How can you block people on Hotmail?

Simply "Junk" the mail. Hotmail will ask you to block the sender automatically.

I checked it out with a dummy account and it works without sending the blocked item to the trash - the email simply does not go into your account at all...

1. Click options on the right hand side of your hotmail account (upper right)

2. At the bottom of this menu there is " more options"

3. on the next page you should see a choice of "Junk Email"

4. under that there will be a selection called "safe and blocked senders"

5. In this section you will see a small section called "blocked Senders"

6. Add the email of the putz you need to be done with (paraphrase lol)
