Email is an important part of our life in today’s world and most of us use Google’s Gmail for our email purposes. However, there are many spam emails as well as newsletter, sponsored, or promotional emails that you receive on a daily basis. It makes our inbox cluttered and we often lost important emails between all these promotional or spam emails. Also, it is a very hectic task to delete all these emails manually.

So, if you are someone who is tired of such a situation and has a cluttered Gmail inbox then this article is for you. In this article, we will show you how to block Spam Emails in Gmail. There are three methods that you can use to avoid all the newsletter, sponsored, and promotional emails that you don’t want.

Step 1: Open Gmail and Log on to your account.

Step 2: In the search bar, type Unsubscribe and hit enter.

Step 3: Select all the emails that you don’t want to receive again. Make sure that you don’t select the important emails.

  1. Thank you! However:

    I have had Gmail for my main account since 2006, and in /my/ experience, Gmail’s spam filter is more likely to be on the strong side. I hardly find spam in my Inbox, but I must remember to check my Spam box for messages that should have been in my Inbox.
