Bouncing emails

Hi
I want to stop someone emailing me on my gmail account but even though |I have set up filters, the mails keep right on coming!
I would really like to bounce all of the emails so that he knows I am seriously not getting them or reading them. I am using Win 10 and gmail as an email programme.
Many thanks
Suzanne

just create a filter forwarding all the emails back.

Oh!, I didn't see that option....I'll take another look, thanks. Actually, I created a filter to put them in the bin but that hasn't stopped them either.

Be aware that these emails may not be coming from who they appear to be coming from, the sender may be spoofing the addresses of someone else, if you bounce them back you may end up annoying others who think you are the person sending them.

Are they all coming from the same email address, if not the only way to block them is to try and identify something they all have in common, and make this the thing that you set in the rule to delete them.

If they all come from different addresses and have nothing in common, all you can do is mark them as spam and click the alert gmail button, and hope that gmail can solve the problem for you.

Hi, thanks for your input. No, they're all from the same person, I have asked him to stop but he just carries right on. I don't open them, I just delete them but I'd like him to know that they aren't actually reaching me

it does have that feature, just not spelled out. Just go to settings, click on filters and block, select a new filter then edit, type the address in from to indicate all emails from that person, click on continue, then select forwarding and add the address you want the emails be forwarded to.

Hi, did all that but when I got to the end, it says they've sent a code to his address to get permission to forward it to him!!
