Have you ever accidentally blocked an email address in Gmail on your Android device and now you’re wondering how to unblock it? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to easily unblock an email address in Gmail on your Android phone or tablet.

Step 1: Launch the Gmail App

To get started, locate and tap on the Gmail app icon on your Android device’s home screen or app drawer. The Gmail app logo looks like a red and white envelope.

Step 2: Access the Menu

Once you have opened the Gmail app, look for the three horizontal lines in the top-left corner of the screen. Tap on these lines to access the menu.

Step 3: Go to Settings

In the menu, scroll down until you find the “Settings” option and tap on it. This will open a new screen with various settings for your Gmail account.

Step 4: Select the Blocked Addresses Option

Within the Settings screen, scroll down until you see an option called “Blocked addresses.” Tap on this option to proceed.

Step 5: Unblock Email Address

You will now see a list of all the email addresses that you have blocked in Gmail. To unblock an email address, simply locate it in the list and tap on it.

Note: If you cannot find the blocked email address in this list, it means that you haven’t blocked any email addresses before or that particular email address is not currently blocked.

Step 6: Confirm Unblocking

After tapping on a blocked email address from the list, you will be redirected to a new screen. Here, you will see information about the blocked email address and a button that says “Unblock.” Tap on this button to confirm that you want to unblock the email address.

Step 7: Success!

Congratulations! You have successfully unblocked the email address in Gmail on your Android device. You will now start receiving emails from this address as usual.

Pro Tip: If you accidentally block an email address again in the future and want to avoid going through these steps, remember that you can always find the “Blocked addresses” option within the Gmail app settings to manage your blocked contacts.
