How to get rid of ads on my screen when I go to my in box in Yayoo mail


You can either temporarily hide the ads that keep popping up on your Yahoo Mail page or block them permanently. To know how, refer to the steps below.

To temporarily hide ads (for free email accounts):
1)Sign in to your Yahoo Mail account
2)When, while viewing your list of emails or a particular email, an ad pops up, you can see a right-facing arrow between your email and the advertisement. Click on this arrow.
3)The ad will get hidden temporarily.
(Important: This blocks the ads temporarily only and as soon as you perform the actions like refreshing the Yahoo Mail page, marking a particular email as spam, replying to an email, or just clicking on any of the sections in the navigation-menu located on the left of the page, a new ad may pop up again).

To permanently remove graphical and text ads:
Yahoo Mail has recently come up with "Yahoo Ad Free Mail" service to enable you to get rid of graphical and text ads on a permanent basis when viewing your Yahoo Mail account from a computer. You need to sign up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail account before starting using this service.
(Note: Before signing up for Yahoo Ad Free Mail account, please check if the service is available in your region. Also, even after subscribing to the service, the subscribers may still get the text ads that come up on Yahoo Mail on a mobile web browser and the text ads that come up in the "Basic Mail" interface of Yahoo Mail on a computer. To know what Basic Mail is, refer to the following Yahoo webpage: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/basic-mail-sln5171.html)
To know more about Yahoo Ad Free Mail service, refer to the following Yahoo webpage:

How to Safeguard and Protect Your Email Addresses from Spam?


Tired of receiving spam emailsin your Inbox? Wasted too much time identifying and trying to blockspam emails? Don’t grieve. Here’s how you can secure your personal email addresses from spam and unsolicited bulk emails (UBE).secure-email.jpg

email-sign.jpgConfuse the Spam Bots
One of the oldest tricks is not to post your email address in“plain” form online. Instead, you can disguise your email address bytyping it in a knotty way so that humans can still read and understandit, but bots cannot. For example, instead of writing “eric@gmail.com”,use “eric AT gmail DOT com”.
Use Disposable Email Address
There are many times when you need to sign up for a site whichrequires that you provide an e-mail address to send a validation e-mailto. Instead of giving your personal email address (and get spammedlater), try using a disposable emails, which by the way, are free.
Few of these which we find very useful and user-friendly can befound at 10minutemail.com, www.mintemail.com and www.guerrillamail.com.All these sites will give you a temporary e-mail address. Any e-mailssent to that address will show up automatically on the web page. Youcan read them, click on links, and even reply to them. The e-mailaddress will expire after a certain period of time, usually more thansufficient for the intended purpose.
yahoo-mail-logo.gifFancy a permanent disposable email instead? Then get it from Yahoo!AddressGuard which is part of Yahoo! Mail. It lets you createdisposable email addresses to use whenever you don’t want to give outyour real Yahoo! Mail address, but when you do think you’ll probablywant to receive what this source sends you—a receipt, or an invoice, orsome other valid communication. You can create many alternate addressesand access them all from your Yahoo! Mail account. If any of yourdisposable addresses starts getting spam, just delete that address.It’s that simple!
Never Respond to a Spam
If you receive an unsolicited bulk email (UBE) and suspect it’s aspam, never ever respond to it. Do not fall prey by clicking on theUnsubscribe link as this will only verified that your email address isindeed genuine! Just ignore these emails and trash them.
Identify Your Spammer Source (for Gmail users only)
Many of us might not know that, by adding a plus sign (+) and afilter tag to your own Gmail address, you can track which of the sitesthat you’ve given your address to are selling your email addresses tospammer on the net! To do this, just use the plus and tag every timeyou enter your address into an online form. The trick is to use thename of the site you’re visiting as the tag, so it’s easier to tracklater on.
gmail-logo.jpgSoif you are buying something from ABC.com, enter your email address asusername+ABC@gmail.com. Gmail will ignore the plus sign and everythingthat comes after it, so messages sent to that address will still maketheir way to you. But if that site sells your address to spammers, youcan easily identify it by looking at the Sent To address in the header.When this happens, you can use Gmail’s Create a Filter settings toblock and direct all future emails to Trash automatically.

Email messages occasionaly disappear after being cancelled , cannot be found anywhere?


If you canceled or deleted you can retrieve them in most web email clients.

GMail:
If you've deleted a message permanently, by clicking Delete Forever in your Spam or Trash, it isn't possible to recover the message.
If you've moved a message to Trash, by clicking Delete, but it's been fewer than 30 days and you haven't permanently deleted it, follow these steps to put it back in your inbox:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't see Trash along the left side of your Gmail page, go to the Labels tab in Settings, then click the show link next to the Trash label.)
  3. Locate the message you'd like to move to your inbox, and check the box next to the sender's name.
  4. Click Move to Inbox.
Yahoo:
Of course, you can also undelete a message quickly as long as it is still in your Yahoo! Mail's Trash folder.
Undelete Mail in Yahoo! Mail To undelete a message in Yahoo! Mail or Yahoo! Mail Classic:
  • Go to the Trash folder.
  • Open the desired message.
  • Click Move in the Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
  • Select Inbox or any other folder to recover the message.
    • In Yahoo! Mail, you can also drag and drop the email to any folder, of course.
Also you can serach on Yahoo itself by look at the left upper corner you can see a search bar if you
remember some info. from the sender.

How do I keep e-mails from being sent to spam or bouncing back to the sender and not going into spam at all? The 'not spam' key does not fix the problem with future e-mails.


i'm guessing your're using a "throw-away email service" like hotmail, yahoo, gmail ... email your email provider about the issue because it could be them. the other option is to use a different provider.

Trying to stop muptiple spam mail, to my yahoo mail plus e-mail,at times it's 360 spam in e-mail


One option would be to get a Gmail account at Gmail.com, as it is great at blocking spam, and any that gets through, you just have to mark as Spam and you won't see it again.
If you have to stay with yahoo, there are many third party spam blocking softwares available to help you out. Yahoo may even provide Spam blocking feature (I don't use yahoo, so don't know for sure).
Good luck
