I keep getting email sent to similar email addresses as mine. for example, if my email address is: [email protected], I also get emails addressed to [email protected]. This j.frank email is not associated with my email address, so I cannot remove the association.

How can I block these type emails?

Gmail ignores dots in email addresses, [email protected] is the same as [email protected] is the same as [email protected].

It would seem that someone registered for something and put in the wrong address. Unless you can get the sender to stop sending it, your only option is to create a filter on that variant that'll automatically delete those messages. (This assumes, of course, that you'd never want to use that address variant yourself.)
