Blocking messages from a sender or a domain

 

You can block messages from a particular sender or domain.  The domain is the name following the @ symbol in an email address.

 

When you block a sender or domain, no e-mail or news message from that sender or domain will arrive in your Inbox or in the news messages you read.  E-mail from blocked senders goes directly into your Delete folder.  Newsgroup messages from blocked senders are not displayed.
