Blocking a user doesn’t mean you won’t receive their email, but it will send their emails straight to your spam folder so that you don’t have to see it unless you want to. If you want to block someone in Gmail, here’s what you’ll need to do.
Step 1: Identify the account the Gmail account that you wish to bookmark.
Step 2: Use the following template to create the URL:
Replace email@example.com with your Gmail email address.
Step 3: Create a new bookmark using this URL.
So you need to go incognito and need to nuke your Gmail Account… If so, there are factors to consider and hoops to jump through; BUT, if you must, follow the source link to Help Desk Geek to get the low down. One thing that is pointed out is that you can delete your Gmail account and still keep your Google account; which is very important, especially if that account is linked to or associated with other web accounts.

Two factor authentication is normally set up with a phone number. When you sign in to an account secured with 2FA, a code is sent to your phone and the code needs to be entered on the sign in page in order to get into the account. The only problem is that if someone really wants to get into your account, a phone number isn’t the best tool to use to secure it. You can use alternative methods for 2FA. If you’re using it for Gmail, you can use the Google Authenticator app. Here’s how to set it up for a Gmail account.
Gmail’s search is getting a significant update that will allow users to more easily narrow results to help them find a specific email. Before today, users could type in search filters by hand (e.g. label:work, has:attachment, from:firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.) or use the drop-down box to perform an advanced search. But these options were less obvious, cumbersome and therefore under-utilized by many Gmail users. With the upgraded version of Gmail search, new filters — which Google calls “search chips” — will appear directly below the search box for simple, one-click access.
You can add forwarding to an email account where every email that is sent to a particular account is automatically sent to a different one. This applies to all emails however if you want to automatically forward messages from a specific address, but not all of them, Gmail has a built-in tool for the job.
