By blacklisting the addresses, you can make sure you don’t see the emails from those senders in your inbox. Read on and we’ll explain how to do it.

You can block a naughty email address in Gmail. It’s never nice to have a bunch of useless messages in your inbox.

The worst thing is that important mail gets drowned in the mass, with the risk that some of it will get away.

Most messaging services are configured to separate the main messages from those that are promotional or come from social networks.

Unwanted messages are automatically filtered and quarantined in the so-called spam box.

How to block an address in Gmail?

Sometimes messages can be unwanted, but they come from a normal direction. In which case you will receive these messages in your inbox.

The only way to avoid this is to block the email address in question. On the other hand, if you do not want to receive any more advertising messages in the promotion section, the easiest way would be to unsubscribe.

However, many sites have the vicious delicacy of omitting the unsubscribe link. Or, if it exists, it’s there for decorative purposes only.

Blocking an address in Gmail is very simple.

Both on the Android smartphone and on the PC:

  • Open an email from the spammer you want to block.
  • Press/click the three vertical points to the right of the sender’s name line.
  • Press/Click “Block [contact name]” on the pop-up menu that opens.

How can I unlock an address?

  1. Click the gear on the right side of the Gmail interface
  2. Then click on Settings.
  3. On the Filters and Addresses Locked tab, select the addresses to be restored
  4. Now click on Unlock the selected addresses.

There, now you know how to block or unblock email addresses in your Gmail account.
