Blocking Email

Hi, I’ve blocked email addresses from contacting me but they still get through? Is there a way we can stop them permanently?

Re: Blocking Email

Is this just spam emails or an individual bothering you?
Either way your options are limited on Optus email. I would recommend switching your email to a non RSP dependent one (you lose your email if you ever leave Optus). SOmething like GMail is free and its pretty easy these days to port emails across over the course of a few months. You get better filtering and security and control over blacklists etc.

The added advantage is that your unwanted emailer won't know your new address.

Re: Blocking Email

Spam uses different email addresses every time (though they look the same to you). Normally you'd blacklist the title or part of the content to flag it. Not sure if you can do that in Optus.
