Deleting contacts from your end will not prevent anything from being received by your email. The sender still has your address and can send whatever they want.  As for blocking, that can be complicated depending on who/what is sending the email to you and what you are using to read / access the email.

 

1) Is the source of the email a person or is it a spammer?

2) What email are you using? Telus webmail? Outlook/Windows Mail? Hotmail/Live/Outlook.com? Gmail? Other?

 

If you're getting spam or generally unwanted messages, most methods of accessing or reading your email have an option to report the message / sender as spam.  This may take multiple tries before it finally sticks, assuming the spammer doesn't send from multiple email addresses or fakes the sender's email / information that you see.

Further to @Nighthawk comment, if you block such email from your computer, it would also not show up on your mobile device. It is often easier to add an email to a spam or junk list from the computer interface than the mobile one.

Why can that email still be coming through when it deleted from my contacts?

Unless you specifically mark an email address as junk or spam in your email program, mail from that address will appear in your inbox.

Anyone with your phone number can text you. Anyone with your email address can email you. Anyone with your mailing address can send you letter mail.

Email and texts can be specifically blocked, but not simply by removing them from your contacts list.
