  1. Junk/Spam email dropping in inbox

    Hi - In recent weeks I've started seeing high number of spam/junk email dropping in my inbox and not directed to the junk email folder. Trying to mark each of them as spam or move it to junk email folder but this is not manageable. These should have been automatically kept under Junk Email. If this is a strategy to point users to Premium service to have the junk email filtering/blockage that's not correct as this should be a basic email service. If that's the case then I will have depart from Yahoo Email after at least 25 years.

  2. In the past few weeks I have seen a huge amount of spam that's getting through your filters. Impossible to set my own filters to filter it.

  3. spam filter

    The spam filter is NOT working AT ALL. I get SO MANY spam emails to my inbox every single day, and it's incredibly annoying! I mark each spam email as spam, so I'm not sure why the spam filter isn't working. FIX IT!!!

  5. improve spam filter

    Spam filter is funny in yahoo. It blocks the email from a sender whom I have marked as "not a spam" several times. It allows some emails into inbox but still blocks a few. I also don't like this feedback system. Our problems are being made as a thread and voting is being conducted. What the **** is that!?
    You just created reddit version of yahoo

  6. Excessive Spam

    It appears yahoo has started allowing excessive spam through the spam filter. If this is a ploy to force users to upgrade to plus, that is not a good policy. I'm not so sure upgrading to Plus would even solve this issue. I used to get 2-5 spam daily (also as many legitimate email into my spam folder) and now over the past few days its almost 100 spam not caught. I spend the time blocking spam but it just keeps getting through. It may be time to find a better option after 20+ years using Yahoo. Unfortunate.

  7. Blocked addresses

    The limit of 1000 blocked address should be increased to unlimited. I am getting tons of spam unwanted mail everyday and I have almost reached the limit 1000 or give me an alternative solution.

  8. DON'T Trust and Suggest Sending UNSUBSCRIBE to Spammers!

    DON'T Trust and Suggest Sending UNSUBSCRIBE to Spammers!

    Problem 1: You are Trusting SPAM !!

    Yahoo! "Tips to avoid spam" says "Never reply to email subscriptions asking to be removed" but You Do It ??
    We know how to Unsubscribe!

    PROBLEM 2: If it's SPAM/Phishing
    The UNSUBSCRIBE link IS LIKELY ALSO SPAM/PHISHING !!

    Your SPAM recognition sucks!

    Trust US the Users!

    https://help.yahoo.com/kb/manage-spam-mailing-lists-yahoo-mail-sln28056.html

    "Unsubscribe from sender
    When you mark a message from a mailing list as spam and we trust the sender, you'll be given the option to unsubscribe rather than marking it as spam.

    Select Unsubscribe and you will no…

  9. Make it easier to block SPAM

    Once a post has been marked as spam, and is unsubscribed from, BLOCK IT FOREVER .

  10. Stop spam

    Why can't you stop the spam? Getting the same content from numerous email addresses that are supposed to come from places like Costco, Shoppers Drugs, PC, etc., these are all spam and I have sent them to spam every day. You really need to improve your spam filter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. ads

    Please allow me to block ads for holidays like Mother's Day. My mom passed last year and the last thing I need is constant ads about sending her flowers! There is no '3 dot' link on these ads to indicate that I don't like the ads. Fix this.

  13. Your spam filters are ****. If I add a filter for the body which includes the TLD from the unsubscribe link it still doesn't block it.

  14. spam

    At this point, I can only guess between two scenarios under the Yahoo roof:
    1) Nearly everyone is gone, and there is no one left actually servicing these requests.
    2) Yahoo wants users to abandon.

    The spam handling is a joke. There is still not even a category of feedback about it, let alone any even modest effort to filter even the most egregious spam. By all means, take a look at what I've manually filtered every day and see if you agree. Just taking a look, I have a feeling, is well past the effort level that I'd ever…
