    You can't do it from the iPad. You'll have to go to the website version of your email accounts and do it there. I don't have an account with either of your email providers so I can't give advice on how it works for your accounts.

    Welcome to the iPad forums, the largest and best iPad forum anywhere, with over 297,000 members worldwide. Many of our membership volunteer their time to help their fellow members with answers to their questions and solutions to their problems. If a search of the forums doesn't provide the answer you need, don't hesitate to post your question in the appropriate forum.

    We also have this tutorial to help you get full use from the iPad forums app.iPad Forums App Tutorial
    We ask that all members take the time to review the Forum rules before posting.

    Block an email address from Gmail:

    On your computer, login to your Gmail account.

    There is a search box at the top of the page. Click the arrow there.
    A window will appear.
    In "From" enter the email address you want to block.
    Click "Create filter with this search" at the bottom of this search window.
    The next window will open, where you may choose whatever you prefer (one of the options is "Delete").
    Then click "Create Filter".

    For Hotmail:


    Sign in (on your computer).
    Then choose Options - More options. You should find that in the upper right corner.
    There you will find "Preventing junk email". Click "Safe and blocked senders".
    Choose "Blocked senders".
    Write the email address you want to block in "Blocked email address or domain".
    Click "Add to list".

    I hope that will help.
