What kind of messaging system are we talking about? If it's Skype, Microsoft removed that functionality when they bought the software.

I'm assuming that this is a DIY messaging service you've got set up? If so, set up an Ignore table with the following structure:

Ignore Table

id (user_id doing the ignoring)
ignore_id (user to be ignored)

Have a composite PK on the first two fields which are of course both FKs of your user table PK. This way any message sent from the ignore_id user will be checked against the Ignore table data before being delivered to the messages table. If a record is found in the Ignore table, then inform the user that his/her message has been blocked and halt the messaging process.

brilliant ill have a look at that and ty very much :)
