Feature to block spam email
Yahoo mail was allowing a person to block spam email on a permanented base. By that I mean I could click on the 3 dots next to the spam link and I was given a choice of a choice to stop these types of emails from being sent to my email address. This was working great and now that feature has been removed. Why? You were able to look at the email ID and or the URL and see that it was going to cause malware. Why was this removed?
Hi. If the limit of 1000 blocked addresses has been reached, the option will disappear from the drop-down.
Spammers are constantly evolving their practices and blocking their email addresses does not help, as they are mostly sending emails from spoofed addresses or they send the same content but from different email addresses, which makes it look like they are coming from the same email address.
Marking them as Spam teaches your personal filter to recognize them as Spam. I'm sorry there is no quick fix for this issue!
