An option to block a sender from being able to send you mail
It would be great to be able to block certain email addresses from being able to send you emails. Not just a filter to go to “spam” but being able to actually block the sender totally

how to delete a mailbox?
I am the daily victim of a targeted campaign. Cleaning out the SPAM folder every day is not a sufficient solution.
We need a proper black hole filter.
I have to say, it's very disheartening to see that there are a large number of posts going back at least 3 years with these requests to better handle spam detection (backend) and UI controls (frontend) for users.
Are there any plans or discussions to either address these concerns or at least an official response regarding the handling of spam messages in protonmail?

If your tech team would take a look at Yahoo email, they would see the ease of a right click on sender to block from ever having to see them again. The sender is completely blocked, not sent to spam, trash or anywhere, just blocked.
If they can do it at Yahoo I'm sure it can't be that hard.
Please develop a tool for blocking spam from senders who will not let you unsubscribe from their fundraising harassments. Case in point: Dudley Brown slams me as often as he can hit the resend key, and uses Rand Paul to legitimize his harassment.

If someone is sending harassing emails, or spam, or whatever other types of unwanted emails, it would be nice to have a button/checkbox to set to "block sender", and then have all messages from that address be deleted even before they hit your inbox.
There are several similar requests. Just sending to spam is a useful stopgap but as mentioned by others, if you're being harassed it's better to be able to block the mail entirely. Another feature request like this mentioned to just auto-delete them.
My current workflow involves marking all emails I don't actively need in the future as spam so I can scroll through and bulk delete them, keeping my storage requirements low. The automatic marking of these messages as blocked breaks that, so I'd like to be able to toggle it at will

I get approximately 50 to 60 emails per day on another server. I don't have time to sit down at night jump through a bunch of hoops and jumps in order to block crap that I didn't ask for and don't want. I consider it a raping of my time. At present on two other email accounts, I have 8,923 emails and 9,473 on another.
They already have this. It's called the spam folder and filter...
I too am looking to avoid the emails from a particular sender, but I see them as the notification for the spam folder increases. Currently, the "block" functionality sends emails to spam.
I wish to be fully(!) ignorant. Help me with ProtonMail, you're my only hope.

Block incoming e-mails; filter to automatically delete
Have an option to block a sender like gmail doe
I just realized this wasn't a feature offered, as an abusive family member I'd cut off contact with years ago found my email through another contact. If I have to be triggered by being forced to still delete their messages out of trash or spam, I'll have to delete my account entirely. What a huge oversight in programming.

The ability to block domains from spam factories is a must these days. You have to create hundreds of filters to block the same people. A simple addition to block the entire domain would make life much easier.
I as of lately am constantly receiving unwanted emails, where "marking as spam" or adding it to a "block list" does not make it stop! i have heard of other people creating a workaround just to simply block someone who won't stop harassing me. but you have to be a "teckie" to figure out how to use these complicated steps just to do a simple task! Please consider this, proton!
Dear Mr. re
I liked your service a lot, but I have 2 requests to improve the service, I repeat I like it a lot,
1- add the possibility to block some email addresses from which I receive advertising emails. Now there is only the possibility to report phising, but not to block advertising emails. Please do so.
2- I want more colourful graphics, with larger fonts, intuitive icon-based graphics.
Thank you very much from Francesco Zaccaro
I agree and would like more control over spam. The amount I get is minimal but its annoying when it slips through the spam filters. I would like to contribute to the overall spam filters by being able to create a black list based on:
Senders Address, Senders Domain, Unsubscribe domains, specific words or phrases.

I'd like to ban an email address from sending me mail. Maybe send them a bounce mesg.
