Not possible unless you are running your own mail server.

It also won't be of any use blocking a specific IP unless the other person has a static IP address.

Wouldn't it be easier to add the email address to spam list of your email client or security software.

It would, but sometimes the email address can change/be spoofed. By blocking an IP address it doesn't matter on the senders "claimed" email address. It is however the only tool we have from yahoo/google, MSN, to block emails.
