Help with my account
For the last two days I’m receiving dozens of nonsense emails. How can this be stopped? Thx
Hi there. The more often you mark these emails as Spam, the more you train your personal mail filter to recognize them as such. We recommend following these steps to manage your incoming emails: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/manage-spam-mailing-lists-yahoo-mail-sln28056.html
You can always create filters: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop/filters-organize-yahoo-mail-sln28071.html

I thought I was the only one and I have been searching Yahoo for the last hour! I have been with Yahoo for 25 years. Please, please fix this soon, or I will consider moving to another mail supplier. Also, a few important emails have landed in my Junk emails.

I agree too. Have had this same email account for 22 years now and the past two weeks have had an horrendous amount of spam which I have moved to my junk folder which it should have gone to automatically. I too will make my gmail account my primary email if this continues. Please fix this Yahoo!!

I don't know what is going on with Yahoo, but I'm ready to leave it if something is not done about it quickly. For the past week or so, I have huge amounts of spam coming directly in to my inbox. It doesnt matter how many times I report these messages as spam and then block them, it still keeps coming. Please fix your service asap.

I agree and Thank for sharing this. It would be great to have a features where we can pay and increase security including blocking the e-mail extension instead of the entire e-mail at a time. Yahoo you need to fix this ASAP as I don't want to leave. But I will if it is going to be a problem.

Thanks for all the comments, glad to hear this is extensively a broad problem which all the users are experiencing in a very unfortunate way. Looks like no one from Yahoo is interested in taking our comments into consideration and I've being leaving this account after 25+ plus worryingly just because of this very unsuccessful type of marketing strategy where we have some real good alternatives.

Not only am I getting all the Spam in my inbox but suddenly some critical emails from my lawyer and other important contacts are going to my Junk folder!! This is absolutely unacceptable and needs to be fixed. Yahoo has really dropped the ball.
Laura J Griffith commented
Having the same problem. Will be completing my move to gmail if this is not fixed.
Andrew McMillan commented
Please re implement the span filter or I'll have to change email providers.

Same here. It's super annoying and has to stop!
Phil Kenny commented
Same here for both me and my wife. I don't understand why Yahoo hasn't addressed this. The spam emails are so obviously spam.

A week ago I started getting a lot of junk in my inbox. A few days later there is an email from Yahoo encouraging me to get Yahoo Plus which would help filter these more. What a coincidence.
Colin Watkins commented
Ditto, both my wife and I have this issue, what have you changed to cause this?
I thought i was doing something wrong, until i read this thread !! yahoo is THE ABSOULTE WORSE EMAIL MAIL !!! not to mention they track your every purchase and everything you do online !! watch the ads .. they track US !!! YAHOO IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED !!! AND THEY CARE LESS ABOUT YOUR PRIVACY !! OR ANYTHING ELSE , I DONT EVEN SEE ANY COMMENTS from YAHOO... REGARDING THIS ISSUE !! I AM LEAVING YAHOO !! i have been with this email outfit for YEARS !!! time to move on to a better email platform !!!

Can you please disable the automatic unsubscribe feature when I am marking things as SPAM?
It asks if you want to auto unsubscribe, and I've accidentally clicked the okay twice now and it just floods my inbox with more SPAM because they aren't legitimate websites that I've signed up to, they're all scam SPAM.

Yahoo email is so annoying. everyday i am getting 100s of spam mail.. I will wait for few more days then i will get rid of yahoo account for good. All the suggestions i am getting is useless. simple solution is to leave yahoo and switch to gmail. Gmail is so safe and easy to manage. Never had any problems with google account
Carolee MacDonald commented
WHAT IS UP WITH YAHOO... I HAVE SENT SEVERAL FEEDBACKS/COMMENTS OF LATE REGARDING RECEIVING SO MANY SPAM EMAILS AND YET YAHOO CHOOSES TO IGNORE MY FEEDBACK AND ALL THE OTHER THAT I HAVE JUST READ... GIVING US MANY SPAMS IS NOT A WAY TO GET ANYONE TO UPGRADE THEIR YAHOO. WE ARE ENTITLED TO YAHOO "DOING THEIR JOB" AND GETTING RID OF THE SPAMS! DUH! DUH! DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Adam Green commented
Adding that in the last week I've had hundreds of spam emails a day in my inbox, either it gets fixed or I'm leaving
Max H commented
Absolutely migrating my email stuff to gmail...this spam is ridiculous and I'm not about to reward Yahoo's slimy behaviour.
William Meade commented
I have been with yahoo mail for as long as i can remember....where are all these JUNK mails coming from...just of late, I have dozens of **** mails in my in box...marking them spam or choosing the block option DOES NOT work....i will leave yahoo soon if i cannot solve this new problem
Coco ODonnell commented
Yahoo has been circling the drain for many years now. This egregious and deliberate flooding of inboxes with spam will backfire. I've already started changing all my subscriptions to a different provider and yahoo will be just what it is--a repository for junk. RIP yahoo.
