Default Can I block an email address?


Hi,
I am being inundated with emails into my main inbox, not junk mail from the email address quidco@e.quidco.com they all appear as various senders such as “Dyson testers wanted”, “primark gift card” , “eharmony free trial” all rubbish like that but when I click the name that email appears, I keep flagging them as junk or going on what they claim to be the unsubscribe link but no improvement. Can I block the email address? And will that even work if the sender name is showing as different things?
Thank you!

You can take help of rules and filters to stop those emails from reaching your Inbox. But for the same, there should be a common keyword in all those email ids/names.
You can opt to directly delete the email, even before they reach your Inbox.

Take a look at Mailwasher Pro which is used to intercept your e-mail and handle such issues. There's even a free version available - https://www.mailwasher.net/

It is one of the two most useful utilities I have discovered over the years. (The other is SnagIt).

Almost 100% of my spam is blocked by my ISP. Perhaps also check with him
