‘create filter’ option which sends messages from unwanted recipients straight to my trash folder yet I don’t want to see them at all.  When I periodically dump my trash I see said person’s name and the first 3-5 lines of their message and I want them blocked entirely.  Help?

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

  1. Gmail won’t allow you to completely block an address. FIltering it and sending directly into the trash is as good as it gets. Sowwy. 😦

  2. That just doesn’t seem right….oh well. The upside is that the trash will automatically delete itself every 30 days so I don’t have to worry about manually deleting it because it’s ‘too full.’ I’ll just stay out of the trash and it’s as good as blocking!
