Currently, the "block addresses" function has disappeared from my "..." menu, and when I go into the settings, it appeared that this is limited to 1000 addresses, which customer service has confirmed. This needs to be greatly expanded, and the simple "one click" function for blocking should be restored, as well as an easy way to also click another box to add their whole domain to the block list (even if you have to confirm in another window so you don't accidentally block @gmail.com or something).
Currently, too many "good" emails get into my spam folder, so I started blocking the emails there so there was less junk I'd have to wade through...and it seemed like it was really helping, until I hit the 1000 address limit.

SPAM FILTERS NOT WORKING PROPERLY AND HAVEN'T BEEN OR A LOOOONG TIME. I subscribe to POLITICO e-newsletters and have added their email address to my 'safe senders' list yet still Yahoo send these emails to SPAM. Time after time I've marked these emails as "not spam" which moves them to the inbox (automatically) yet STILL, Yahoo spam filters continue to send SOME of my POLITICO emails to SPAM (and sometimes to my inbox - even though they come from the same email address - which makes this all the more confusing and troublesome).
Worst of all, I've seen complaint after complaint by many Yahoo/ATT email users about the poor and inconsistent performance of Yahoo's spam filtering - and worst of is that many of these complaints date back a ways - quite a ways - which tells me (and everyone else) that Yahoo and/or ATT really have no vested interest or motivation to resolve these issues.
I don't know what Yahoo's system engineers are being paid to do but they're certainly not focusing on this long-standing issue.
Like another user wrote - " I think it's time to move onto GMAIL". I think he/she is right.

Unfortunately for me, some of my regular mail is sent to Spam so I prefer to check Spam and delete what I do not need.
I am constantly getting spam coming into my inbox lately. There is no filetering happening, for the most part. Is this something Yahoo is working on? My other emails (gmail) is able to filter these much better.

This would be disastrous for me, as I get regular emails from a contact that goes straight to spam. I repeatedly click "not Spam", but has no effect. I've been getting emails from this contact for over 10 years, but this started only 8 months ago. Even Yahoo support could not resolve it, telling me something like the email header is telling Yahoo to put into spam. Well, that's not been the case for 10 years, and by clicking "Not Spam", I'm telling yahoo it's.. er not spam. Not only that, but every day there is at least one important message in spam, so I actually need to keep access to spam emails, because at least 5% of them are not spam.

Please stop this new round of bitcoin and other dating, ****** content emails. The manual filters seem to have stopped working. Can't this content be stopped before arriving in one's email?

I'm very close to closing my Yahoo account do to the huge volumes of spam emails I receive. Is there any way to stop all these unwanted emails from being sent? It looks like there's a block feature that has a subscription cost but I will not be giving any money to an email service that allows its users to be spammed. Please help or I will have to stop using yahoo and advise all my friends and coworkers to do the same. Thanks for your time.

Why is Yahoo Mail actually one of the biggest producers of SPAM mail? How can you be trusted as a mail service claiming to have the best SPAM protection when your @yahoo.com sends more SPAM then any other single mail service to date?
Warren Lowe commented
Only happens on one email address unable to register as spam therefore I keep on getting the same ones on and on

I don't get almost any spam. Byt Yahoo filters out and fills my spam-folder everyday with lots of important emails!
How do I turn spam-filtering OFF?
