I want to block a domain. Blocking the email address does no good because the spammers just use another name each time.

I've been getting around ten spams a day recently, from barely any in over a decade, mostly from the .space domain, but some from .site and a few from .top. All use the format of no-reply@ followed by three random letters, then a dot followed by three words in English or common acronyms used in English, followed by two digits, then the .space or .site or .top domain.
Have been reporting all of the senders to spamcop.com and blocking them on Yahoo, but it is fairly clear that these spammers are using bots to generate new accounts. I'll very soon max out the ability to block up to 1000 addresses, having had under 90 from over a decade of having the account with yahoo.
The odd time I'm away from wifi, I can get as many as 30 of these in a day, as I won't be around to block the initial addresses in a given chunk of time.
The response to another Feedback on the same issue from Yahoo's "Product Support" is completely unacceptable!!
"Currently, you can’t block domains in New Mail. Since spammers use so many different addresses to send junk, it’s best to mark these emails as Spam rather than trying to block every domain."
For example, *@alice.it & *@gmx.de are very well known for being SPAM SCAMs.
It should not be hard at all for yahoo to check these e-mail domains FIRST from the users "Blocked addresses" list.
If it has just a * before the @, then block ALL from the domain that comes after the @ symbol.
PLEASE bring back this feature NOW!!! What's the hold up? Does Yahoo! LOVE spammers/phishers???

LET US BLOCK THE FRICKEN "DOMAIN"
Dionisia Tara commented
The old Yahoo! used to give us this ability. Bring back this feature so we could block the domain names as spammers just randomly generate their usernames nowadays. Come on Yahoo, you need to keep up instead of losing to spammers. This is truly disappointing.

Well.... How much feedback do you need for us to get an answer and a fix? ANOTHER SIX MONTHS???? PATHETIC!

This is happening to me as well. Why can't we block domains?? Can we get an answer already or is this yet another issue that no one has an answer to or you yahoo ppl just don't care what ppl think as long as you get kick backs from the spammers.

I don't understand this:
-In the old version of yahoo mail, I am able to block an entire domain.
-I can still see the list of blocked domains in the new version of Yahoo mail.
-However the new version of yahoo mail, will not allow me to add an entire domain.
How does this make any sense? Do your developers even ask what users want, or just make the decision for us?

Please allow blocking of a domain. Agree, spammers simply use new email addresses, yet the domain is the same. all ability to block @yxz.com

maybe somehow Yahoo is getting traction from spams so they may not really care about our security otherwise they should have done it already. I think they are smart enough to know that spammers are using multiple email addresses using same domain yet they did not allow blocking domains. Imagine how much traction they will lose without spammers :-)
I found how to access my list of "blocked addresses".
click on the gear shaped icon
click on: "... more settings"
click on: "security & privacy"
That will show your list of blocked addresses.
When I attempt to enter a domain name "t-online.hu" I get "invalid entry"
When I attempt to enter a domain name "@t-online.hu" I get "invalid entry"
It does accept *@t-online.hu but will that work to block the domain???
I second that! for example:
Agent Ditmer Eduart <firstname.lastname@example.org> Mar 27 at 6:41 AM
Agent Ditmer Eduart <email@example.com> Mar 29 at 8:41 AM
Agent Ditmer Eduart <firstname.lastname@example.org> Apr 4 at 1:32 AM
I blocked ALL 3 sending addresses when I received each Phishing SPAM. All 3 use the SAME gmail address for a REPLY!
If I could have Blocked the DOMAIN, Like the OLD yahoo mail, I would NOT HAVE RECEIVED THE LAST TWO SPAMS!
