Stopping spam emails in Gmail by pattern

I have a good number of email addresses (around 200) which are spamming me to no end.

Can I make a black list and not receive any mails from these addresses?

Essentially I want a feature similar to Reject List on my phone. If I add a number to my reject list, all the calls and message from that number with be rejected.

Filters don't allow 200 emails at a time; please don't suggest that.

Sorry, but Filters are the only way to directly affect incoming messages in Gmail. Google Operating System devised a way to do it without too much pain. Your other options are to use something besides Gmail. –  Al E. Sep 15 '12 at 19:26

Well, from I know, the best you can do is create a filter (in the arrow next to the Reply button, click in "Filter" or something alike), so every new message from the spammer will go to that folder, and also deleted, if you choose.

Here and here you have some tutorials.

Block a Sender in Gmail [1]

To have Gmail send messages from a specific sender to the Trash automatically:

  • Follow the Create a filter link (at the top of any Gmail mailbox, near the search buttons).
  • Type the desired email address under From:.
  • You can block an entire domain by entering just that. To block all mail from both user-a@example.com and user-b@example.com, type "@example.com".
  • To block more than one address, separate them with "|" (the vertical bar; typically above the backslash on the keyboard; not including the quotation marks). You can block both user-a@example.com and user-b@example.com by typing "user-a@example.com|user-b@example.com", for example.
  • Click Next Step ».
  • Make sure Delete it is checked under Choose action.
  • Click Create Filter.
  • Check Also apply filter to __ conversations below to delete previously received messages.

To archive and label instead of delete messages, choose Skip the Inbox (Archive it) and Apply the label: under Choose action when setting up the filter.

Keep marking it as spam. Over a period, Google will deliver such messages to spam folder, especially if those are identified as spam by others as well.

Not an efficient way. I have marked it as spam a lot of times in vain. Please refer This thread –  Abhijith Sep 16 '12 at 10:03
