Do you ever get email messages that just donâ€™t stop? Do you try to click the unsubscribe button, but the messages just donâ€™t go away? Thereâ€™s a way to stop those messages for good, and itâ€™s easier than making a Gmail filter. There's an awesome plugin for Chrome called Block Sender for Gmail. This nifty little plugin gives you an extra button in your Gmail account that allows you to simply block mail from a sender forever without needing to create a Gmail filter.
Block Sender gives you a Block button, next to the Archive, Spam, and Delete buttons. Press it once to activate the extension and remove the sender's message while also blocking all future messages.
Blocking a sender doesn't notify them at all. Instead, the extension quietly hides future messages from them from your inbox, or optionally delete all future messages if you want. If you want to automatically archive invoices, newsletters, or automated messages, you can enable the smart Sender and Subject Block to only match future messages from the sender with the same subject line.
Block Sender is intelligent, so you can flag future messages from potentially spammy domains so you can recognize them before you open them. The plugin is also forgiving, allowing you to undo an accidental block within moments and customize the settings for more flexibility.
If you blog about Block Sender, you can get the pro version for free! (The default version comes with a limited number of blocks).
