Mail blocking does not work

I block addresses all the time, have it marked to go to trash, but they still show up in my mail with a notation that this message is from a sender on your blocked list. Happens on both my phone and iPad. Both are up to date iOS wise. Anyone know what gives?

Set up a rule for those email sources to be filed in Junk.

I don't have that problem because I have all email forwarded to my Gmail account. I just label an email as Spam and all subsequent email from that sender goes into the Gmail Spam folder. I never see it on my Mac. It is still available for 30 days in my gmail account on the website.

Just to add to modelmac's Gmail tip. I've found if I report spam email
to Gmail as "phishing attempt", it doesn't take long for their AI systems to
block the offenders' domain. My spam folders aren't getting filled anymore.
ymmv

Interesting...and good to know. Do you do that with stuff already in your Trash folder, too? I just checked and there's a bunch of crap that GMail designated (correctly) as Spam and subsequently moved to Trash. Any point in going back in and labeling them as phishing?

As an aside, I find in interesting that there are often themes with these Spam emails. For example, just on my first page of Trash, there are probably al half dozen having to do with Portable Oxygen Concentrators. Or are they just guessing because they know I'm an old fart?
