You can do that easily you first open your Chat/IM then right click on the person name in your chat list and then you will find options click on Block then you will receive a message saying “ After blocking [email protected] , you won’t be able talk to this person until you remove them from your blocked list in settings.

You will always appear as offline on their contact list. ” By this way you can stop him sending messages to you.

Hello Charmaine, 

It would have been more easy to answer if you had mentioned the name of IM software you are using but more or less same procedure apply to most of them. If you have accepted someone already, you can adopt different ways to prevent him from talking to you. If you do not intend to block him permanently, you can set your status to busy. It is a common courtesy not to bother people with busy status.

If that does not prevent him from bothering you, you can set an invisible status to hide from that person. As a last step you can block him. It would  stop him from knowing that you are online. If you don't intend to ever talk to him, you can block and delete him from the list of your contacts.

I hope that was helpful.

Abe.

Hi Charmaine,

What IM are you using?

  1. For Yahoo Messenger, right-click on the contact. You should find "Stealth Settings" there, and choose "appear permanently appear offline" so that he/she can no longer see you online (unless you choose "appear online" to that contact again). "Appear offline" however, means that you will be offline in just that certain period of time and will be online again to the contact when you sign in.
  2. For Skype, right click the contact then check “block”. This will make you permanently offline to the contact.
  3. For Windows Live Messenger, right click on the contact then choose “appear offline to this person. ”

Hope these help.
