If he/she is directly mailing you then you can use the account settings in your email account to block that particular email address.
If it is through contact option on HubPages then turn off the settings to receive personal messages from HubPages.
I tried - I don't see how. The only option I see is to eliminate all emails. I'm looking under my profile setting. Also, now that person has my email address so I don't see how to stop it. The person won't stop sending emails even though I have asked him to.
If you are using Gmail then when you mark a email as 'spam' then a option comes to block the email id too. This way you will not receive emails from that particular email address.
Similarly, there is option to block email in Yahoo too but it is a little complex.
sorry to hear this..but i have not heard of harrasing here at hubpages..its otherwise a very friendly place...
forward the mail to email@example.com I guess.
I just did - he would not stop after several requests to stop emailing me (he sent me messages from HubPages after arguing with me on HubPages and I closed my questions).
Just tell HP. They'll look at the log and ban the hubber. No reason to turn off the contact feature.
Thanks for the tips! This is a stalker who is harassing me, insisting on pushing the Koran and his beliefs about Allah on me.
At the bottom of emails sent through Hubpages you can report it as abuse. If it's not through Hubpages you can forward the email to admin.
If not through hubpages, a report to abuse@theirISP.whatever will often do the trick, like lose them their email account!
@hotmail or @yahoo or @lineone or whoever their email provider is.
This really is very simple, just block their address on your email inbox page, it saves complicating things. You might even find this option in your 'tools' menu at the top of the screen, but I can't be sure as I am on Yahoo. On there I simply go into 'options' (on the page itself) and then 'mail options' and then 'blocked addresses' and then add the offending email address to the box that appears and hit the '+' key. Job done. You probably have a similar option on your email server.
Look at the very bottom of any email he sent to you using the contact form on HP. You will see it offers you the option to report the email as 'abuse' by clicking on the link. They should act on this. If you made the mistake of emailing him back then he now has your private email address which is a problem. However most email accounts have the option to 'block' email addresses, so all you need to do is find the option on your particular email inbox page and add his address to the 'blocked senders list'.
After you report it, block or filter them. No matter what service you use it will have that ability and now is as good a time as any to learn how to use it.

I've enjoyed it here, there are some great hubbers. The problems just aren't worth the benefits anymore.Hubs are staying, but that is it. I don't need this stuff: http://hubpages.com/hub/A-Day-in-the-Life-of-ryankettAnd I most certainly don't need this crap (again):...

I have been harassed by hubpages for quite awhile. Some of my Hubs have been controversial and I think they are trying to get me kicked out, but they are accusing me of duplicate copy, which is totally untrue. I write all my own articles. I do research but never ever do I copy and paste in my...

Has anyone received hateful or derogatory email from another hubber? What did you do? I woke up with one this morning, while it is perfectly just to disagree with one's view on a subject, I don't believe it needed to be taken as far as "this hubber" did. Yes, I reported it to...

I received an e.mail (in my personal e.mail account, which is the e.mail address I have listed with HubPages. It starts with "Hey" and then gives a blurb about - of all things - ovarian cysts. It does end the e.mail with "just visit us at ovariancystatoz.com". ...
