Two years ago i sold a property.
Informed the building managing company as doon as the deal was closed.
Had been receiving each and every email they have sent to regular owners in my email accounts. Get them on my phone, hary never use an email client or webmail access.
Been resending their emails to two addresses of guys who promissed to get this fixed but done nothing about it.
Ran out of patience long ago. Almost ready to get nasty...
It is a mistake to reply to unsolicited email. It marks your address as a "live one" and makes it more valuable for resale. The number of messages sent to you will increase if you do this.
Instead, create a filter in your email client that automatically discards what you don't want to receive. Some people prefer to shuffle these off to a spam folder for review in case the filter makes a mistake (AKA a "false positive").
Just creat a rule to redirect any mail from them to your spam folder. Periodically deleted everything in your spam folder. If you never see the messages, they’ll bother you less.
Spam folder is your friend with shif like this.
Block the email address. Add it to the spam folder
There is no cure for stupidity, you either die from it or with it.
Allows you to bounce back emails, showing the email as undeliverable. I used to use this program and it fooled more than one spammer or person who I wanted to discourage.
I’ll second MailWasher, but you will need MailWasher Pro to be able to bounce email. Been using the program for years. Problem with many of the spammers is that they don’t monitor the address the email is sent from, but those that do will eventually remove you from their list.

Thanks for suggesting MailWasher. I get over 150 spam emails a day.
When I go away for several days, it takes me over an hour to clear my spam folder.
I see Mailwasher is Windows only.

Yes, I need a good software program for Apple that will allow blocking and rejecting emails.
Apple's Mail.app used to have a "bounce" feature, but it was removed years ago. Probably because it doesn't cost any more for spammers to send to bogus email addresses, and they've gotten smarter about detecting bounce efforts, Apple changed and made filtering junk email easier.
On top of Apple's solution, I've been a very satisfied user of SpamSieve, an add-on that includes blacklists, whitelists, a corpus of addresses, and a very large set of rules one can employ to limit spam. If something gets through the "perimeter" gate, I just add a rule, and *poof* I never see that spam again.
You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

If you use Outlook then just create a "rule" to auto-delete or move to deleted folder.
Of course it only works on all devices if your email server is MS Exchange.
Otherwise you have to deal with it individually on all devices.
You also might check to see if you can do this at the server level if your address is GMAIL or similar based WEB/IMAP server.
Not sure but probably doable - I mainly deal with or use Exchange on Premise or O365 which it is accomplishable.
Of course Outlook itself can do it at the computer level too.
Like mentioned above if you use a third party gateway Spam Control that software should be able to as well.
However, it is more easily accomplished if you own your own domain.
Even "legitimate" spam is often sent from addresses that are undeliverable.
Worse: Spammers and scammers often fake the "From:" address using real email addresses that belong to totally innocent third parties. So when you bounce them, you bounce them to somebody else that then becomes a victim.
Doing that can get your own email address blacklisted, which can result in your email getting rejected by others.
Trust me when I tell you this, because this is an area in which I have more than a little experience: You absolutely do not want to wind up on an email blacklist. They are bloody difficult to get off of. Sometimes impossible.

Hmmmm thinking of the ramification of making a rule to auto reply a nasty image, or sending it to the the president of the company.
