How to Block an Email Address in Norton 360

Sometimes you are going to receive emails that you do not want. This is the price that we pay as Internet users.

Whether the unwanted email originates from a list to which you personally added an address or if it was something outside of your control, such as when one of your friend’s email addresses gets hacked, there is a very good chance that you will start receiving spam.

Typical Internet courtesy involves the inclusion of an Unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email, but more nefarious senders won’t feel the need to give you this option.

Luckily there are many options available for filtering spam and unwanted emails. This can occur directly within the mail application offered by your provider, or you can use a third-party program to manage your unwanted emails.

You can block an email address in Norton 360 using the Blocked Senders list, which will ensure that any email received from a blocked address will not make its’ way into the inboxes of mail programs that Norton 360 is protecting.
