Stop spam in Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail automatically filters suspected spam messages to your "Spam" folder. However, sometimes unwanted messages still make it through. Here are some tips to help reduce your spam.

Stopping spam

Avoiding spam in the future

  • Never respond to unsolicited email.
  • Never respond with the word "remove" (or similar) to stop unsolicited spam email.
  • Avoid displaying your email addresses in public places or online directories.
  • Never sign up with sites that promise to remove your name from spam lists: though there are some legitimate sites, most are address collectors used by spammers.
