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.
re I can report people sending me ****** explicit Emails . pleaaaaaase help me to block them
I need help I am getting spam hundreds of ****** explicit solicitation. Can you help me to stop it
Why do I keep getting spam from these guys and it is not even addressed to my e-mail, even filters don't work and I keep receiving them, and why do I need to jump through hoops to get my e-mail to function properly, but these guys send millions upon millions of e-mails a day. yahoo get your head out of your *** and fix this problem, tired of all the **** spam.

I agree on the spam. What's worse is that important emails are not readily available due to some blockage. I'm sure that the sleazy scumbags that send the spam are paying Yahoo under the table. That's why Yahoo is free.
I am now getting more spam than ever. about 300/day.
I agree with being able to block spam
If you don't want to get spam don't use yahoo.
I already have a different email account, no more spam.
Yahoo already sucks for years, free, yes but that's about its.
You could also think about 33mail and make aliases, make a new
alias for each and every site you subscribe to, when you get spam you
can really block the sender.
******* yahoo i told you to block these ******* spam mail

Is NOT working and I have experience at using such features. Very frustrating and a waste of time so far!
I agree the spam epidemic is BS. I'm sick of seeing spam. I send it all to the trash bin and then select "not my mail" and "spam". I do this 10 times for each in hopes of flooding Yahoo with this garbage hoping that they get the message.
Yahoo i said stop this ******* spam mail ******** i'm going to sue you all if it don't stop nothing but ******* scams to get your info stupid ***

Over Thanksgiving I had 486 spam emails and get up to 100 or more a day. PLEASE MAKE A WAY SO THAT IF I DONT HAVE THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS THAT THEY CAN NOT SEND ME EMAILS.
I agree, this is pointless to go through all the blocking if it doesn't actually keep it from coming to my email. I am getting thousands of spam email....and no...that is not an exaggeration!
Yahoo i said block these ******* spam mail 16 more ******* tired of it hardhead
Yahoo 10 more spam i said block the mother *******
Yahoo can you not get the ******* drift i don't want these ******* spam mail ************* and nosy ******* between you and google
What is the point of showing a BLOCK option that does not block? I do not want emails in spam or inbox that I BLOCK!!!!! I agree with Gordon that since I have tried to use BLOCK, my spam emails have only gotten worse. PLEASE correct this so that it actually does what all of us want! Other emails can do it, so can you!

My feelings are the same.New block feature should block emails senders from both inbox and spam folder. I don't want these people to send me mail at all. Come on Yahoo. You know what we wanted in a block feature. Help us really beat spam.
The list of spam mails increase as I block more emails. Also, the spam mail block features don't seems to work. After blocking these spam mails, the tick boxes for both 'block' and 'delete mails' are suppose to be effective. I think this is only a cosmetic giving a sense of falsehood. This DOESN'T WORK AT ALL.
Yahoo enough is enough over this ******* spam now u stop the ************* no ******* sense in it
