Blocking emails prevents the sender’s email from reaching your inbox.

Depending on the email provider you use, unwanted emails will be redirected to your Spam folder or automatically deleted.

If email from a blocked sender still shows up in your inbox, the sender may have changed their email address.

Users will not be notified that they have been blocked.

If you’re trying to prevent spam, IT experts say it can be more effective to report them as spam in your email client, so they can be forced to stop sending annoying emails.

Hide your emails from spammers

That’s not the only way you can protect yourself from unwanted messages.

In December, Apple rolled out a new security tool to help iPhone owners protect themselves from pesky spammers.

Apple fans will know that iOS 15 has a feature called Hide My Email that lets you use an alternate email address when signing up for an account online.

It is designed to keep your personal email address private so that it does not appear on marketing databases.

Apple extended this feature with the release of iOS 15.2, allowing you to hide your email address when communicating with someone you don’t know.

When you hide your email address in the Mail app, your email recipients will see a wrong address.

Emails they send back will still arrive in your personal email account’s inbox.

To try it out for yourself, open Mail app and click A new message icon at the bottom right of your screen.

Touch Cc / Bc, From: field to collapse it and then tap Are from Again. Option Hide My Email.
