If Blocking A Sender Doesn’t Help

Be sure to only block a sender that isn’t important. If you block an email address from, for example, your accountant, or bank, then you will miss the information you need.

Blocked emails will be sent straight to a spam or junk folder and deleted permanently after a 30-day period (for most mail service providers).

However, sometimes blocking a single email address doesn’t help.

If your inbox is clogged up with spam, blocking will not stop it! Spammers are too clever to succumb to being blocked.

Once they have your mail address, they can keep sending you spam by changing their email, and you won’t even notice.

Spammers or marketers can change the address to keep sending you messages and avoid being totally blocked. In this case, you will need to block the whole domain if they are sending you junk messages from their custom domain.

You can block a specific domain in Clean Email and here is how:

  1. Launch the application and click Auto Clean tool from the left-side menu. Then click Create Rule button.
  2. Give a name to this rule and go to Any sender or recipients.
  3. Name the Auto Clean rule in Clean EmailName the Auto Clean rule in Clean Email
  4. Choose Sender Domain in the drop-down list. In the search box below, start typing the domain you’d like to be blocked and choose it from the items found.
  5. Sender domain in Clean EmailSender domain in Clean Email
  6. Select the action you want to apply to the messages from this domain like sending them to Trash. Press Create Rule button.

⚠️ Warning: You need to CLICK a domain found in the search results. If you don’t do this and just type the domain address manually, all messages from your inbox may be affected.

This way you will create an Auto Clean rule that can be found under the Auto Clean dashboard.
