How to Report, Block, and Unsubscribe from Emails in Gmail

Gmail is a top-rated email service, and if you use it for both your personal and business email needs, your Gmail inbox might be filled with thousands of emails. You might be receiving hundreds of emails; most of them could be legit, while others were just spam.

Although Gmail automatically moves the spam emails to the Spam folder, some spam emails still make their way to your primary inbox. You can choose to ignore the spam emails that appear in your Gmail inbox; the better option is to report and block them.
