How Do I Block Some Unwanted Emails?

I have been getting several unwanted emails from people I don’t even know. I’d like to block them so I never see them again, but don’t know how to do it. Could you please help? Thanks, Gary

    It depends on which email system you use. For instance, if you use Gmail, you can log into the Gmail web interface, add a "filter" in the settings, and set email from those addresses to go directly to trash.
    With iCloud, you can create a "rule" in the Mail web interface that does the same thing.
    But keep in mind that if it is spam email then this won't do much good. Spam email "comes" from different email addresses all the time. So filtering out one email address won't do any good as you'll likely never get a message from that email address again. The next piece of spam will come from some other fake email address.
