Creating a Gmail Bounce Back Message is Now Very Easy

A guide that teaches you how to setup a bounce back error message in a few simple steps!

An ordinary Gmail inbox receives over a thousand emails per month, and if the owner of an email account is a busy person, then a thousand emails can be received just within a day! Even if we consider the lesser number, that is a thousand emails received per month, the number of mails still seems pretty huge for anyone to realistically deal with.

Common courtesy teaches us to respond to every email we receive with sincerity. But let’s face it; in this age where everything moves at a lightning fast speed, nobody really has the time to reply to every email received. The simple fact is that no matter how hard you try, you will have to let go of at least a few of the mails waiting in your inbox without replying.

And truth be told, not every email you receive is worth replying to anyway. Sometimes, it may be even best to ignore a sender totally, in a way that discourages the sender from sending you further mails. In this article, we deal with exactly that. Here we teach you steps to discourage annoying senders from contacting you in future without having to actually block senders, by using an email filtering app called Block Sender for Gmail.

So how can you stop unwanted emails using this particular app, and which simple steps are we talking about? Let us find out:

Step 1: Open the website and download the Gmail junk filter app called Block Sender for Gmail; or you can do the same from the Chrome Store too.

Step 2: Log into your Gmail account and open any email that seems quite useless.

Step 3: Find the ‘Block’ button toward the upper portion of the page, and bring your mouse pointer near it.

Step 4: Click on the small arrow near the ‘Block’ button to expand the Block Sender for Gmail menu.

Step 5: Choose ‘Options’ from the list.

Step 6: Under ‘Pro Blocking Features’ locate ‘Error Message Template’.

Step 7: Click on ‘Edit’ and save the error message you want senders to receive.

After you set the error message, you can send that message to specific senders easily with the help of the Block Sender for Gmail app. Apart from the bounce message feature, the app offers many other features too, like domain block, undo timer, word or phrase blocker etc. Overall, Block Sender for Gmail is a truly useful app for those who cannot tolerate junk emails. In case you have not tried this wonderful spam blocker yet, be sure to get it and see whether you like it or not.

Gmail does an excellent job of blocking spam, but sometimes you just want to go the extra mile and prevent some mail from ever reaching your account.

While Gmail is quite good at blocking spam, nothing had particularly worked for me until I gave Block Sender a shot. This handy little extension for Google Chrome makes blocking Gmail spam ever easier...
