can some one let me know how l can block a certain e-mail sender, l have tried asking person to stop but with no luck (e-mails not nasty or naughty just annoying) have tried putting it as spam but with no luck. Thankyou.
Are you using the new TalkTalk Mail or asking about another webmail service or and email client or email app?
For the new TalkTalk Mail you can use Filter Rules to create and edit a personal blacklist of email addresses and / or other unsolicited / unwanted email.
Select the Menu option top right (triple line hamburger icon)
Select Settings from the list
Select Mail (left side panel)
Select Filter Rules
If no previous rules exist then Select Add new rule
Or if the Blocked Sender's Filter rule or Blacklist rule is there Use the Edit option to Add conditions or edit an existing condition
In this example my Blacklist will apply if any individual condition is met - is a specific email From address, all email From the .ru domain and any email that contains "Double glazing" in the subject or body of the email.
In this example I'm simply filing those emails into the Spam folder. But I could choose the action to Discard them so they would never arrive in the mailbox or to Reject them with a reason.
You can use Filter Rules to reject emails from a specific sender. Select the email, select the More actions menu within the email display and select Create filter rule.
Give the rule a name
Decide if you need multiple conditions to apply
The subject title is included by default If discarding / rejecting the sender's email is required regardless of subject then Select the dustbin icon for the 'Subject' condition
Add an action In this example, Discard or choose Reject with reason - add the reason in the text box
Decide if you need other rules to run (or untick Process subsequent rules)
Select the blue Save button
You've now prevented the sender's emails from arriving in your Inbox.
