With Gmail dominating the world of free email providers, many people are fond of using it as their preferred electronic mail service. Gmail allows one to create a free email account that is valid for a lifetime for as long as one doesn’t violate the terms of use as stated by Google.

Email serves a lot of purposes including school assignment sending, staying in contact with friends and family, creating other online accounts like PayPal, etc. By using Gmail and considering the fact that many people have more than a single email account, receiving unwanted emails in form of online promotions, spam, etc is unavoidable.

By blocking an email message in Gmail, it means that you will no longer be able to receive messages from that particular sender thus giving you peace of mind. For privacy, learn how to create an email without phone verification.
