If you’re tired of receiving spam emails in your Gmail inbox, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there are several ways to block spammers in Gmail, and in this article, we’ll be discussing three effective methods. These approaches work regardless of the setup you have, whether it’s a Windows PC, a Mac, or a Chromebook. It also doesn’t matter what browser you’re using, as long as you’re opening up Gmail in the browser.
The first way to block spammers is by marking their message as spam. To do this, simply click on the “report spam” icon at the top of the screen. This icon looks like a stop sign with an exclamation point in it. Once you click on it, any future messages from this person should automatically be categorized as spam.
The second way to block spammers is by clicking on the “more” icon, which looks like three dots. Once you click on this icon, select “block” and enter the email address of the spammer. Whenever this person tries to email you again, their message will be marked as spam automatically.
However, if marking a message as spam isn’t enough, you can set up a filter to get rid of these people. To do this, click on “more” and select “filter messages like this.” You can enter the email address of the spammer or specific keywords from their message. Once you’ve done this, select “create filter” and choose what you want to do with the messages. For instance, you can mark them as read, delete them, and never mark them as important. Any future messages that match these criteria will be automatically deleted.
It’s worth noting that you should be careful when setting up filters, as you don’t want to accidentally delete important messages. If you’re unsure, it’s best to err on the side of caution.
In conclusion, there are several ways to block spammers in Gmail, and with these methods, you can ensure that your inbox remains spam-free.
