All (7) of emails I received on 10/10/2008 went to my spam when all were from legitimate contacts. I flagged those 7 and are still in my spam folder. I want to know why it happened. Is it because of hte content of the emails?! Emails from concentris.com, reginet.com, compusa.com, and my own 2nd email acoount usually do not go into spam folder; specially 7 of them in the same day! Can you let me know who can answer me on why this has happened? my email address which this happened in is email@example.com, cell phone: (408)205-5859

Is often good to be careful about such emails unless you know and trust the sender or service provider. However often seemingly legitimate emails are not. Any person with some coding knowledge can make what looks like a legitimate notification from a company you do business with, and provide a link to 'phish' you (obtain logins and security codes, passwords) through their own web site. Best way to avoid this is to not use the links provided in emails even from services you know and use well. Type in the site you want to go to and login through the official means.
For instance I recently got a notification from 'gmail' that gmail itself flagged as spam. Things looked right, with the logos all present - but there was something a bit off about it. It didn't look exactly like any notification I had gotten from them before. Same with another from 'paypal' which was flagged spam. Instead of using the links in the email I went directly to the site to access the information, avoiding possibly being scammed. It's worth it to be cautious.
Firstly, change your password on both accounts, as both accounts may be compromised, secondly run a virus/malware scan on all your devices that you use to access these accounts (avast for virus scan, unless you already have an up to date anti virus installed. Malware bytes for Malware and maybe a scan with super anti spyware wouldn't go amiss). After you have done all of this then you can start looking into why your accounts are flagged as spam. It could be the IP address that your Internet provider has given you has previously been flagged as a spamming IP Address, try turning your router off for about 20 minutes so when you turn it back on you get a new IP address and try again then. As an individual user there is not much more you can do apart from contacting google and Yahoo, they both have forms online (a little tricky to find) that you can fill in to ask to be removed from the blacklist. It may be prudent to have a look at the goole terms for bulk sending as well to make sure you are not falling fowl of googles t&c's. Hope that helps.
Many email carriers, including Yahoo mail, have spam filters that can help you to manage your spam mail. 1. Log into your Yahoo mail account. You can skip this step by checking the box next to the phrase "Keep me logged in" before you sign in. Only check this box if you're on your own computer. Otherwise, other users of that computer have access to your account 2. Check your spam settings. Click "options" and choose "mail options" from the dropdown menu. Click the "Spam" link on the left. From this menu you can choose how often the program empties your spam folder and whether it moves suspected spam automatically to the spam folder or just marks it as spam and leaves it in your inbox.3. View the contents of your spam folder periodically. The spam filter is not fool proof and it may flag some legitimate mail and move it to the Bulk folder. It is best to check for any mail you may want and move it back to your inbox before you empty your spam folder. 4. Delete your spam. You can either wait until it Yahoo deletes it automatically, based on your Spam settings, or you can do it manually. To manually delete your spam, click the "Empty" link next to the Bulk folder on your mail folder list. You can also open the spam folder, click "More Options" and choose "Select all". You can then click the "Delete" button to delete all the selected messages.
Most definitely a phish. Don't respond to it but do go to Yahoo's mail site and check your account there. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS IN EMAIL! You could end up anywhere. Delete all suspicious mail - do not click on the "unsubcribe" link. You're just telling them your email address is active and they aren't going to unsubscribe you from anything.
Unfortunately, Yahoo doesn't give their end-users the ability to block specific senders. I'm guessing the messages you keep getting from that address are all junk. What you can do is mark the address as "Spam". The message will be automatically moved out of your inbox and any future messages from that address will be flagged as spam.
If you have already done that or if you are adament about not receiving the messages at all, even as spam, you may need to contact Yahoo's support team and let them know that the sender needs to be blocked.
A lot of times, the "Remove me from this list" option in those junk messages is a spoof that simply signs you up for another email distribution list. It's a good practice just to deflect them using the "Flag as Spam" option.
