Dealing with junk mail

Often I get unwanted emails that do not offer to unsubscribe.  
How can I dispose of those from a frequent sender I would like
to stop sending.  Currently I am just deleting the latest annoying

Small question with a big answer.

Depending on the company that sent the email, sometimes unsubscribe doesn't do what we hope it does. In the United States there is a law requiring companies to allow recipients to opt out. However that law doesn't prohibit that same company from auto enrolling you in 7 over email lists when unenrolling from one. This occurs mostly in emails sent from outside the U.S. from companies less than reputable.

When you click to unsubscribe from an email list, often what you've actually done is told that sender you actually looked at the content. Therefore you are even more valuable to them in the future. The best way to deal with this is to first evaluate whether the email is legitimately from the company it claims to be from. One way to do this is to hover your mouse over the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the page. The link's address will show up in a small box revealing the actual address you're about to go to. If the address contains the expected company's then you're probably fine to proceed with unsubscribing. However, if the first few words or characters in the URL look suspicious. Don't go there.

In this case, the best thing to do is use the phone's or computer's ability to label it as junk. Unfortunately, marking an email as junk doesn't cover everything. Marking as junk simply tells the computer that the next time that exact user sends an email, move it to junk. Junk senders know this, therefore they rarely send emails from the exact same address twice. Once it may be 233lr0m2; then the next it may be

So the next way to fix this is to use rules. Your apple computer's Mail program gives us the ability to set specific rules or behaviors for different emails. For instance, you can make a rule that says "if the email contains" "" then delete. This will only apply to your email if the mail program is open on a mac that is currently running. This way it will filter your email before it sits on your phone.

The phone also has a junk mail ability. Swiping to the left, then choosing "more" give you the ability to mark as junk. In your case, it sounds like just making a rule applied to that one sender should do the job. Just realize if you change your mind and want to start seeing emails from that person in the future, you'll need to remove that rule.
