Improve the Block function
The block function should not take two (or three) steps to complete.
If you select "block" for a specific e-mail or spam communication, it should block it and not allow anything further from that domain.
Why have the users to send future e-mails from the sender into the spam folder when they should be blocked fully?
If the blocking function is supposed to block unwanted messages, then let it do it's job as (I'm assuming here) it's supposed to do?
Why would I (or anyone else for that matter) want to continue to receive anything that has been flagged as spam at all?
(Being flagged as spam sends it to the spam inbox...)
Not only that, your system is sending absolutely good e-mails into the spam inbox.
Once a message is sent to the spam inbox and the user blocks it, there should be no more messages of that sort being received by the user.
Please make this option work properly or remove it altogether...we're probably receiving this sort of mail because there's an inbox for it.
If Yahoo will not improve the BLOCK feature, why not have an ALLOW feature.
Create an initial list from my contacts. Then let me add email addresses to the ALLOW list as when
I have a new contact.
"Thank you for your feedback. We will improve the 'Block' function immediately." -- Yahoo, in the year 3018.
It is hard enough for us to block email address but to limit the number we can block is foolish!

How about allowing you to block spammers to begin with?
I stand corrected!!!
This thread was started TWO years ago and there is still NO solution!!!
Yahoo, it's time to grasp your head firmly and pull it out of your behind!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SOLVE THIS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even Trump managed to solve a problem the other day by working with the Dems so let's see you get this one solved no matter who you have to work with!!!
You have been 'gathering feedback' on this issue for over a year. When can we expect to see results?
You guys seem as ineffective as Trump's White House as far as solving problems go.
I'm sick and tired of getting **** from Candian Pharmcy, which is actually in Russia. Been going on for years.
It's so obvious that no one from Yahoo! takes a blind bit of notice of what users think about blocking emails. Why don't we have allow email addresses so we can only receive email from addresses we choose ? All that spam blocking wouldn't be needed, even if it did work !
Blocking emails is a useless function that does not work
Block is not working at header level as if you select one or multiple emails and go to ...more - block - tick both options it won't do anything.
This option should be working or disabled.
Please check the block feature - it does not appear to work when I right click. The emails do not delete or appear in blocked list. I do not notice the huge amounts of spam on other email provider sites.
Your block email address doesn't function at all. After hitting the OK button, the spam message remains where it is. Very disappointing experience. I have kinda keep the old stuff goes on, like I still keep using your email service even it's terrible. But I really hope you can work on it. Thank you.
To reduce the spam coming in,each spam message should be reported to the
Federal Trade Commission with a copy of the email header at email@example.com
If there is too much to report,do 5 to 10 reports a day.
An example below on how to report spam messages,if there is a link or phone number in the spam message include it in the report.
Subject:Spam:[paste subject of spam email] or Unwanted Spam Message.
Above link found in spam email.

Why does Yahoo even bother with Feedback? They never to do anything about the complaints!

I am likewise leaving Yahoo if this issue is not resolved sooner rather than later. I never used to get 10-40 spam emails daily. This is in addition to the hundreds going into my spam folder. There are far too many good providers out there to tolerate this issue.
I am still annoyed by unsolicited emails (dental cleaning, fitness offers, etc...).
I usually send these emails into the spam box because blocking them would require to fumble into the settings, and then retyping the unsolicited email addresses, which is time consuming.
Would you consider adding a "block" button into the reading panel or on the menu, next to "archive, move, delete..."?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
I need to be able to ban addresses, not just send them to spam, and that option is probably the only reason I stay with Yahoo while it has been working poorly in many other areas. Please fix it!
It appears "blocking" to Yahoo means sending it to the spam folder. Blocking should mean it never gets past Yahoo's security and we never see it, not that all that garbage still goes into our spam folder and we have to get rid of it 20 times a day. Yahoo needs to catch up to what's happening and start truly blocking obvious spam. And Yahoo should be providing a much more efficient way to "ban" not "block" spam than having to enter one long email address at a time. We should be able to enter "***" to cover any name, followed by the address we wish to block, the .com part. There is too large a flood of spam coming from the same source with a different name. Yahoo is absolutely deficient, inadequate in dealing with this. Please dedicate substantial resources,make a sincere effort to get ahead of this.
Here's an idea: When I use the BLOCK option, have the BLOCK option actually work?
I use the BLOCK option, frequently, and I keep getting the EXACT same emails all the time.

Gathering feedback for over a month now? Yahoo stop looking and start doing!
