It can get very annoying when a lot of the emails you receive are junk, spam, or just unimportant. Not to worry, we can show you how to take control of your inbox by preventing those emails.
If you are aware of the email address you wish to get rid of, you can block it. As soon as it is blocked, all emails coming from the sender will be sent straight to the Spam folder. See how to block spam in Gmail below.
