How do I refuse or return email to a specific sender in Outlook?

I would like to return or even refuse email from one specific person. I use
Outlook and wonder if I can mark "return to sender" email that has already
been read or not. Any help would be appreciated since receiving mail from
this person is annoying and I would like to make it clear that it needs to
stop.

Just tell them to stop and then create a rule in outlook to delete mail from
this person, should they choose to ignore your request. While you could
create a rule to reply, it makes you as big as spammer as the other
person... so just delete it and go on. If your mail server lets you create
rules, do it on the server.

You could use 'Block Sender'
Select 'Tools' > select > 'Junk E-mail' > select 'Add Sender to Blocked
Senders List'
Messages from the sender will not be blocked from appearing, mail is just
returned
