  • You can block someone on Hangouts, but I don't know if this would block them on Gmail as well. Also, this doesn't appear to be the best place to ask that question. – Michael Armes Oct 24 '16 at 17:00

From https://support.google.com/mail/answer/8151:

Block unwanted emails

If you’re getting emails you don’t want in your inbox, you can block the sender, unsubscribe from the sender, or report the message depending on the type of email. Emails from senders you block will be sent to your spam folder.

To block a sender in GMail:

  1. Open the email.
  2. At the top right of the email, click the down arrow.
  3. Click Block [sender].

If you blocked someone by mistake, you can unblock them using the same steps.
