1. To block your desktop email apps from connecting to the internet, select Block Email Clients. You will be able to open your email app during your block sessions, but you will not be able to receive or send emails while this setting is checked.

Note: some older chat apps such as IRC and Jabber will also be blocked from connecting to the internet while this setting is checked.

2. To block your email app from being opened at all, use Mac Desktop App Blocking to block your email client. Only open and active apps will populate in your "Manage Blocked Desktop Apps" list. If the email client you want to block doesn't appear, just open the app and it will appear. Note: To quit blocked apps instead of hiding them, select Kill Blocked Apps here:

3. To block access to email via the browser, you will need to add your email provider's URL to your website blocklist. For more information on adding websites to your blocklist, please see Adding custom websites to a blocklist.
