If someone is bothering you on Gmail, it’s easy to block them. In this article, I’ll show you how to permanently block someone on Gmail.
Once you have blocked someone in Gmail, they will no longer be able to contact you through Google Hangouts or by emailing you directly. They will also not be able to see your profile picture or use Google to search for your name.
How to permanently block someone on Gmail
You can block any user from contacting you on Gmail with just a few clicks:
Sign in to your Gmail account at gmail.com.
Select the person’s name from the email header or the list of recipients (to the right of “To”).
Click Block “person’s name” at the bottom of the page under “More actions.”
The person will receive an email stating that they have been blocked.
Note: You can only block people who send mail to your Gmail account. If someone sends you an email from another address, such as Yahoo Mail or Hotmail, then blocking that person won’t affect their ability to contact you.
For example, if someone sends a message from his personal gmail account, it will get blocked because it uses the same server as yours. But if that person sends an email from a different service like Yahoo or Hotmail, it won’t be blocked because those services don’t use the same server as Google’s service so they won’t be able to see whether or not you’ve been blocked.
