Spam: receiving so many non-relevant spam emails in SPAM folder which I can not unsubscribe or STOP it. Really frustrated with and plan to move away from Yahoo.
On the other side few important email are found in Spam Folder, so I need to check Spam folder very carefully. That is not intention of Spam Folder.
I can not blindly empty Spam folder, even though the sender is in contact list/address.
Pls. fix this issue as quick as possible before I permanently close the Yahoo mail account.

It appears the Yahoo SPAM mechanism is not blocking messages with UTF-7 titles and sender information.properly

Your Spam protection is horrible. No matter how many times I block addresses....they still come thru.

Well the spam emails is out of control. Hope Yahoo email can step up the filtering system.

Flag obvious Phising emails.

Your spam filter is letting through fake "Yahoo" messages purporting to be requiring an upgrade. Check, messages today 12/21/21 from "****@yahoo.com. The subject is "Request Update (IMPORTANT)"... this is fraud, malware, etc.

I have been getting spam which is readily recognizable as spam on the surface, but it is not being filtered. It has funny typography and comes from addresses which look like this - I would like to filter to spam anything which has an address with more than 25 letters! They all look like this -

Why do you let obvious spam/phishing emails go through? These are emails with obvious invalid addresses.

Similar issue reported in 2019 & nothing has been done. Protect your customers!! Add a forwarding option to the spam folder please. When a spoof/phishing/suspicious mail is received they say do not open it, forward it to the spoofing dept.. But Yahoo requires that to forward the phish mail in the spam folder, I must open it, transfer it to the "incoming mail" folder & transfer it from there. Not good.
Today I did all of that and then IMMEDIATELY received a new mail from the same sender encouraging me to input account info so I can "stay logged in with this trusted device....". I also received a reply from the spoof unit of the true site thanking me for reporting a fake website.

I get so much spam with yahoo, I have migrated most important emails to other services and soon will cancel yahoo altogether. Even after unsubscribing, etc. still the same junk comes through

obvious spam (e.g. **** marketing) is being delivered to inbox daily.
this should be an easy fix since the to and subject lines often contain giveaway symbols such as ! ( / \ ) |

Suddenly getting SO MUCH SPAM in my inbox from clear SPAM emails. WHY? Also, many of my subscriptions are being sent to SPAM over and over again, despite marking them as "not SPAM".

1000 limit on blocked addresses is inadequate for the amount of spam and scam mail being received. I note this has been raised numerous times without any response or action

It’s quite annoying to find large useless mails in my inbox. Please stop this at once. Real mail is difficult to trace.

Stop sending advertisements & unsolited mail

I am receiving 4-5 emails every day that pornographic in nature. They want to sell male enhancement items. I am not going to pay to stop these. They are offensive and do not belong in my inbox. If you cannot block them I am going to quit using yahoo mail I will go to one of your competitors. I have used Yahoo Mail for 25 years or more.

There are emails that are clearly spam and cannot be blocked for example this one: Adult Industry Elongation Method <> It is truly annoying to not being able to block such garbage!
Also, please increase the spam folder to 10,000. Just 1000 is not nearly enough.

Spam is not being filtered properly. I get a lot in my inbox. I unsuscribe from so many and it doesn't help when the addresses a lot of times are a bunch of gibberish. I am guessing this might be on purpose to get people to pay for services, but it will make people more than likely turn away from yahoo mail. I am about to myself.
