What happens when you block someone in Yahoo?

Once you block someone, you won't get any emails from them. And they won't be notified that they are being blocked. However, they may still tell if their email has been blocked. When a person in your blocked list sends you an email, he/she may get an alert saying that the email was undeliverable or that there was a server error.
