How to block an email with Spike

Because Spike is made to improve your productivity, the app has 2 inboxes. It puts the most important stuff at the front in “Priority” and places the other not-so-important stuff like newsletters and promotions in “Other” so you can easily see what matters most while you work. But sometimes we get emails that we no longer want to see, so we’ve make blocking and unsubscribing a piece of cake! 

 

Mobile:

To block an unknown sender:
If you’ve received an email from an unknown sender or someone you don’t want to keep in touch with ever again, just swipe the thread to the left and tap ‘More’ (the fun orange-colored one).
