How to Block iMessage Senders in Messages for Mac OS X

Are you receiving iMessages from random people? Or from people you are trying to ignore? Use the blocking option in your Mac OS X to stop iMessages from coming in. The process is pretty easy.

Messages in Mac OS X is the client that supports all kinds of messaging like iMessage, Facebook, Chat and AIM. And iMessage is a popular platform to send messages across different Macs, iPads or iPhones. Note that this feature will block people from sending you iMessages completely (although undo-able). By “completely” we mean that you won’t be receiving iMessages from the blocked people on your Mac and your other devices that have iMessage.
