We know that there are cases where you may need to blacklist some emails given that they contain sensitive information. Whether it is for security reasons, privacy policies or if they contain confidential information you can blacklist them on FreeAgent CRM.
The blacklist exists at an individual level, which means that any email address you add to the list will be blocked from your profile only. Your team members will keep receiving those emails if they don't blacklist them too.
The email addresses that belong to your team members, including both the one they use to sign in and the ones they have paired, are automatically blacklisted.
Edition Qualifier: This feature is available in all FreeAgent Editions.

This feature is available for all users in FreeAgent CRM.

Open the menu and navigate to Settings > Email Blacklist. You can also use the search function and start typing 'Email Blacklist' to get there faster.
Now click the 'Add' button. Enter the email address you want to blacklist and then click the 'Save' button.
From this moment on, the emails coming from the addresses in the blacklist are not going to be synchronized to FreeAgent CRM.
