I blocked someone from my Yahoo e-mail tonight.

My question is ... what will they see if they try to e-mail me? Do they see a pop-up saying they are blocked? Or does the e-mail just fail without explanation?

Anyone know?

According to Yahoo Mail Help,

"If you don't want to receive email from a certain email address or domain, you can block it in Yahoo! Mail. Incoming mail from Blocked Addresses is automatically deleted and doesn't bounce back to the sender."

That's a surprise. You'd think they'd want the sender to know, but in the case of the person I blocked, this is more diabolically fun.
