While in your Gmail account check the emails when they come in to your inbox. Go to the upper three buttons on right. Tap to open. A list should show of actions to take. **report as abuse** should open and those emails should disappear! I pray it helps you.

I'm late to this thread. Hopefully, you've followed Cat advice. Gmail has some pretty good spam blocking if you know how to turn these features on. Unless you start marking incoming mails as spam, the software doesn't know anything. All email software has this ability, to varying degrees, to quite effectively filter out unwanted emails.

How to stop raunchy emails? Don't have an enmail address. Seriously.

 

You will *not* stop getting spam. You will *not* stop getting spoof email from contacts (if you don't know what spoofs are, look it up). You will *not* stop getting email from folks you've never heard of.

 

You can block email adresses and domains...you can mark them as spam 'til the cows come home...the *only* way to stop getting stupid stuff in your inbox is to stop getting email. I've been doing this since the mid-90's, and I know that of which I speak. I work at a global Fortune 500, and we still get crap. Same goes with ransomware, malware, adware...but the only way to protect yourself 100% is to pull the plug.

Since you use gmail, try this. Look at the list of emails in your Inbox. So you see the empty boxes to the left of the emails? Put a checkmark in the boxes by the offending emails; then look above the list of emails and click on the icon that looks like an exclamation mark. This marks the email as spam and sends it away. If you accidentally open an offending email, you can see that same exclamation icon at the top. Click on that and it will send it away. Others may have better suggestions, but this works for me. Actually, gmail now keeps my Inbox pretty clean and automatically sends most of these to the Spam folder. Good luck!

Help! How to stop unwanted trashy emails.

Message 6 of 6 (1,379 Views)
Suddenly in my gmail I am getting raunchy e mails from various people. I have not opened any or have I ever gone to any sight related to this stuff. I'm an 87 years old woman and not technically savvy and no one else has access to my computer. When I tried to follow directions to block or filter they fail. I have looked for a Google phone number to speak to someone to help me. I received 12 in the last few day. I send them to trash but what can I do to stop this. The titles refer to sexual activity.
