I am assuming that you are using outlook.com account. If you are not, my method will not work.

Open outlook.com > top right, next to your name, click the Gear icon > select More Mail Settings > under Prevent Junk Emails, click Safe and Blocked senders > click Blocked Senders  > enter the block sender's address > click Add to List .

That's it.

Hi krisvan,

 

Even though you will no longer receive emails from the blocked sender, they will not be notified that you did not receive their emails. Please be informed that this feature is not yet available.

 

However, you can submit a support request for feature requests or feedbacks thru this link

Hi,

I will be glad to help you with the issue you have in adding a sender to the blocked list. I understand the difficulty when things don’t work the way it should.

You can easily add email addresses to the blocked list so you can block users who spam your Inbox and send you useless junk. Below are the steps on how to include them in the Blocked Senders list.

1. Log in to your account.

2. Once your Inbox contents are shown, click the gear icon right beside your account name found on the upper right hand corner.

3. Select options in the drop-down menu.

4. Right under "Preventing junk email", choose Safe and blocked senders.

5. Select Blocked senders.

6. Enter the sender's email address or domain that you wish to be blocked then click Add to list.

Note: Messages from blocked senders are automatically deleted.

 

Hope this information is helpful. Please post in case you have any further concerns. I will be glad to help you.

This does not work at all.

There is no option as you have described.

The can click "options" when you click the gear.

Next you can chose "block senders"

Then you enter the email address and click the cross at the end of the line.

Then you click "save"

Then you send an email from the account that you just entered and it goes right through.

It is not blocked.

So what is the problem?

Outlook Preview somehow replaced the older version, which I loved & these steps for Blocking for me..... doesn't work at all.  How can it be reverted back to the old email version?

Please stop messing with Outlook!  There is no reason for it.
