Get Gmail or use the rules in webmail to help block spam and other attacks.

Block unwanted emails. If you're getting emails you don't want in your inbox, you can block the sender, unsubscribe from the sender, or report the message depending on the type of email.

How do I block incoming e-mails


You can block incoming e-mails from a specific person or from all email coming from a specific email provider by using Yahoo Mail\'s filter function.



Open an email from a sender you want to block. Look at the toolbar above the message. You\'ll see "Delete, Move, Spam, More". Click on "More".



A drop-down menu appears. Just under "Print", you\'ll see "Filter Emails Like These..." Click on that.



12ce8bf1-29f2-45b9-babc-373e9711e1f3.jpg



Name: Fill in the name of the person or leave it blank.



The boxes for Sender, Recipient, Subject, and Email Body all have the same dropdown menu:



251d819b-3e8f-4936-8ec3-8a705c5df317.jpg



How to use these dropdown menu choices: For example, if you want to block every email from an email account at aol.com, you could choose "ends with" and type in "aol.com". The other options work in similar fashion. You could use the "Subject" field to block all messages about, for example, "college reunion" or "Viagra" or "pron".



Click on the last item, "Then move the message to:" to see a list of all your email folders. If you never want to see messages from blocked senders, choose "Trash" and Yahoo! Mail will delete the message before you ever see it.



Bonus: Once you\'ve learned how to use filters, you can also set up a folder called, for example, "Family". Then you can open an email from a family member, click on the "More" and then the "Filter Emails Like This..." options and you\'ll see the person\'s name and email address filled in. Simply change the "Then move the message to:" to your "Family" folder, and Yahoo! Mail will always file all your family email messages in one folder. To read them, open the folder and you can easily find all family email messages in one place.

A person that I work for is upset because she thinks I dont do enough and she said alot of hurtful things trying to make amends


Hi,
If your email account full unwanted email and you are not stop this email. And facing more problem, no issue i share supported link please visit and follow instruction.

First, try not to open any of them, that only makes them send more and more to you.
Check mark them and click on 'Spam,' this should stop those addresses from being delivered to your inbox.
Use your spam guard and block address.
Look for the 'Options' link at upper right corner of mail screen and click on it
Options /mail options
Click on 'spam' in the list on the left.
Make sure spam guard is on, by checking in the little box.
Then in 'Blocked Email Addresses,' enter the E-mail address you wish blocked, in the box after 'Add a blocked address' and click on the 'add' button, then click on save changes at top left of screen.
You will never get mail from that address again.
This should help you to control your spam.
Other tips:
Do not ever open E-mail from people you do not know; and unless you are absolutely sure who it is from then treat them as spam.
Opening spam alerts the sender that your address is a valid one and they send you loads and loads more of it to you.
Never, ever give out your account information or other personal information to anyone.
If you are on a site and you absolutely have to sign up for something, check the entire page to make sure you uncheck any lines wanting to send you any other info, notices, catalogs, ads, and the like.
Added detail:
Yes, spammers change one item in their addresses a lot, so you might try blocking the entire domain, by putting in
*@ abcd.com
for instance: *@seeyou.com
Or, if they change the domain, instead of the company name you can block the name by putting in Imatheft_inc@*

Thanks.

Each client shared one thing in common: the ability to block email addresses, and the process is simple, too.Yahoo! Mail


Visit Yahoo.com and sign into your Yahoo! Mail account.


Click "Options" in the right corner of the screen. Select "More Options."

I have a problem not to receive messages?


The best thing to do first is check with the sender to make sure that they actually sent the message.
If they have sent it, here's a list of conditions that will stop that email from getting through to you. If any of them describes your situation, you'll find instructions on how to resolve the issue just below. Hopefully, one of these will do the trick!
Incorrectly typed email address
Is the sender using your correct email address? Just one mistyped letter will cause an email to go to the wrong address or make it undeliverable. Ask them to double-check that they entered your address correctly.
Sender's email not functioning properly
Can this sender successfully send messages to other people? The problem could be on their end, with sending. Ask them to check.
Inbox needs refreshing ( Yahoo! Mail Classic)
New email often arrives while you're writing or reading another email. The all-new Yahoo! Mail updates your Inbox for you, so if you use it, you'll always see new mail when it arrives. But in Yahoo! Mail Classic, you won't see this new mail in your Inbox until you Refresh or Reload the page, or return to the Welcome Screen, or click Check Mail.
Note: Yahoo! Messenger shows an alert each time a new email arrives.
One of your filters could be directing the email into a folder
If you've set up filters, the message from this sender might be going directly to a different folder from your Inbox. Here's how to check your filters:
  • Click Options in the upper-right, and select More Options.
  • Click Filters.
  • See anything that might be capturing the mail you've been looking for?
  • Note: Messages in Trash can be deleted at any time. Once messages are deleted, they're gone forever, and can't be retrieved.
You're forwarding your mail to another email address
If you're forwarding your mail, it's going to another email address. Here's how to check:
  • Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page, and select More Options.
  • Under "Management", click POP Access & Forwarding.
  • Is the lower half of the page (Forwarding) selected? If so-and if you would like to discontinue it:
  • Click the radio button for "Web and POP Access" at the top of the page.
  • Click Save.
You're blocking this user
The sender's address might be on your Blocked Addresses list. Mail from blocked senders doesn't arrive or bounce-it's simply discarded. Here's how to check your Blocked Addresses list:
  • Click Options in the upper-right corner of the page and select More Options.
  • Under "Spam", click Block Addresses.
  • Scan the list for the address of the sender. If you see it, click it, then click Remove Block.
There's a delay in delivery
Messages are usually delivered within a few minutes. Very rarely, they are delayed while in transit. This is usually due to problems on the sender's mail server, heavy Internet traffic, or routing problems. Unfortunately, aside from waiting, there's no way to know whether a message has been delayed or whether it has been rendered undeliverable. If a sender can re-send it, have them do that.
No matter what the cause, the best solution is to ask the sender to re-send the message.

From your mail home page, Go to your mail options list and under the heading "spam" find the email address you want to restore on the list and click remove. This will take it from your blocked senders list; then email from this sender will come to your inbox again.

You should check to see that they aren't in your block list..

Click on options at the top right of the mail page..
Then click on more options
A new window will pop up. On the left of it, click on spam.

My e mail is sending e mails on its own and then sending me undeliverable messages. It is using the addresses from my e mail account. This is happening when compute is on and off. What can I do? I have...


This is an indication that someone is using your e-mail address to spam people, it is called "Spoofing".

Spammers usually use legitimate e-mail addresses to spam lots of people. But some of those e-mail addresses that the spammers trying to spam are invalid. Because they're just guessing it.

Spammers usually gets a legitimate e-mail addresses by hacking the server of some stores. From the server, they could get legitimate e-mail addresses.

People's email addresses are being registered to the store server once you purchase something online. But there's no need to worry because your e-mail address will never compromise.

Here's what you need to do:
1. Access your e-mail.
2. Open the Mailer Daemon (bounced-back message).
3. Click on Submit as Spam button.

The server of your e-mail will try to locate the real sender via the IP address that the spammer's used in sending e-mails. Then the server should trace and block the sender.

But the most effective one is to create a new e-mail account and inform all your friends about your new e-mail address. And try to avoid buying things online.

Good luck and have a great day!
