Recently, Google updated its Gmail app for Android by introducing two new options- block and subscribe in your settings menu. Before blocking spam emails, categorize your emails into spam and the automatic mails sent by companies that you require. Spam mails don’t stop getting delivered to you once you just mark them as spam. So here’s how to block Spam mails using your Android device-
- Launch Gmail App.
- Open a Spam mail.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the mail.
- Tap on ‘Unsubscribe here’ link.
This will stop spam mails from that particular company being delivered to you. The link is present only if the company is legitimate. Do so for all the other mails you wish to stop being delivered to you. Unsubscribing to such emails will reduce the pain of categorizing mails as spam. Just marking a mail as spam is of no use as once it is marked it is up to Google to decide whether the company is legitimate or not and this will not stop spam emails being delivered to you.
