Better filters to direct spam away from my inbox. Way too much spam mail!!
Amit Verma commented
Now a days, there are lots of Junk emails coming to our folders. Even after Unsubscribing the emails, it is not actually helping us. they use different method / pattern to annoy email user.
An idea to deal with such situations can be:
An explicit Unsubscription from Yahoo provided with emails, which can identify the Origin / Source and Pattern of such email like offering credit cards, selling, Insurance, vacations etc.
Yahoo can use filtering method to deal with such email which would skip the inbox for those emails and move them to a different folders.
Provided there should be a method, so that user could identify those for example if their own Bank's emails can be could be ignored from this process.
This process might need AI skills to identify the patterns of such junk emails, also it could include User's repeated actions on emails like deleting, or moving it to another folders.
This feature is in need today. Because Unsubscribing is not helping the User to do the important things with the emails. They might be spending lots of time on cleaning up their junk like me :)
This can be discussed more and implemented.

Why can't yahoo filter spam messages like gmail
I am getting an enormous amount of trash in my inbox. This formerly was put into my spam box, but now I get it in the inbox. Please stop this.
Lindsey Napoleon commented
same problem. even after marking emails as spam multiple times, they keep getting through. sooo many
Jim Osborne commented
I can't believe that this is (currently) only the 21st ranked request. All modern day email services have methods for curbing spam, with the exception of Yahoo.
Every day I log in, I see between 3 and 10 new spam emails in my inbox. I'd prefer a way to filter so only emails from my contacts are sent to my inbox. Everything else should go to my Junk / Spam folder.

Your spam filter is broken. I am getting many emails in my inbox that are spam, and now I spend every day re-marking up to 40 of them as spam. This is ridiculous.

Please don't tell me this issue has been closed ... it's happening to ME. Please don't put mail from my contacts into Spam. Thanks!

I have tried blocking SPAM through the junk folder. I have tried manually adding these email addresses they are using - and they are still coming through my spam. Why? Why isn't this 100% blocking them? It's annoying.

Can no longer permanently block SPAM messages and senders. Even after selecting "Block" and receiving message telling me it has been done, messages still remain in SPAM.

SPAM filter is very very worst in Yahoo Mail. I have been using Yahoo mail for decades, bu my experience with email is goo. But Spam filter is very very worst in market. Every day I keep getting spam emails, even then I choose that email to SPAM, next day similar and even same email coming to INbox. More time spent in cleaning the email rater than reading the actual email.
Yahoo guys, please learn from Google Mail how the're preventing SPAM. Guys please learn and grow up. I like to see yahoo having clean inbox.

Not to swift when it comes to computers. Just wish there wasn't so much trash mail!!

Why mess with what isn't broken? How about being more diligent about filtering out the garbage that infiltrates than messing with my messages--I know how to delete what I don't want.

Tonns of spam ends up to my "spam-box". Same thing happened last summer, then You got it fixed. Fix it again, please! 10-20 new post appear every hour. Before summer it was that much per one week.
Do something, now! Pleez!!
stop putting my conservative mail in the spam folder
Shelly Mulholland commented
spam is out of control, the language getting through in the subject line is vulgar, why is this even getting through? you'd think there would be better controls for the users other than us just deleting them day after day, I'm considering deleting my account and using gmail... its out of control yahoo do something!!!
tried again to set up filters based on header "from" that goes into the spam box ( made sure it is saved that way) and the next day those filters are set to go to inbox, which, again make the filter useless ( nobody filters an inbox mail by default to go to the inbox)

NO SPAM - years never had an issue with spam, now yahoo is letting so much more through the filters.. :~((
I have set up a few filters to go to the spam folder. However a few minutes later the filter automatically reverts back to the "inbox" in the settings ( ( thereby rendering the filters useless)
