Almost every Internet user is familiar with email. Although it is a very useful mode of communication, sometimes it irritates us because of the unwanted messages that we often receive on our email address.

A number of email providers offer a useful tool called “Spam Filter,” which is enabled by default. But, sometimes, this automatic spam filtering system fails to stop the messages from some of the spammers. If you are also one of those people who receive a dozen junk emails daily in their inbox, then here is an easy way of how to block unwanted emails.


  1. Log in to your Gmail account
  2. Go to your inbox and open any email
  3. On the upper-right corner, there is an arrow, click on it, a drop-down menu will quickly appear
  4. After that hit the “Block” option


Now, all the messages from this sender will automatically be forwarded to your “Spam” folder and you will no longer see the annoying messages in your inbox.
