This short guide explains how to block an entire domain (example.com) from being able to send email to your Gmail address.
Gmail has made it pretty easy to block a single email address from being able to send you mail. Blocking entire domains is pretty easy too, there’s just an extra step or two – here’s what to do:
- Head over to Gmail in a web browser rather than an email App.
- Open an email from one of the addresses of the domain you wish to block and then click the More button (the one that looks like 3 dots on top of each other, found in the upper-right corner of the email message). Select Filter messages like this from the list of options.
- In the From field change the address from email@example.com to *@domain.com and then click the Create filter button.
- Finally, select Delete it from the list of actions. If you want to delete all of the messages that have been previously sent to you from that domain, place a check in the Also apply filters to x matching conversations box. Click the Create filter button when you’re done.
- That’s it! From now on whenever someone email you from an address using the domain in question, it will be deleted.
