How do I block unwanted e-mail?

I get 20-30 unwanted e-mail every day, with correct logos for my bank, postoffice etc, but the adress reveals it is humbug. In earlier days, it was possible to block unwanted e-mail addresses, how can this be done in Firefox. I use a MacBokk Air with IOS, with regards Bernt Anda

That's something your email program or site email provider that does junk or spam filter through your email settings options.

Some e-mail providers have the option to sort incoming mail. Contact your e-mail provider for help.

I cannot find anything in Apple's Mail program that allows blocking. Neither has my e-mail provider anything in the line of blocking, so I am stuck somhow with the problem. Regards Bernt

That doesn't sound right most if not all email provider has such functions. My local ISP provider even has their own filter for my email account with them. You will need to contact them.

And it's not blocking you need, it's sorting. With my provider, any mail coming in is checked and anything not in my contact list goes to the junk folder.

Hello bernt.anda,

If it's Apple's MacOS Mail that you're using, please see :

I just had a closer look at your original post; what you're saying here sounds like people trying to get you to reveal sensitive data. I suggest that you change the password to your email account. (better safe than sorry .... )
