Create a filter rule that sends 'ends with' @gmail.com to Junk, Trash, or another folder you create. You can then review those emails at your leisure. Deleting them in one fell swoop if appropriate. At least they won't clog up your Inbox.


What if legitimate emails come from a gmail account?

That's why the filter is sending them to a designated folder. You than can review the email before deleting them.

I created a folder called REVIEW that sends non essential email that I don't want taking up space in my Inbox. Then check the contents when I have time, though not as often as my Inbox.

I agree. Deleting is not enough. Report as spam.

If the spam seems to be originating from a "legitimate" email, have you contacted that person to let them know?

I have Yahoo email, I just click the obvious spam emails as "spam" and Yahoo seems to stop any further emails from that address. I do try to make sure it is not a hacked email from someone I know, in case some legitimate emails might be mixed in.

As far as I know Yahoo won't block a domain like gmail.com, plus I wouldn't want it to. I don't think you want to block an entire domain, that would block way too much.

Reporting doesn't prevent the same spammers from targeting your email as it just blocks sender's specific address. Since they are aware of this, they create new email addresses knowing that a certain percent will always get through.

To a point. I use Juno and if I keep reporting items as junk, their system identifies subject line and will filter emails with similar subject lines even if the sender email is different.

For it to be effective though, I have to use Juno's online email system to identify emails as junk. If I do it through a third party like Thunderbird, it doesn't work.
