Are you tired of receiving annoying and unwanted emails on your Android device? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to block those pesky emails and regain control over your inbox. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Email App

If you haven’t already, open the email app on your Android device. This could be Gmail, Outlook, or any other email client that you use.

Step 2: Select the Unwanted Email

Scroll through your inbox and find the unwanted email that you want to block. Once you’ve found it, tap on it to open it.

Step 3: Tap on the Three Dots

In the top-right corner of the email, tap on the three dots icon. This will open a menu with various options.

Step 3.1: Mark as Spam

If the email is from an unknown sender or looks suspicious, select the “Mark as spam” option from the menu. This will not only block future emails from this sender but also help improve spam filtering algorithms for others.2: Block Sender

If you specifically want to block emails from this sender without marking them as spam, choose the “Block” or “Block sender” option from the menu. This will prevent any future emails from reaching your inbox.

Step 4: Confirm Blocking

A pop-up window will appear asking for confirmation to block the sender or mark as spam. Read through it carefully and if you’re sure about your decision, tap on “OK” or “Confirm”.

Step 5: Repeat as Necessary

Congratulations! You’ve successfully blocked or marked an unwanted email. If you have more unwanted emails from different senders, repeat steps 2 to 4 for each one until your inbox is clean and free from unwanted messages.

Optional: Managing Blocked Senders

If you ever change your mind or want to unblock a sender, you can do so by accessing the settings of your email app. Look for options like “Blocked senders” or “Spam settings” and manage the list accordingly. Remember, this may vary depending on the email client you’re using.


Blocking unwanted emails on your Android device is a simple yet effective way to regain control over your inbox. By following these steps, you can keep your email account free from spam and unwanted messages. So go ahead, take action against those annoying emails, and enjoy a clutter-free mailbox!
