Are you tired of receiving unwanted emails from a certain individual on your Yahoo Mail app for Android? Well, you’re in luck!

Yahoo Mail provides a simple and effective way to block someone and prevent them from sending you any further messages. In this article, we will guide you through the process of blocking someone on Yahoo Mail on your Android device.

Step 1: Launch the Yahoo Mail App

If you haven’t already, download and install the Yahoo Mail app from the Google Play Store. Once installed, open the app by tapping on its icon in your app drawer or home screen.

Step 2: Access Settings

In order to block someone, we need to access the settings menu within the Yahoo Mail app. To do this, tap on the menu icon located in the top-left corner of the screen. It resembles three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other.

Substep 2.1: Navigate to Settings

From the menu that appears, scroll down until you find “Settings” and tap on it. This will take you to the settings page where you can configure various options for your Yahoo Mail account.

Step 3: Select Blocked Addresses

Within the settings page, scroll down until you come across an option called “Blocked Addresses.” Tap on this option to proceed.

Step 4: Block an Email Address

To block a specific email address, tap on the “+” (plus) icon located at the bottom-right corner of your screen.

Substep 4.1: Enter Email Address

A dialog box will appear asking for the email address you wish to block. Type in or paste the email address into the designated field. Once done, tap on the “Block” button.

Step 5: Confirmation

You will receive a confirmation message informing you that the email address has been successfully blocked. From now on, any emails sent from this address will be automatically moved to your Spam folder and you won’t receive any notifications for them.

Additional Tips:

If you ever change your mind and want to unblock someone, simply follow the same steps mentioned above and tap on the blocked email address in the “Blocked Addresses” section. A confirmation message will appear asking if you want to unblock the address. Tap “Unblock” to remove the block.

  • Remember: Blocking someone only prevents them from sending you emails. It does not prevent them from seeing your public posts or interacting with you through other means.
  • Stay vigilant: Be cautious when blocking someone, as it may sever communication completely. Only block individuals who consistently send unwanted messages or pose a threat to your online safety.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to block someone on Yahoo Mail using your Android device. Now you can enjoy a clutter-free inbox and have more control over who can reach out to you via email.
