A one click function to block email address
It should be easy to block email address. I don't know why this has not been implemented. Do you guys make money from it?
I don't want to have to go into settings. It's true spammers can just generate new email addresses, but at least that makes it slightly harder for them. And also an option to block their host.
Why not put a block option on our inbox and SPAM page. Others have done it why not yahoo.
Put a BLOCK button beside the emails coming into my spam!
please facilitate blocking a lot of spam emails with one single command, just like hotmail, i know you (Yahoo) have a good spam system, which filters spam emails in one place, but hotmail also do the same in junk folder and give the facility to block a large number of emails with one single command. Just an idea!
PLEASE give us a quick one-click button right on the email page so we can BLOCK a sender. Thanks
Is there a way to report what may be pornographic spam? Especially from doyouliketosurf.com. Blocking doesn't seem to work.
I am sick of having to change how I filter trash and spam. If I am trying to block a particular KIND of SPAM, I wish I could choose to NOT have SPAM of a following sort: ****** and dating. I am NOT looking for that, yet, that is what most SPAM coming my way is...
Yeah, the ads for free stuff, loans, ...can be burdensome, but it seems there should be a way to choose certain SPAM categories to BLOCK
I have my yahoo account for over a decade now and it receive LOADs of spam. So I would really appreciate if there was an easier way to block unwanted addresses other than - opening each email, copying the addresses, going to settings etc... Including "block sender" option when right clicking the email would be great. Thank you.
I get hundreds of Spam e mails a day. It is impossible to block each one because more will appear. There has got to be an option available to permanently block these senders with a simple click. Instead of just deleting the hundreds of Spam messages a day how about blocking them as you delete them .
I would like to see a better blocking system on yahoo mail Something like outlook express has Thanks
OOOPS , I FORGOT I CAN PUT A NAGGING PERSON'S EMAIL INTO 'SPAM !! :)
ad block feature on PC and mobile feature. trying to block each address via the settings is very tedious. This seems like an easy fix.. I appreciate this domain where I can voice my request.
Add the BLOCK on the tool bar with the "reply," "forward," "delete," "move,","spam," & "more." Just to be able to BLOCK with one click would be nice. Thanks.
Please add "BLOCK" to SPAM drop down box!!! When I use "Settings" to block: "email address is invalid" pops up . ADD "BLOCK" option like Outlook Mail offers!. Almost every day for several months, I receive 15 to 25 emails from the same sender written in some Asian language. I've sent hundreds to SPAM. Please BLOCK them!!!
I understand, as per your form responses on other Spam Filter-related posts, that spam "is constantly changing." However, I am receiving emails from senders flagged as Spam on a daily basis. The fact that the filter is not registering these addresses to automatically go to Spam is frustrating and continues to indicate to me that Yahoo Mail is lagging behind other providers like Gmail and Hotmail/Outlook. I can see by the myriad other posters this is an issued encountered by many users. Please address it or offer other, actionable solutions other than simply contacting Customer Care.
Set up your mail page with a block sender like HOTMAIL HAS. I get so many nasty, junk etc e-mails it would take me forever to list them all plus it almost impossible to go to your site to list them, then type the address and even then not sure if I listed them correctly. I SAY AGAIN, JUST ADD A TAB THAT WILL BLOCK THE SENDER FOR ME. THANK YOU
Do not save every email address I use because when I email to Craigslist for buying and selling, it creates too many auto suggestions for people I do not know.
allow a way to automatically add spam addresses to the blocked address list instead of manually entering them. I recently had to enter 61 addresses and more keep coming. The 500 allowed may not be enough.
Please make it easier to block unwanted emails. I have requested the max 200 blocks and I still get those same emails.
When a SPAM e-mail address is put into the Block box, do not allow that address to get into my account, not into any box, not SPAM box, not TRASH box, not any place in my account.
Need to make the blocking function an easy task instead of having to type every IP address in why not allow us to high light and click block!
Create a block button to block addresses My blocked addresses don't block anyway if they are not on contact list why are they even making to the spam box??? None of the filters do any good Why doesn't Yahoo. really do something besides busy work? They are pretty vulgar and yet they just keep coming does not matter what filter one uses or address to block as they have many!
You have a spam button, I would like a block button, so I don't have to click to get the domain name and then click on setting and the privacy to add. It would reduce the number of spam if we could just block them.
Put a block button at the top to kill that Spam like Outlook does .
mail that i do not want keeps popping up in spam and my inbox, it would be nice to have a option to block that mails.
65 spams to 10 good emails. Yahoo needs to add BLOCK junk mail like Hotmail/Outlook has. Repeat spam emails also for the 65 spam emails.
So they are in my spam folder but why can't I get things that have sexually explicit titles blocked. I don't want it to even make it to my spam folder at all. Seriously, they aren't even sneaky, it's blatant.
Make it easier to block email addresses - it should be as easy as moving the mail from one area to another!
Put a block button at top like MSN
Please put easy feature access to block mails, i want to block all mails in my spam.
Why not have "one click" to block annoying spam. I do not like having to type in the "spam" abusers address in the "block" field! Get with it Yahoo! Take a look at how hotmail addresses this issue!
As a user, I want to be able to tell yahoo when reporting an email as being spam, to block all other emails form that domain as being spams
I want a one click solution to permanently blocking junk and advertising e-mail.
Children use our family e-mial address and someone has been sending ADULT advertisements to Children's accessible e mail addresses with Yahoo.
There has got to be a one click solution to all these unwanted and unsolicited e-mails that we all get on Yahoo..like a better spam filter and we already pay for a premium service to stop this stuff...So make it easier to stop it or we will all change to Google or someone else.
There should be an option to "BLOCK" directly from the email message itself. It should be available on EVERY email message correspondence! There should be a Block button on every email sent and/or received.
Also, there should be unlimited amount when it comes to blocking email addresses. There should be no limit to the amt of blocked addresses.
Also, the "SPAM" folder should have a feature similar to hotmail. The spam folder should have the option to permanently block an email address.
In the Spam folder include a provision that when an email is deleted it is automatically blocked. Also a provision to block a domain. I get emails from different names at HARDERARCHER or OPENSAUVORY, There are others but those are two of the most common. Time spent to modify email program to incorporate these provisions would be very helpful to us users and save us a lot of time in entering each address separately to block the address.
Hotmail allows for the BLOCKING of individual e-mails from spammers! Yahoo just has you mark them as spam and they are sent to the spam folder. That isn't enough! While you're making the interface pretty, please make it easier for us to BLOCK spam!
Would it be possible to put the block address in a drop down menu? Would like this option without opening mail to block address.
When deleting your mail in your spam folder, it should automatically go into your blocked addresses folder. Then you never to deal with again. You.ve made the choice not to receive this spam so then it should be permanently blocked. There are some people out there with hundreds of e-mail address who contact anyone with a yahoo address. Not sure how they do this but there must be millions of address they contact continuously.
I get email from the same source constantly, and it's not even addressed to me. At least in Outlook, I can block the sender and/or the IP address. With Yahoo, it just keeps going in my Spam folder. I get almost one of these emails daily, if not more often.
Have a feature to adequately "BLOCK" unwanted spam. DO NOT have an offer for a customer to pay $49.99 to block spam.
Can you add an automatic 'block' button to the Spam folder? Hotmail do this already and this means I get 1 spam email a week there, compared to 40 spam emails a DAY in my Yahoo.
I get way too much spam. You guys need to have an option, to block senders, above and beyond the 500. I have 500 blocked, already. The amount of spam that I receive is ridiculous, let alone the occasional ones that sneak in my inbox.
Years ago, Yahoo Mail had a simpler way to block senders by having it as an option in the drop-down menu (I think it was under More), so you didn't have to write down the address, go deep into your account settings, and manually enter it. This worked great for blocking spam further than just having it go to the spam folder.
Also, I would like you to bring back the option to delete Spam immediately, instead of having the minimum setting be one week in the spam folder.
Automatic block feature - too time consuming to keep entering individual address
selecting a message should give you the option to add it to your blocked senders list instead of having to manually enter it in the list most of the time you cant even figure out the address the message came from because yahoo has a bug that doesn't display the senders address.
Need a BLOCK button, next to the SPAM button, to BLOCK the numerous SPAM email addresses that arrive in my business mailbox daily with the press of a button, instead of the multiple steps that it takes to complete this task now. I would pay for this feature!
I get a lot of job emails from recruiters on late nights eve weekends anytime just to keep distracting me from doing whatever work or project I am currently assigned to and need this behavior from external entities to stop as per my convenience.
Please allow only known senders on the users allowed safe mailing list to send messages, all other unknown emails should go to spam folder and not to users inbox.
Also provide an option to block emails from unknown senders when needed.
In the main mail window, there should be an automatic button like the search, delete, and star icons to automatically add an address to the blocked sender list and simultaneously delete the message without having to open it or copy the email address. What a pain to go through so many steps to block a sender. And if you have to open the message, that may also flag your account to the bot that they can keep sending spam. I am getting SOOOOO much spam in my inbox on yahoo now that I'm considering switching email accounts.
right now I have to check each spam sender individually, right click to add filter then copy sender's address then close, then open settings, then block sender, then paste address and save. when you have 50 overnight no one has that kind of time to block them all. help us out.
Hotmail/outlook has a simple block for unwanted mail and spam. With all Yahoo can do why not just a simple BLOCK to not receive unwanted emails/spam.. Thank you
At least twice a week I am unable to access my mail due to some dumb technical glitch. As well, some scum of the earth piece of **** spammer has gotten my email address and I will get 5 messages with the same "sender" name and same subject, but from 5 different domains. And when you block those, more come in from a different address on the same domain. Typically in an 8-10 hour period I get over 100 spam messages on average. in 24 hours I can get more than 400. Most sexually explicit. I do not have time to go through your stupid process of going into settings and blocking each email one at a time. Especially when it doesn't make a difference. I have a filter set and the best it can do is send it to trash When it works. Which is about half assed. I really wish there was a one click way to block spam completely, not just send it to trash. Some messages I send to spam because they crowd my inbox but I still want the information they contain. So weeding through all the idiotic **** to get to relevant things is a massive headache for me. I have been with yahoo email for years, but unless some improvements are made, I am considering just abandoning this email and moving everything over to Gmail.
You need to come up with better and easier ways of blocking and filtering SPAM. Outlook does a pretty good job. Im set to exclusive. I tried to block something today and it said I exceeded 200. So now if I go in and start deleting "unused" blocks to install new ones who's to say the ones I just deleted wont come right back? I liken it to chasing ones tail. It seams that when you block something the sender changes it slightly and bam right back into my spam box. I should be able to simply select "block **** like this" and click bam gone. Do I just let my spam box explode? I erase daily. No I don't want black or asian dating, no I'm not married and lonely, no I don't want a degree from Florida or Kaplin university, no I don't want to here from TARA and her *** escapades! Enough. Please do something to ward off these parasites. If I want something Im certainly not gonna get it of some interweb scum.
I want a one click icon to block all un wanted e-mails without having to open them on a mobile device or go the junk folder and delete them...I want these un wanted senders blocked permanently with one click like moving other e mails to a new folder or added to the spam blocker with that one click icon to block this sender is un wanted...
As a company then you can block all these un wanted spam e mails for all your customers.
How the heck do you block email addresses? With hotmail you click the box next to the email, and there's a block option. With Yahoo, I cannot figure it out. I only have the option to delete the email which does nothing for me because I literally get 200 spam emails a day. I'll delete one, refresh the page, and there will be another one there. It's frustrating.
We need a BLOCK email/sender button so we can control who sends us spam or other unwanted trash mail. I don't want advertisements for prono garbage in my inbox. our inboxes are suppose to be private. Not an open dump box for businesses to have access too.
Your process to block email addresses is utterly cumbersome and possible dangerous since I have to open the email to get the spammers address. This leaves me wide open to hacking or viruses. Considering that Yahoo has the MOST spam of any email address I use, you need to have a simple, one-step method to block junk mail.
Please make a button where you can block SPAM all at once instead of having to enter each address.....I tried dozens of times to "unsubscribe" but that doesn't work! I will delete my account if I keep getting 100's of spam messages per day!
block all email addresses that are spam to prevent bs emails to be continually sent by the same or like person I get several emails per day by someone who wants to **** a milf and this is *********** at its finest that needs to be permanently blocked
DEAR SIR/MS, YOUR COMPETITOR OUTLOOK HAS A FUNCTION AT THE TOP OF THE EMAIL BAR: WITH "MOVE" AND "DELETE" WE NOW CAN DO AND "BLOCK." UPGRADE YOUR PAGE SO WE CAN DO SO NOW, FOR LIFE WILL SO MUCH BETTER FOR ALL OF US AND WE ARE HAPPY. PUT "BLOCK" ON THE TOP BAR NOW WITH ALL THE OTHER FUNCTIONS. HCOOPER
Block option for spam mail - hotmail offers option to block spam -
direct blocking person option on email drop down menu (Move)
Add a "Block" button for each email; current process is way too cumbersome. And it is important to let the sender know they have been blocked to thwart such activity
I want to block the mountains of disgusting, ******, ***** spam. I don't want to see it - even in my Spam folder. But, I don't want to click on the email to get the email address so I can block it. Give me an easy blocking option or I'm leaving Yahoo. (Really - Yahoo should do this, I shouldn't have to see this junk at all)
I have over 500 blocked spam. They just change there address. There has to be a way for you to just remove the SPAM folder from my account. I get 60+ from WHORES every day. I thought is was not legal to solicit *** over the phone, internet, street corners or any other way, but your allowing it to happen. WHY WHY WHY
Please tell me how to do this. It seems so cumbersome to have to open the email, copy the address, and then go paste it into the blocked list.
I just want to click on button to block someone without having to copy and paste one at a time.
A block button would be nice. I am in the process of deleting my yahoo account because of the spam.
You could certainly give us a "block" option. I've asked Yahoo to block certain emails like MSN allows you to do. To no avail!!! I'm sick of getting spam from some idiots that send the same email every day, two and three times a day. BLOCK them PLEASE!
When I click on something and show it as spam I want it BLOCK. I don't want to see it in my inbox or spam folder.
You used to be so much better with this a year ago.
I get sick and tried of these spam: mail order brides, inhance *** drive, inlarge *****, Buy watches, and I WANT to date you and see my pictures..
I want to block an email address by "right click" on the senders email address and click on the (now non existing) "block this email address".
Can you arrange this functionality?
I want to select an e-mail and then have the option to block the e-mail. Right now I have to go through a few steps including copying the e-mail address to block an e-mail and some e-mails I don't want to open
In the email list pane to the right of the sender name/address are 3 icons. Search, Delete and Mark important. It would be nice to have an icon for "Add sender to blocked list".
I've been receiving spam from some particular e-mail addresses for the last 5 years. Why shouldn't I have the option of blocking them or for that matter choosing to stop receiving all such e-mails. A block/unsubscribe button is the need of the hour.
We want to love Yahoo mail like we did it years ago. Please don't make us jump to the google bandwagon.
Add a quick button "permanently block e-mail address" to the spam folder.
- Icon to quickly permanently block unwanted e-mail addresses in the spam folder
I am tired of receiving all those ****** emails from wanting *** to making my ***** harder etc.. These should be band as child **** is band. Yahoo has tied our hands by making it very hard to block people. Nor has it attempted to screen out these type of emails Yahoo give us back an easier way to block emails
I am tired of all the *** messages that i did not ask for..I have kids that use this account. right now its hard to block these messages.. You all should make it easiser..
on the drop down menu on Yahoo mail there should be a option to block future unwanted e mail from my inbox as a lot of it is offensive.
How about a simple "Block this sender" option for all the junk that shows up in my inbox/spam folders every day???
We should be able to have the block email option on the drop downs available in the email box. We should not have to go to settings and paste the email address there just to block an address. Thanks.
ONE BUTTON BLOCK SENDER PLEASE!!!!
Great news everybody! Based on your feedback, we have added a Block button to the More menu on emails you receive.
This feature is currently available for all English-language users, and will be available to the rest of the world in the next few days.
We really appreciate your feedback, and hope you find this new feature helpful. You can find out more about blocking addresses using this new feature in the Yahoo Help article:
Thank you all very much for all your comments!
I have blocked, filtered and banned spam addresses and they still show up day after day.
find the spammers and block them completely. they constantly show up even when spam blocked???
It is disgusting the way **** spam keeps showing up in my spam folder. I don't touch any such web site. Please find a way to stop this. I have listed content as far as I can and still get the spam. Let me use unlimited content block. I would keep listing it there. I also block every spam that comes in. I know you have the power to stop the unwanted spam. Please do it!!!!!

The Block function is not working .
In "Blocking" of undesired emails function if I check and "Delete all existing emails" it doesn't seem to be working. Those emails are still there after I click ok.
Now that I have gmail and Hotmail I will keep yahoo for the sole purpose of receiving spam and junk mail. This way, those sending will never contaminate the important mail I receive from friends and relatives.
The block method you have implemented is not working. I have tried it many times over the last 2 months and the same companies continue flooding my inbox with their spam advertising. Expedia if one of the biggest offenders of spam as they have countless email addresses to replace the ones blocked.
Still get spam! Years ago I never had this issue the spam was sent directly to the trash bin.
Yahoo stinks wrt spam email. Gmail is soooooo much better. If you are not able to keep spam out automatically like gmail, please improve your options... WILDCARDS are a must, otherwise all your block and filter options are a JOKE!
That is a start, but you need wildcards!!!!!
Also, I want blocked email addresses to not even go to the spam folder. They should be truly blocked!!! Please add that option!!!
I want all ****** emails blocked from my account or i will close it. I have unsuscribed with no results.
does not block in spam, why????
Block button does not work so why put it there!!!
Dear Yahoo, your "block" button only marks an email as spam. It doesn't ADD IT TO THE BANNED EMAILS LIST, which is what we were requesting. Please include this feature. Thank you.
Thanks For Your New Blocking Feature,
but some of my yahoo accounts do not
have the choice under 'more', how can
I add it ?
Tracy Smith commented
meh. This is useless. You have to actually type in the address you want blocked which means there is a chance of accidentally opening the spam email. It's almost as if Yahoo WANTS you to open the spam emails, maybe so they can get paid or something. I don't even use this feature. You should be able to click on the box next to the spam, choose "block email" from the drop down box and be done with it. Worthless.
Your new block feature is less than useless. I used to be able to block an entire domain by using a wildcard option "@domain.com".
Now under settings it is called banned addresses and blocking an entire domain is no longer possible, when I try I am told "The email address to ban is invalid".
I am now flooded with more spam than ever.
What is wrong with Yahoo? My children and I don't need to see:
Want a new F#CK BUDDY tonight.
MILF wants to F#CK you.
I am totally disgusted with Yahoo Mail. It is one thing after another that aggravates and insults users.
I have other email addresses with other providers who do not have these problems, why is it not possible for Yahoo to FIX it's email service?
none of the "features" to block spam works. I am currently getting 100 spams a day and I have don the filter and block and ban, etc. etc.
what is scary is that all of my Yahoo accounts are being attacked in alphabetical order. they seem to be going to me and multiple other yahoo accounts. there should be a way to deny emails to multiple accounts. my account name isn't even in the recipients line. this shows me that someone has all the yahoo account information and is selling the info to these spammers. probably a former employee of yahoo.
i have been waiting for these spammers to stop attacking my current account but it has not stopped. i have over 3,000 emails in the spam folder. thought yahoo was supposed to clear out spam over a month old. NOT>>>
like i said what is scary is they seem to be finding my accounts in alphabetical order. they haven't gotten to my main account. so it is scary for me;
yes Yahoo i will get my info together and close down all my Yahoo accounts and go to Gmail accounts. you cant help us, so will go elsewhere. also wont have to see your sponsered ads every minute a different one.
another rant, don't want to give a mobile phone number. What, more info to sell on web.
another rant, don't want to connect other email services to yahoo. what more info to sell and better for the spammers to use.
It appears this block feature only works on the inbox. I'd like to be able to go into my spam folder and select all and block them. You guys are making things more difficult than they need to be or to be implemented. Simply do a better job and destroying spam so you don't have end users complaining to you.
Certainly a step in the right direction, but your SPAM filters need to do a better job on the front end. You also need to increase the Banned Address limit from 500 to a much larger number or once again do a better job on the front end with SPAM. I've already maxed out the limit.
