Can I reject specific emails? I don't want to just block the address. I want to reject a specific email address and have a rejection notification automatically sent.

edit and mention which email service you're using. Flag for reopening once done –  Sathya Apr 26 '13 at 3:25

@Sathya: It is a bit harsh closing a question that just needs a bit of clarification; particularly one that has been asked by a new user. It is tagged google, so I would assume gmail - and that would seem to be the only clarification required? –  w3d Apr 26 '13 at 8:09

@w3d going by past experience, that assumption would be wrong, but fair enough. –  Sathya Apr 26 '13 at 8:15

According to Google Support as of March 2013:

Blocking mail from certain senders
you can't currently block messages from specific addresses or domains This means that, as your email provider, gmail does not currently support blacklisting, which would allow for an error message to be sent to the sender saying that the message had been refused.

You can, however, simulate such a message and delete the email using filters with canned responses, but this will not stop emails from the originating address from ever entering your system.
