Unwanted email can be annoying and offensive and files attached to incoming email can sometimes contain computer viruses. SBC Yahoo! Mail provides protection from both forms of abuse.
SpamGuard helps block junk messages sent to your email inbox. SpamGuard routes most junk email into the Bulk mail folder, and lets the messages you want to see into your inbox.
To further protect your inbox from spam and junk mail, SBC Yahoo! Mail also features AddressGuard. When you are concerned that sharing your SBC Yahoo! email address could expose you to the risk of spam, AddressGuard lets you create alternate, "disposable" email addresses to protect your privacy.
To help shield your computer from viruses, SBC Yahoo! Mail features email anti-virus protection, which automatically scans and cleans incoming and outgoing email attachments. When you try to download an attachment, the system automatically checks to make sure the file is free of all known viruses.
With built-in spam, privacy, and virus protection, SBC Yahoo! Mail helps you stay in control of your inbox.
