How to Block Unwanted Gmail Emails That Won't Unsubscribe
By C. Taylor
Bulk emails typically contain an Unsubscribe option for stopping recurring messages. However, employing this option doesn't always work, and you continue to receive these emails. Your best defense against such persistent emails is using Gmail's Report Spam button to quickly mark the offending emails as spam. If that seems extreme, you can also create a filter to automatically delete the emails. Both options block the emails from arriving in your Inbox by routing them to another folder or removing them completely.
Log in to your Gmail account.
Click the check box next to each email you wish to report.
Click the "Report Spam" button, which is indicated by an exclamation button inside an octagon, to block future emails from the sender.
Log in to your Gmail account and click the check box next to the email you want to filter.
Click "More," select "Filter Messages Like This" and choose "Create Filter With This Search."
Check "Delete It" to automatically delete future messages. Alternatively, check "Skip the Inbox (Archive It)" to keep the messages but prevent them from appearing in the Inbox.
Click "Create Filter."
