    Hi, this is really not the right place for this! But if you are looking for an e-mail anti-spam/blocking tool, then try Mail Washer Pro:

    Bounce his mail few times and he'll thought that your mail account is not active anymore.

    my suggestion is to add the persons email address to the blocked address list, or create a filter to send his email to the trash. if u dont know how to do this, consult the yahoo help desk

    Report him as a spam sender to yahoo! That'll shut him up.
    "Mark message as spam" option in web interface should help.

    If you use MSN hotmail, you can report junk-email easily:

    I know this is not what you asked, however, if you want to shut him up, warn him that you will give him negative feedback with E-bay. Sellers on Ebay depend on high positive ratings. I doubt very much that Ebay's policy allows for abusing the confidential information that is given in good faith so that a business transaction can take place. Surely there are Terms Of Service. You may wish to review Ebays TOS and see if you have any recourse through them.

    one additional comment. as someone that used to get very angry over stuff like that (email/privacy abuse) I became a much happier person when I finally realized...It takes but a second to delete mail without reading it. Just hightlight and click delete. Frankly, i don't even report them as spam anymore. I just don't care. let them write. it doesn't bother me. the fact that sender can often tell if a message was deleted without having been opened makes it just that much more satisfying.

    I don't even want to read them. Creating a pre-download filter to delete automatically messages with blank subjects (my friends are warned :D ) or a certain email address/domain/subject/header from my server.
    For the rest all is taken care off through my Bayesian filter.:cool:

    Nope, I wish I did. :doubt:
    All features are available in my email client. :) Have a look at the International Society for Bayesian Analysis.
    Indeed it's very popular to combat spam/junkmail and for me it's working like a charm.:D
