@OrchidsandCandles:  Send his emails straight to junk mail, so you won’t even see them!

Ugh, sorry hun, that is really low of him…but it only proves that you totally made the right choice letting him go. Good luck on exams! 🙂

Wow, he has sour grapes for sure!

I googled this and it looks that while you can’t block, you can send his messages straight to the trash, where they belong 🙂


Blocking mail from certain senders


Sometimes you may get unwanted mail that isn’t necessarily spam.

While you can’t currently block messages from specific addresses or domains, you can set up a filter to send those unwanted messages directly to Trash.

To set up a filter, follow these steps:

  1. Click Create a filter under the search box at the top of any Gmail page.
  2. Fill in the appropriate fields with the filter’s criteria, and click Next Step.
  3. Choose the action you’d like for these messages by checking the appropriate box. (In this case, we suggest checking Delete it.)
  4. Click Create Filter.

Can you delete them without reading them?

What a hypocrite!

As tempting as it is to look, just ignore or like others said send to junk. You make him what he is to you in your life. The more attention and thought, the bigger of a presence he becomes. Ignore, and he diminishes.

@MissPine:  I was just about to post this same info on how to block someone from emailing.

Definitely block him.  You don’t need to hear from him.

Ugh. Yet another thing that shows you made the right choice by leaving him.

As PP said, just open one email from him and mark it as spam. 

With your phone, either you can call your phone service provider and have them block his number for you (I think it’s free if you tell them you’re being harassed), or you can reply to one of his texts, “Who is this? I just got this new number yesterday. I think you have the wrong number.” Option A is a lot easier and permanent.

I would email him back with this:


And of course, follow through, keep all the emails AFTER this and get yourself a lawyer if he doesn’t stop. And sue him.

@OrchidsandCandles:  Why don’t you unfriend anyone related to him, or at least put them in a category where they can’t see much on your profile?

With all due respect, it may be worth considering if you’re getting something out of these interactions. You mentioned rage and amusement – those emotions have some physical hormones associated with them that can cause you to continue to want that feeling. It would have been easy with a simple google search to see how to block a emails from him. It would be simple to go on your cell phone provider’s website or call them to see about blocking a number. It would be easy to disengage from people on Facebook who might cause problems.

Sometimes people enjoy a bit of drama in their lives – heck, I know it keeps things interesting! It’s not that they WANT it, but it’s that they are getting some sort of amusement/feeling out of it that makes it not worth going out of their way to end it. Just something to kick around and see if it has any bearing for you. But if you really wanted to not be thinking about this, you might not be posting about it on an online forum when you could be putting blockers in place.

How old are you and how old is he, if I may ask? I’m sure I could go back and get a bit more context through your old posts.

Delete them all off facebook! It’s obvious that you won’t be continuing a relationship with them if they are so immature to report your every move to him. It’s doing nothing but fueling the fire by keeping them on your friends list.
