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

Even your " filters don't" work. I keep getting this E-mail that says Tammy XOXO, wants to meet you tonight for " some fun." I can't Unsubscribe from it and your SUPPOSED FILTERS" don't work. YAHOO is NOT THE YAHOO I know.

I get dozens of spam from a spammer that changes their From address for each email making it hard to find real email that ends up in my Spam folder. Their addresses all include updates@.
"Window Replacement @ Renewal by Andersen"
"Curious Finds - Holiday Guide" <updates@*****.com>
ZippyLoan Notification <updates@*****.com>
I created a filter to send anything with updates@ in the From address to trash but it doesn't work.
Deliver to "Trash" if From contains "updates@"
Tech support claims Filters work but I suspect that they are only looking at From title in quotes and not the entire From field where updates@ is listed. It would also be nice if the Delete option was put back into Filters.
Please fix it.

I received a mail from my business yahoo address asking for a ransom on bitcoins
How can I manage to be protected?

By ensuring that once a spammer has been blocked, they CANNOT send any more e-mails to the person that blocked them. I block most every sender whose message goes to my Spam Folder, yet I am STILL occasionally receiving spam from these senders!

In early 2020 spam filtering stopped working. The "mail options" choice is no longer available. There is no spam filtering options in Yahoo Mail.

Popcornlist out of Budapest manages to circumvent the"block emails" feature by slightly modifying their email address, i.e popcornlist.amy; popcorn list.bud, etc.You can't shake them. Can't yahoo block their server!!!

How about taking the information gleaned from mail users feedback forms (when responding to spam ad emails) and actually USING said feedback to inform what spam ad are sent to users? I have given feedback about spam emails I receive several times a day from some kind of Trump MAGA organization, literally dozens of times! But does Yahoo stop them from reaching my mailbox? No! Really thinking of changing all of my email addresses because of this.

I cannot believe that after all the complaints I see here and "reviewed and closed", phishing report is still not available. Your help pages are bogus in this regard. It would seem that phishing is not a concern for Yahoo.

I HAVE CONSTANTLY ASKED THIS OF YOU, YAHOE, AND STILL NADA....WTF?
Lola Barello commented
ALL MY EMAILS ARE ON MY SPAM LIST...WHY? I HAVE REPEATEDLY ASKED YOU. DOES ANYONE WORK THERE OR ARE THEY ALL ON PERMANENT BREAK?
Since 3/10/2020 I have started getting observably more spam than before.
I haven't subscribed or posted my e-mail anywhere, so my guess is that yahoo itself updated it's spam filters globally.
So, in my opinion, you can improve yahoo mail by checking what did change up, and revert it back.

Mail was fine until you approved the SPAM. Google ads are not the problem,, your INCLUSION of Google adds into a Yahoo product IS,,,,,,,,

Get the spam and garbage OUT of Mail

I want to unsubscribe from unwanted emails but you make that impossible when you disable the links when sending to spam. So unsubscribe me before it goes to spam and then we are cool.

too many unwanted mails keep pouring in my mailbox, though i unsubscribe but they keep coming..

Disposable emails are set up so that we are not BOTHERED by junk email from companies that practically force us to give them our emails. I set up a disposable email because Yahoo won't let you create another email without a cell phone --- which I don't want to share with anyone unless it is an emergency. So I created a disposable email thinking that those bothersome junk emails would go to a separate email box so I could quickly dispose of them. Instead they go to the main mail box. Really? REALLY? Why even give that option? Yahoo that is so dumb. Now I have more **** than ever before in my mailbox --- that is such a disservice and is not explained in your information when one sets up that USELESS disposable email address. Wow. You need to fix that so disposable emails go to a separate email box or folder.

Even though I continue to mark things as spam they still make it to my inbox. They have NOT changed anything in their address it is still the same. So WHY and HOW is this? SO annoying! What filter do I need? Is there a glitch?
