I blocked Spam by the hundreds everyday; when will it stop? My gmail account I get 2 spam a year. Why so much spam even when I blocked consistently, each day hundreds appear, even from those I've blocked...

I've been a Yahoo Mail user since 2002 and the amount of blatent spam that gets through your filters in the past 6 months or so is insane. I'm getting obvious spam and phishing emails through to my inbox on almost a daily basis.
Yahoo, please, please, get your developers to improver your spam recognition. It's becoming too much to bear!
I mean, I can report Spam emails and mark them as spam, then the next day I get exactly the same style of ones through.

Yahoo is allowing offensive mail into my Spam folder. Why is Yahoo allowing this and how can it be stopped?

None of these items match my actual algorithm, so why do I get so much?

We are getting ever increasing amounts of spam coming through your system into our mailbox. We have diligently used the spam reporting tool and we have now used up the maximum amount of allowed blocked email address.
This is very poor our other email providers such as outlook and Gmail never give us this trouble and have far more robust blocks against spam.
Yahoo needs to step up its game as it is letting through dangerous and inappropriate content freely. Despite us been very carful and avoiding going on inappropriate websites.

Om mina barn skulle se mejlen vore inte trevligt. Inte trevligt för mig heller. Om det hade varit möjligt att polisanmäla dessa äckel hade jag gjort det.

Att ta bort spam. Jag vet att Hotmail tar bort dem efter några dagar. Ett annat förslag är om man kan just fyll i att kunna blocka alla. Nu kan man bara ta en i taget. Jag får massor av sexmejl varje dag. Det tar hårt på mig. De hamnar i spammen men i bland får man ändå kolla där så man inte missar något viktigt. Hade det varit mitt barn som hade fått de äckliga mejlen hade det varit förödande.

Spam. Why can yahoo mail not delete spam as it arrives in my spam box? anything I have tagged as spam continues to come. I have blocked senders email addresses and domains but still they come in their hundreds. Please delete them all.

Why not send ad's for dating sites to only people who request them? It kind of sucks when the only ad's I get are for ******* dating sites and I have to explain the to my wife? WTF? And I tried stopping these ad's in the ad's preference page and they still are trolling me!

I use Yahoo because I don't want to use Google for email. So what is this Google password spam? You want me to switch to Gmail?

Make it easier to report and block spam emails. A person's email is just as important as their physical address. It's used for many legitimate business transactions. Yahoo needs to keep this spam from reaching our inbox.

I've had 112 spam messages in the last 3.5 hours - many of them x rated even in the subject lines. Why isn't yahoo blocking all of this ****?

I used the spam tools and blocked the domains of the worst offenders ,but still getting bombarded with spam from those domains! I have used up my 1000 blocked address file and deleted it and started over. This has to be something that yahoo is aware of ,it's beyond ridiculous.

Yahoo email supports the setup of filters but they are only applied AFTER yahoo has checked if they weren't spam.
From yahoo help: "All emails go through the spam filter before going through other filters"
This setup is causing me issues, because somethimes a valid email ends-up into the spam folder and this issue is that I get so much spam, that verifying if there is some valid email among them all becomes very tricky.
I tried creating filters to move spam email into a folder "to be deleted", so I would delete all the spam as per my own rules (ideally we can also move to trash instead of another folder), keeping the spam folder a bit cleaner and making it easier to "see" if any valid emails have ended up in here.
Saw that other users wanted to have similar functionality, but threads were closed, so opening a new one...
WE NEED TO BLOCK THE SENDERS!! AND ONLY BLOCK THE DOMAIN, WHAT IS AFTER THE @, BECAUSE OF AUTO-GENERATED E-MAILS. ONLY THE USER IS AUTO-GENERATED, THE DOMAIN AFTER @ IS ALWAYS THE SAME.
BUT THERE ARE SOME E-MAILS THAT DON'T SHOW ME THE "BLOCK" OPTION... IS MY BLOCK LIST FULL????? I THINK I BLOCKED 100 UNTIL NOW... IF WE COULD BLOCK BY DOMAIN, WE'D HAVE SHORTER BLOCK LISTS.
I KNOW THE SPAM FOLDER IS FOR THEM. BUT I'M SICK OF SEEING **** AND MATURE **** IN THE SPAM FOLDER EACH DAY! EVERY DAY 15-20 **** E-MAILS. IT'S PAST RIDICULOUS AT THIS POINT!
SO PLEASE GIVE US THE OPTION TO BLOCK E-MAILS BY DOMAINS, NOT FULL ADDRESS. AND THE OPTION TO MANAGE OUR BLOCK LISTS. SO WE CAN REMOVE THE OLD AUTO-GENERATED E-MAILS, OR EDIT THEM.

I am getting several emails a day with the same tag lines, same subject, same rough email address, and no matter what filters I add, or what emails I block, they get through. And what's more, I can't just block the spammer from the email itself, because YOU apparently decided that this particular sender is immune to being blocked. So to do it, I have to copy their email address, and manually add a filter to block them, because after more than 2 decades, you STILL aren't listening to the people and allowing us to block entire domains like a SANE developer would do.
