Road Runner email has been created with a simple and intuitive interface. One of the best thing is that it allows you to block an email or a domain name. Supposing that you want to block an email address, this can be achieved with only a few mouse clicks. It`s the same with a domain name. If you don`t want to receive emails coming from a specified domain name, again it`s so simple with road runner. Let`s see how we can use this feature. First of all, login to your email account and once you`re there click on the ``SETTINGS`` button. If you have no ideea which one is it, take a look at the following picture :
You should be at the ``SETTINGS`` section and you should see more options here. Take a look at the ``Customize mailbox options`` and take a look at the last option, the one called ``Allow and Block Messages options`` and make sure to click on it. Here is a picture with this option.
The following picture will show you how this window will look. It means that no email or domain has been blocked. I want you to take a look without modifing something so that you can notice the differences between them.
This is how it`s going to look after I modified the ``Allow and Block Messages`` option. Once you`re here, you can actually read the bolded message: ``Specify the specific allow and blocked email addresses below, as well as what to do with the blocked messages.``
Then the first option is called ``Enable blocking``
Select the block senders policy to use:
I choosed the second option - ``Advanced Block senders``
Blocked Senders and Domains
Enter blocked email addresses and domains below. Place each email address or domain on a new line
As you can see in this picture I have entered an email address
mrspammer AT spam.com
The second option is called ``Allowed Senders and Domains``
Enter allowed email addresses and domains below. Place each email address or domain on a new line
As you can see in this picture I have entered several email addresses
mybestfriend AT satx.rr.com
mydad AT yahoo.com
mysister AT gmail.com
mymother AT hotmail.com
There is a third option called ``Blocked Mail Actions``
Automatically delete or file junk mail before it reaches your Inbox.
Here I choosed the second option called ``Forward blocked mail to the Head of the Household``
Place messages in: ( I selected from this drop-down menu ) JUNK MAIL
In order to save everything from here, click on the OK button and you should be redirected back to the ``SETTINGS`` window and you should see a small message with a blue exclamation mark that says the following: ``Allow and block settings updated.``. That`s it
I guess, everyone understood what I typed on those two white boxes, the ones with ``Blocked Senders and Domains`` and ``Allowed Senders and Domains``. I have provided some examples, those are not real email addresses and you should modify them with your own emails or domains that you want them blocked. Perhaps you noticed that I typed www . spam . com and spam . com, in most cases most of you will type either www . spam . com or spam . com but I typed both of them just to make sure that this domain will be blocked. I advise you to do the same.Tweet
