There are some email senders that you never want to hear from. You can not prevent them from sending emails, but you can set Gmail to automatically delete the emails as soon as they arrive. Here’s how.
Gmail has a simple yet powerful filtering system that you can use to process incoming emails. We will use this to create a filter that removes email from a specific address so that it never hits your inbox.
Start by visiting the Gmail website, then click the arrow in the search box.
Click the arrow to open the advanced search options. Enter the email address whose messages you want to delete automatically, then click the “Create Filter” button.
Select the “Delete it” check box and then select the “Create filter” button.
A confirmation box will appear at the bottom left of the Gmail website.
And that’s all there is to it – your filter has now been created and all emails from the address you selected are automatically deleted without you ever seeing them.
To view and manage your filters, go back to the Gmail homepage, click the “Gear” icon at the top right of the site, and then select “View All Settings.”
Open the “Filters and blocked addresses” tab, then click “Edit” and “Delete” to manage your filter.
