I don't know for sure but I would imagine they would get messages back telling them the email couldn't be delivered. If they didn't get any messages they would start to wonder why you weren't replying to them I expect.

Those are my thoughts on the question whether or not my answer is true I don't know.

depends on your mail provider

Yahoo mail for example will not notified the user if their email have been blocked or not. They can send their email to you like nothing happened but their email won't be delivered to your account

the blocked user mail will be deleted before arriving in your inbox

It depends on many things:
Your email client/program
Your email provider
Sender's email provider
Intermediary provider/email forwarder
Method used to block - including spam blocker
By "intermediary provider/email forwarder", I mean something like GMail. For example, I use my gmail address the most. But I have it set up so it forwards all my email to my ISP's email address, which then is pulled down to my computer by my email client, MS Outlook. Plus I have MailWasher Pro in the middle checking for spam.

I can configure a rule so GMail dumps all email from a specific address into a spam folder. It will then not get forwarded to me, and the sender will not know if I got it or not.

I can also configure my spam blocker, MailWasher Pro, to automatically delete their mail too - and they will never know.

I guess I should add that I am talking about email over the Internet. If you are on a corporate network, and the email is from another person on the same corporate network, they will get a failed to deliver notice.
