I (and who knows how many other lucky people) received a wonderful offer today for 5000 words due in 24 hours for the magical rate of US$ 0.03/word. Naturally I would like to block these jokers from sending further golden job opportunities but there is no option visible for doing so. In the past, there was an option for blocking the IPS address of mail sent via Proz.com. Now all I see is this:
from: xxx via proz.com
to: "ProZ.com Member"

Thanks in advance.

Block lists Dec 20, 2018

My block lists are under the Settings tab in my profile. Select Email preferences in the tab to the left.

You can also reach the same settings by using the link in the email:

Proz seems to have removed the direct link to block the sender.

That worked. I was able to block the domain name -no IPS address was given. Your help is really valuable and it's interesting that you seem to confirm that Proz no longer offers the option directly from the e-mail.
Mange tak!
