The number of unwanted messages received in our Inboxes daily seems to be increasing steadily. There’s all this noise from mailings lists or people we’d prefer not to interact with.


How to Block a Domain in Gmail


Fortunately, Gmail helps you organize your email with its cool filtering feature. If you want to know how to use it to block emails from a particular domain, we’ll show you how in this article.


There are slight functionality differences in Gmail for mobile and desktop. Blocking a domain can only be done via the desktop version, as the mobile version caters to blocking individual senders only. Today we’ll explain both methods and a bunch of other useful Gmail tips.


How To Block a Sender’s Domain in Gmail on an iPhone


From the Gmail app, you can only block an individual sender. However, blocking a domain can be done via the “Create filters” feature available on the desktop.


To block an individual sender via your iPhone:



  1. Sign in to the Gmail app.

  2. Locate and open the email from the sender you want to block.

  3. At the top right of the email, tap on the three-dotted horizontal menu icon.

  4. Select “Block “sender” from the pop-up menu.


Moving forward, all incoming messages from that sender will be moved to your spam folder.


To filter all incoming emails from a particular domain:



  1. Sign in to your Gmail account. To create a filter:

    • Using Gmail for desktop on your iPhone, click on the “Create a filter” option towards the top of the screen.

    • Using Gmail for desktop on your PC, select the message from the domain you wish to block. Select the three-dotted horizontal menu icon towards the top of the screen, then choose “Filter messages like these.”



  2. In the filter box, the “From” text field will have the sender’s address. To filter the domain, you can just inspect the email address. If, for example, the message is from [email protected], deleting the name would leave the @example.com part.

  3. Next, click “Create filter.”

  4. Select which action you’d like Gmail to take with messages from this domain, e.g., “Delete it.”

  5. Choose “Create filter” to confirm.


From now on, any messages from that domain will be treated as configured.

Return to Sender


Daily, we’re bombarded with unwanted messages from mailing lists we’ve forgotten to unsubscribe from and senders that have somehow gotten hold of our email address. Important messages can easily get lost as a result.


Gmail’s filter feature can help you to reduce incoming mail by preventing messages from undesired individuals or companies from getting into your Inbox.
