Is someone made you really pissed off by his regular useless or spam emails which you do not want to receive. Well, then you can simply block him and sit back and relax.

In outlook you can block a particular email address form which you do not wish to receive any kind of email. This is surely a great feature and helps you avoid pesky emails. The next time the sender sends you any emails, then either that email will be deleted or will be sent to the junk folder so your inbox will be neat and clean with the emails you want to be there.

To block by Domain – @yahoo.com, @gmail.com

Note: If you used the block by domain option, no any email address on this domain will be able to send you mails. For example, if you used @gmail.com , then no one with an email on gmail.com will be able to send you message as that will be automatically filtered by Outlook.
