It's not clear what you wish to achieve. Squirrelmail runs on an Exetel computer as a server-side script, not on yours, and can only be installed or configured at that end. It has a browser interface for remotely sending and retrieving messages, and it is possible to set this up to isolate some incoming messages into a specific folder structure. See the filter browser option. It won't reject them.

Do you wish to block someone who is sending on your account, or someone who is sending you unwanted messages? For the first you can change the password; for the latter case, your email client spam filter can take care of it with a suitable rule. If the messages are of a criminal nature it would be a good idea to write to Exetel.

[edit] I think you are referring to the Block Sender tarball. This modifies Squirrelmail itself, and would need to be installed by Exetel.

Hi and thanks for your replies.
I want to block someone who sends me emails every now and then, its nothing criminal in nature, it is just a blog from a TV station which I registered long time ago and have asked them so many times to unregister my email address from their database but they simply ignore my messages or simply don't see them. The weird thing thing is you can easily register with them but somehow there is no link to unsubscribe, so I have decided to block this particular email address. I want to stop messages at the exetel server level so they wont reach my mobile phone and outlook.

I have changed some of the message filtering OPTIONS as follows:

Options - Message Filtering

What to Scan:
[New] - [Done]

Match: FROM
Contains: Here, Should add the email address WITH or WITHOUT ("")???? like this "xxxx@xxxx.com" OR just xxxx@xxxx.com :?:
Move to: TRASH

Hi,

I've checked with our sys admins and it appears that additional plugins cannot be installed for the Exetel web mail and only the standard set is available there.
