I will personally recommend not to use the “Block Sender” extension at all. It allows only 5 blocks. Once you use 5 blocks (email address), it asks you for a paid version. And it’s not worth at all as the same service is freely available from google. Please check the below image.

You can opt for any of the first two methods. Both are good and easy to process. Although, If you ask me, I will suggest filtering one. It directly sends junk emails to the trash and its time-saving factor in today’s world where everyone is counting on seconds.
