I use a few different email accounts and have to think Yahoo is the worst of them all.
The other accounts I use (gmail and outlook) don't let spam through at all. When I check my yahoo spam folder, there are always at least 30 messages in there (and I check a few times a day)
Why let them even get into spam. Some are so obvious, they should be filtered and rejected right away.

I am expecting some e-mail, however, it just never comes through. For example, I register as a member on a social networking site and I need to activate my e-mail before membership becomes effective. This is a bit inconvenient, as I have to switch to my other e-mail accounts.

BTW, you can add filters and have things moved to a specific folder.
I too get too many fake emails from 'admin@" or "info@" and the likes.
I am also getting too many emails with ****** content. Most are 'African rides' and the likes. Seriously Yahoo? You can't get this worked out??
As for things landing in spam that are legitimate, yes, that happens too. From senders who are in my address book.
I am not saying get rid of the spam folder. Just add better filters so it doesn't even hit my spam folder. Some are so obviously fake email addresses.

The Spam filters should do a Bass64 decode on the From and Subject fields. Everything sent in Base64 (i.e. emoji in the headers) is not filtered.

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.

Singapost is a phlishing mail. Block it please. Keep sending with different email address.

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.

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?
Janet Keating commented
I get dozens of spam every day that begin with admin@. Do you know how to block them automatically, so that they don't even go to the spam folder?
jan mckee commented
The ability to block spammers with a word option or included would be great i.e. "admin@"
Simone K commented
I got a lot of spams too. Would more simple, if report spam, as was before by using : icon, More°°|- select Report. (If you recieve a lot of spams <email@example.com> with addresses like this every day it take too much time to report by current metod )

In regards to spam and blocking addresses why give users 1000 blocking spaces and then once used up the user has to delete them all one by one? Seriously??? You couldn't add a check all feature? Too much coding? The designers can't find the bandwidth or motivation to add a check all box? Not enough in the budget for overtime? Is there any sort of department head that oversees this or do the kids have total autonomy? One by one? F**** sakes man.

I agree on these 100%. It's like there's no filter for spam emails. I get SPAM e-mails everyday!
Yahoo please fix this, have better filtration please!
