Blocking good for anything?
Email blocker as well as a start for just about anything that is not spam.
For example, if a particular individual you want to block, you can block their email address.
But as I mentioned earlier, even then, blocking will not be effective if they have enough support to pass.
All they need to do is get a new email address to send from … and who are trivially easy to get.
Block email and spam folder.
I want to start by clearing something up.
You say that the letter is to “continually to my spam box.” That may be what is blocking email that is in your email program, “the email from this sender to put it in the garbage.”
That’s what the junk folder (commonly known as “spam” folder) is for, and that is a definition of e-mail blocking.
Different email programs use different techniques and definitions, but if that’s how your program works, then it works as expected.
false email address
Stop! Spammers worked hard to fool you. One technique is to make email look like they’re from someone they do not.
email address usually consists of two parts: its own email address, and an optional “display name”. For example, you might see:
From: Leo A. Notenboom <email@example.com>
There you can see both the display name, “Leo A. Notenboom”, and email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and it is quite clear is that.
Display name is optional, but if it is present, many email programs will display it, and not the actual email address. In that case, your email program might show you something like this:
From: Leo A. Notenboom
Your e-mail program can display real email address if you hover your mouse cursor over the display name, or can click on it.
Spammers, on the other hand, often do this:
From: email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Here the display name is “email@example.com” but the actual e-mail address is “firstname.lastname@example.org”. So in some email programs, you will see this:
It looks like an email from email@example.com, but it is not.
You can block “firstname.lastname@example.org” if you want, but that will not stop this particular email, because that is not where it really came from.
Always change your email address
Because spammers can manipulate the “From:” address for easy, there is a technique that they use a personal address that renders completely prevent inefficient.
They simply do not send “From:” address more than once.
You can get the exact same spam over and over, but each time it will be “From:” address a completely different. You can block the address if you want, but that will not affect their next email sent, or later, or the one after that, because they come from a different address.
Couple that with the tricks spammers use to fool you is exactly what real email addresses are used, and get very confusing very quickly.
Short answer is to use the sender to stop spam blocker is a waste of time and effort.
Instead of, replace…
Most email programs, and almost all web-based email services, email marked as spam. This allows the service to learn what is and is not spam. While spam may not have been blocked immediately, as you report spam more and more over time, more of it will be blocked: the software will send it to your spam folder instead your inbox.
Google’s spam filters (as used in Gmail) seems to be especially effective in these days.
If that does not work, I suggest you relax and just use your Delete key. It’s simple, fast and 100% accurate.
In my view, prevent the sender’s email is seriously overrated.
It promises to block sender email from you, but if the sender is determined enough, the blocks are easily overlooked.
And spammers are determined … boy, are they determined! So much so that the blocked sender is pretty much useless in the fight against spam.
I will explain why, and what I would do instead.
