Un­wanted emails from a dat­ing agency

Mac Format - - MAC SOS -

Is there a way of block­ing emails from one par­tic­u­lar site? In this case, ‘POF’, which I un­der­stand to be Plenty Of Friends, which reg­u­larly in­vites me to meet up with dif­fer­ent women on their site. It might be nice for some, but it’s not my cup of tea. It al­ways ap­pears on my iCloud email, on all de­vices iMac, iPhone 6 and iPad. I would ap­pre­ci­ate any help in stop­ping th­ese emails. Dave Jones Plenty of Fish – pof.com – has been crit­i­cised in the past for se­cu­rity breaches, spam and an un­help­ful at­ti­tude to re­mov­ing ad­dresses from its email list. I don’t think it’s worth wast­ing your time con­tact­ing the site. It’s much bet­ter to han­dle this us­ing the nor­mal junk mail fil­ter­ing sys­tem. By sim­ply mark­ing an email as junk in the Mail app, fu­ture emails from that ad­dress should be blocked. If that isn’t enough, log in at icloud.com, click Mail and then click the gear icon in the bot­tom-left. Choose Rules and add a new rule that fil­ters any mes­sages that con­tain ‘pof.com’ or which con­tain cer­tain phrases in the sub­ject line. Set th­ese to be au­to­mat­i­cally moved to the Junk mail folder and you won’t ever see them again.
