Wrong forum.
What would be the right discussion forum to post a question about email then? If this is the wrong forum, the closest I see might be the "off topic" forum.
I've got a question about email providers that I would like to post somewhere.

You can't exactly block replies to an email. What you could do is set up a filter. Choose one reply as an example, select More Actions, then Filter Emails Like This, select the Subject line to recognize the emails to block, Action: send to Trash.

Big corporations have emails that are one-way only and have that footnote saying "this email does not take replies". Does that not exist for consumer accounts?

(btw sorry for posting in the wrong section, I was almost positive I had posted in Computers)
Thanks

That's a different question.

When you create your own POP email account, you can usually specify the "Reply To" address, and it can be anything you want, including a fake address like "do-not-reply@blackhole.space".

But web mail like Yahoo may not offer a separate "Reply To" setting, and indeed it doesn't appear that Yahoo does. They do let you create one-time use disposable email addresses though (a recent addition to Yahoo Mail).

You originally asked "how do I block replies", not "How do I block all incoming e-mails.

To block (most) replies, just setup a filter; if subject has RE: in it, move to trash
To block everything, just setup a filter; where recipient is <your e-mail address>, move to trash. You could even set one up that is "where recipient ISN'T me, move to trash" ... that'll encompass everything. You might even be able to set something super generic like "move all incoming e-mail to trash"
One who is offended by truth, has no place among those who seek wisdom.

Some providers allow you to change the reply to address. Just setup an address that will automatically bounce the email.

I hope your intention for this is not to send SPAM
