Why can't I block these emails when I mark these emails with "JUNK" (Report spam) every day. :|
Every day I mark them as SPAM and they arrive again?

Is there an option a little stronger than JUNK?

The junk mail controls only run on new mail in the inbox (AFAIK). So marking messages in your sent folder as junk in Thunderbird doesn't help. However, you can run message filters on any folder, manually. A message filter can delete (or move) a message that meets certain criteria such as who it was sent to.

You said "because it is through my email that pictures are sent to their private emails." and "They just want to send pictures via my email so I can view their pictures and they can also get them on their emails." Would creating a filter that deletes any messages that didn't include you as a recipient be a workaround? If that works you just need to manually run that filter. You only need to create the filter once.

You mentioned a code that you got from Google. What is the name that Google used to describe this code? Where did you find out this existed? I'm confused because its not a password and I don't think its a backup code for gmail two step verification because after they're used they become inactive.

That's the pass. from that email. You have the email above and its pass. used by all their camera hunters.


I have a master pass. (from that email) where I have more options ... just that I don't have the ability to block unnecessary emails hehee :)
------------------
I just don't know how to make a filter?
Does it have any videos or pictures how to filter for specific emails! And is it worth it because the emails arrive in SENT not in INBOX !

I never heard of Gmail (or G Suite) supporting a master password. A quick google search finds nothing about it. How/where did you learn about it?

Are you using a normal Gmail account, or one that is provided by your ISP (which implies how its managed might be modified)?

A year ago, I asked Google if they had the ability to open an account in Gmail where more people could use that account ... but I could be the master and I could delete their mails ... Of course I have my password (no one else knows my password) and I shared with the others the password Google gave me (those digits) ... it's not a problem it can do so, it works fine with no error.

But the only thing that bothers me is that I can and have access to forbid certain emails from sending through my account (because other hunters have found out my googled passport and use it for their cameras). I'll try if I manage with the filters that a previous colleague here gave me.

If you have any other ideas or have any options ... post here on this very good forum.

Can you tell me if I make a filter well?
Here I write the email I want to block.

here I do not know what to tick so that it can no longer be sent through my account! Or send him if he wants, but I wish to no longer receive his report via my SENT! ?

This is what my filter looks like! I do not know if I will succeed? If I need to do something different let me know here.
