Blocking Contacts/Email Senders in iOS 13 Mail App

The iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 have brought in a number of privacy and security features to the receiving devices. Among these is the so-called Block Sender feature that is specifically designed to automatically archive new email from a particular sender in the stock Mail app. The Block Sender feature also allows you to block a certain contact from sending emails with the Mail app.

What Happens when you Blocked an Email Sender in Mail?

New email notifications from anyone in the blocked list won’t show up on your device but will still appear in your inbox. An indication that the email comes from a blocked contact is a gray hand icon next to the preview line.

If you don’t want to see any email from a blocked sender in your inbox at all, then you can adjust some settings in the Mail app that would send any new email from a blocked contact straight to the trash.

In case you’re wondering how to access and manage this setting on your new iPhone SE 2020, I’ve created a step-by-step walkthrough for you to follow. Here’s how to access and manage Blocked Sender Options on the recently rolled special edition iOS smartphone.
