i get more spam than i do real mail WHY is that ???
Raymond Mar commented
Spam filters need lots of work - not catching/blocking the most basic stuff - - - I shouldn't even have to go to the "Junk" folder to delete this stuff......

Why can't you stop all of the spam emails threatening to shut down my Yahoo email unless I click on their "link" I am getting 7 or more emails a day with the same similar message all from different email addresses. I tried to create a rule filter but it is not working.

Could yahoo enforce their filters or is that too much to ask?

YAHOO MUST WORK ON TO FILTER THE SPAM MAILS AND ITS VERY FRUSTRATING FOR US TO WORK AND LEFT WITH NO OTHER JUST MOVE TO GMAIL AND GMAIL HAVE 20000000000 STARS FOR WORKING. LEARN FROM THEM. IT'S FREE BUT THINGS NEED TO WORK

it is painfully obvious that yahoo do not care what we think of the new version of mail or how poor their sevice is.
Lots of issues with performance that haven't been rectified. Lots of unneccesary pop ups that crop up at the most inconvenient times that cannot be switched off and prevent you carrying out the task you were trying to complete. Lots of junk mail getting trough the spam filter, assuming there even still is a spam filter? doesn't look like it with the sheer quantity of dross getting through. The settings we are allowed to change don't appear to have any discernable impact on performance. And to top it all off the visual makeover looks like it was aimed at pre-school children.
We, as users, clients, customers have expressed out dissatisfaction to yahoo about all of this for many months now, and yahoo have failed to come up with any solutions to even one of these complaints. Which says very clearly that yahoo do not care how poor the service they provide has become, or what we think of it.
I rate the quality of service a grudging 1 out of 10 (Only because a service exists)
I rate yahoo customer service a big fat neon lit zero

The filters are still filtering some of the messages some of the time, but not all of the messages all of the time. My inbox is being littered with messages that slip through the filters.

in spite of blocking addresses and deleting spam emails, the new versaion of mail appears to be incapable of actually blocking obvious spam e-mails, in fact I'm receiving far more now that I ever have in the past. I can only guess that the AI or algorithms that yahoo are using is inherantly unfit for purpose, so yet another aspect of the absolutely awful new verrsion of mail that has a negative impact on users.
Yahoo, start listening to user feedback and respond in a positive way please, or do you simply just not care about what we think and the issues we are experiencing?
I've been getting the exact same kind of spam for the past two or three days, clearly from the same people and with more or less the same content.
Your detection algorithm simply doesn't work. I marked all of them as spam and they keep coming, one after the other.
I really wouldn't like to make a definitive move to gmail, but seems the only reasonable alternative

How hard is it for Yahoo mail to remember my Spam settings? Every so often, senders I mark as spam end up in my Inbox.

How do I delete email filter??? You, Yahoo team really makes very difficult to find what I am looking for, you don't make it easy for your loyal customer. Keep it SIMPLE and use COMMON SENCE!!!!

Spam filter never learns.
Despite repeatedly moving subscriptions from my Spam folder to my Inbox folder, Yahoo Mail fails to put future email from same senders to inbox.
Block spam mails effectively from your side.
Rod Cardosa commented
Why do you limit the number of junk emailers that I can block to only 1000? This should be an unlimited amount. I realize that these junk email senders are probably a potential source of revenue for you but, how does that help me with the 75 to 100 junk emails I get everyday?
i'm getting emails that are from "yahoo"(spoofed) fishing for my passwords and yahoo has no way to report them .you think yahoo would filter emails that say it's from yahoo but is really not

How can I BLOCK unwanted emails?
Thomas Haaland commented
Please redo the spam filter. Way too much comes through now compared to earlier.
And what's the deal with having to pay to talk to someone - seems it's time to switch to Gmail!
Randolph Terry commented
Mail hangs all the time, Far more SPAM. And you have removed most of the reasons I use Yahoo mail The new version is worthless and as far as improvements, all I see now is mail has more advanced tracking abilities and ways to invade your privacy

I received an email from someone threatening me that they would show my indecent pictures to all my contact that they got by spying on me if I didn't put amount in there bitcoin account. NO, I did not pay him, I just deleted the email. Also, when I go through my emails, it stops and goes back to my home page fro no reason. This needs fixed asap!
