How to Block Senders on iOS

Manually add an email address or domain to block list:

Step 1: In your Canary Mail app, open the Preferences by going to Menu > Settings. 

Step 2: In Settings, tap on ‘Blocked’.

Step 3: Make sure that blocking is enabled by turning on the ‘Block Senders’ toggle switch. 

Step 4: Click on the add button (+) at the top right corner of the screen to add an email address or domain. To remove an email address or domain, ‘Swipe Left’ on the address or domain in the list and tap on ‘Unblock’.

Step 5: Additionally, you can choose the outcome for your blocked mails using the ‘Actions for Blocked Emails’ option. You can do the following:

i) Send to Trash: This setting sends you emails directly to the trash folder and they do not show up in your inbox.

ii) Keep it in the Inbox, Mark as Blocked: The emails will arrive in your inbox marked with a blocked 🚫 symbol.

Block a Sender’s Address or Domain From Your Inbox:

Step 1: Open the email from the sender you want to block.

Step 2: Locate the sender’s name at the top of the email. Tap on the email header to reveal the Sender’s information. Now, tap on the Sender’s name

Step 3: From the menu, tap on “Block.”

Step 4: The Block Sender window will open. Here, Canary Mail provides two options:

i) Block Sender: This option blocks the email address of the sender. Thus, all the emails from the email address will be marked as blocked.

ii) Block domain: This Option blocks all email addresses from the sender domain. Emails from addresses with this domain will thus be marked as blocked.

Step 5: Henceforth, all the emails from the selected sender or domain will be blocked. They will either be automatically sent to your trash folder or be marked as blocked in your inbox, as per your Block sender settings.
