Blocking Email Senders – the Device instead of the Email Address?

(My terminology here may lack a bit in accuracy.)

I am able to block senders from sending me email.

I can add their email address to a ‘blocked list’.

However this seems to be pointless.

Pointless because the senders easily disguise their

real email address and replace it with another one.

So is there a way to actually block that server or

computer from sending email to my email address?

(This refers to my home PC; not on a network.)

    Email does not contain the "device" that sends it, only the source. No point blocking your own mail servers, that would block all emails. Your email service is the only site that can block other sources or servers, you can't.

    just keep marking their messages as Spam. when enough get marked Spam, the IP is ttpically blacklisted. and even subsequent emails will start going DIRECTLY into your Spam folder.

    that's the best you can do when you are not running your own email server.
