I can't block whole domains anymore. I also can't copy an email address in my inbox. Blocking spam just got a lot harder.
I want to be able to block entire domains again. I can't even block an email now without clicking reply or forward and then copying the email address, then opening up the settings and pasting it. Then the spam email gets saved to my drafts!

Why can I no longer block SPAM? That option has now been removed and I WANT IT BACK! Being able to block SPAM cut down enormously on the amount I received. I don't care if SPAM filters send email directly to "Junk", I want the option to block them completely. It is ridiculous not to be able to completely block it. After over a decade with Yahoo, I am beginning to think it's time to switch to Google.
I'm currently getting multiple SPAM emails every day from a seemingly endless number of sources that all end in ".live". Theses sources are all using randomized, jibberish-named sub-domains:
Other problem sources are the .wow sites:
We really need to be able to create blocks such as:
It's been almost 2 years and nothing is getting fixed. Time to move on.

I think I already covered it, sick of tired of blocking the same spam messages and they always come back.
How about blocking known domain spammers such as adventureaptitudes.com. In my research I found that they recently purchased the domain. How about letting us block just the domain
How about blocking email addresses with ridiculous names such as zTkYDYpvanNkTEgeJIyScpMWafCZQSpQEPFnADtvuexAe@ You know these are spammers

I agree. Yahoo is just not a very secure email service. They are prone to data breach and at the same time my the email accounts are prone to spam attacks. The last thing is that they don't even have an option for domain blocking, just email address blocking. I got six spam emails over Christmas Day and Christmas Eve with the same domain.
Besides AOL, Yahoo is probably one of the worst online services when it comes to cyber-security over the 21st century.

When I get spam messages in my spam folder, I select all and select "Block Senders" and make sure "Block all future email" and "Delete all existing emails" are selected. I'm not 100% certain that it isn't blocking all future emails, but I know for a fact that the "Delete all existing emails" option doesn't work at all. It brings them right back.....
Also, there should be a better spam filter in place, or a way to filter based on things like, oh I don't know, if the sender's email is nothing but a bunch of random letters and numbers? I'm pretty sure that can get filed under "Spam" instead of showing up in my Inbox.
All of them have random characters before the "@" symbol. Your algorithms should be catching them before they land in our emails. Blocking each individual domain is tedious and reactionary. Please increase your filtration, or allow users greater control to block @*.eu addresses across the board unless access is granted to specific, known domains.
Am I the only one who feels the developers are ignoring our request for domain blocking? I am tired of having to switch back to the previous version of YahooMail in order to accomplish this simple spam blocker.
Just a quick note in case anybody's not tried this out yet: switching back to the old user interface brings back the ability to block whole domains :-)
Yes please, as the other comments mention - please bring back the option to block entire domains, rather than just individual email addresses.

Scamers/Spamers and ******* use ONE domain with different handles to bombard us with rubbish and often totally inappropriate mail. We should not have to write each full email address every time we want to block them. PLEASE GIVE US THE RIGHT FILTER
