Reasons behind blocking Sender
The main reason behind blocking Sender is that you would want to avoid receiving any more mails from a particular sender as there are scammers on the Internet who could steal your confidential information by sending malware as attachments in e-mails. Unknowingly, you might open the mails and you may finally end up loosing your confidential data. So, to avoid receiving such mails, the sender needs to be blocked.
Blocking a sender
In order to block a sender, initially you need to click on the 'Message Filters' option in the 'Tools' section. In the corresponding window, give the tool a name and select the 'Match the following' option followed by choosing the criteria that you need to match either the name or the e-mail address. In the second box, you need to select the 'Contains' option and again enter either the name or e-mail address of the sender. Next, in the 'Perform action' section, you need to select 'Move message' and set the adjacent box as 'Trash'. On clicking 'Ok', you would successfully block the sender.
In some cases, you may receive mails from a sender even after you have blocked them. The reason could be that the same sender might have different mails under the same name. In such cases, you need to block all the mail ids under the same name and if the problem still persists, you need to make it a point to report to the officials.
