How to Stop eBay Email Notifications Using Your Email Service Tools?

Depending on which email service you are using, you probably have an option to block specific senders and send those emails to spam, as well as to report spam emails. If spamming escalates, you can also report email harassment or email abuse

Most services give you an option to:

  • Permanently block an email address—when you block a sender, messages they send will go to your spam folder
  • Unsubscribe from mass emails—at the bottom of the message, with legitimate emails, there should have the Unsubscribe or Change preferences link
  • Report spam or suspicious messages—when you mark email as spam, it will go to your spam folder, as well as all future emails from that sender
  • Stop phishing emails—these are emails asking for personal information, and you can report them and block the sender
