How to Filter Emails in Gmail

Each of us experience uncountable junk mails every single day, and the process of recognizing the important mails ignoring the spam ones can take quite a while. The process is definitely not fun, and can often be very annoying and stressful.

That is why installing the Gmail spam filter Block Sender can be very helpful. With the help of the application, you will be able to stop all junk emails from reaching your inbox with a single click. The application allows you to filter mails by sender, website name or subject line.

In order to filter all the unwanted or annoying emails with the help of the Block Sender Gmail junk filter app, use the following no-brainer process:

Step 1: Install the application by visiting or Google Chrome app store. Click the ‘Install’ button, and wait for the ‘Add to Chrome’’ dialog box to appear. Once the dialog box appears, select ‘Add’.

Step 2: Now, open your Gmail inbox. You are going to see a new button marked as ‘Block’ in the area where other buttons are located.

Step 3: Now, use the drop down menu of the ‘Block’ button to select ‘Options’.

Step 4: In this step, you are going to select the default action taken by the app. If you need to block Gmail contacts frequently, then select the first option called ‘Block all email from the specific sender’. In case you mostly want to block emails from websites, then select the second option. The last option is to be selected if you constantly find yourself annoyed at messages having certain specific subject lines.

Step 5: This is the step where you choose the location for the blocked mails. You can either choose the messages to be archived, or to be sent to trash.

Step 6: It is the final step of the blocking process. In this process, you simply need to open an email from a sender or website that you are not a fan of, and click the ‘Block’ option. In case you do not want further emails having the same subject line, you can configure that too.

As you have noticed, the process of blocking emails using the Block Sender app for Gmail is very straightforward and user-friendly. Moreover, this process of getting rid of spam does not consume huge chunks of your time, making Block Sender the ideal app for all your email filtering needs.
