Customer Question
I want to block...

I want to block an email sender from my ipad. I have moved it to spam (junk) but I continue getting emails from an unwanted sender

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPad?

I am not sure I know.

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your iPad? What troubleshooting have you tried?

2 years ago. I took it to a Geek Squad member today and he thought he had fixed the problem and blocked the email sender but withing an hour, I received another email.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No. Other than how to block an unwanted email

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
