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.

Why have an option if we can not use it. Block feature does nothing but take up space.
Why doesn't the new Block feature block emails from my spam. I don't want these people to be able to send me mail at all
Block feature doesn't work for me either

Yes yahoo there is no sense getting 100 some spam mail the block don't work and i never seen such fake emails i ever seen just get stuff to you . You need to stop it not us
I am soon tired of obscene emails. 110 so far this morning. I am ready to delete my yahoo email account!
I am not concerned with regular emails but the SPAM obscenity is getting out of hand. No wonder our country is going to the dogs!
So far your "HELP" is of no use what so ever! You could do better.
Apparently Yahoo has different levels of spam rejection for regular users and their ATT.net mail users (both YAHOO). Att.net seems to have much less spam.
The BLOCK feature is ****, useless...still getting the SAME spam e-mail after blocking them many times!!!!!!!!!

What's the point of banning spam e-mail addresses if Yahoo can't even filter them out. I've spent a lot of time copying the root e-mail addresses of the spam messages so that I don't see them even in my spam folder, yet the -emails keep popping-up. I understand that they go directly to Spam folders, but I don't even want them there. I want the spam folder empty, and in case there's one or two e-mail there, I check it just to make sure that they're not spam, but it's the same spam that I've already blocked or banned. Seriously.
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.
