How can we improve New Mail?

Block addresses by domain name

Blocking individual addresses does little to stop the plethora of SPAM these days. If we can add a block by domain name feature, this would help cut down on repeat spammer domains.

    Whenever any new version is released, as a user, we expect more added features and advanced functionalities available. But, unfortunately, Yahoo removed the 'Block Domain Address' features and instead asking to block email address. Blocking email address will never help a user from receiving hundreds of SPAM emails. Why don't you introduce Block Domain address feature or else we have to thing of moving to some other email solution.

    I want to block kartforkart.com probably one of the worst spammers. Better yet why does not Yahoo recognize this as spam and put it right into the spam folder?? Or just let me block by domain for you don't want to offend the domain owner.

    Why did Yahoo remove this important spam-fighting functionality? Even the help section says you can block domains but it doesn't work. I have dozens of top level domains in my block list so it obviously used to work. I just want to block appspot.com, which is only used for spam.

    Why I cant add DOMAIN name to be blocked? I have tried it just now and it takes ONLY email address. You cant filter SPAMs yourself which I believe you cannot because I get SPAM email in my inbox everyday. So please allow your users to block what they dont want to see in their inbox

    I want to block kartforkart.com and am not currently able to do so. Please help!

    I constantly receive spam messages from changing senders from the same domain. Here's the problem, I used to be able to type in a domain to block, now mail requires that it is a full email address. I want to block the domains that are spamming me, not just individual senders. Creating a list of only god knows how many people all from the same domain does not make sense from the End User's standpoint or from a business standpoint.
    The sheer amount of spam along with my inability as a user to combat this effectively has driven me away from yahoo products.

    I delete and block senders so why in the F(CK does your piece of SH!T mail server not do what is intended? Don't send me a bullSh!t excuse for your incompetence either.

    I'M looking for an answer from YAHOO! regarding blocking a domain but apparently going nowhere I give up,.. I guess the answer would be to switch to GOOGLE!!!

    Yahoo instructions explain how to block a domain,..but when I enter a domain ,..yahoo won't accept it
    and tells me this is not an e-mail address,..I just want to block domains as per yahoo instructions,what's wrong???

    After blocking emails I receive it from same id again and again which has made me frustrate to use yahoo mail.

    I block addresses from my spam but they still get through. How is this possible if you are supposed to be blocking them?

  • nancy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    im blocking the spam email address but they still return.....why?????

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Email blocker doesn't work and it's coming from someone using my friend's name. The sender thinks it's a joke.

  • bhanu shree commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Whenever I block and address from "block senders option" in inbox, it doesn't get added to blocked addresses automatically. Please fix this. I still get emails from senders that I have blocked in inbox.

    I've been deleting and blocking for no less than 8 months and still get hundreds a week? What is happening? Yahoo gives no information or help at all. :( If someone can help, please be so kind and help..................Thank you!
