Windows 7: How to block words or phrases in Yahoo! Mail?

How to block words or phrases in Yahoo! Mail?

I am still receiving around 20 spam mail a day although I've been trying my very best to avoid junk mail.

The titles of the junk emails are mostly similar, for example "Please rate my body". or "Russian Sexy Girls". Although they have gone to Junk section, it still causes a lot of inconvenience to me.

Hey, I'd like to know if I can block the email with titles of certain phrases? For example, I want to block the emails or senders with phrases "rate my body" because they are junk 99.9% of the time, but don't block the mail if there is only "rate" or "body" in the title or "Hi, kenny, please rate the progress of your body building". Because it may be the specified email that comes from my Gym club. Or, for example, block only "Russian sexy girls" but not "Russian sexy men with girls". Block only phrases

Thank you

But can I block phrase instead?

I may not want to any email as long as there is "body" in the title because it may not be spam.
But if they come with the phrase "please rate my body", then I want to block it.

I'm not sure. I've never done any filtering.

Create a filter with a phrase and then send yourself a test e-mail with that phrase in the subject line :-)

Let us know if it works.

Hi you might have better luck reporting them as phishing scams ?

Either that or view the original and block the senders domain "If" Yahoo offers domain name blocking ?

But this just another example of why you should not be using Yahoo mail ?
Cheers.

Using filter won't block emails, only let you sort them to a folder. The only way to block in Yahoo mail is to use the Blocked Address option. The only thing if you black an address like jblow@somewhere.com the senders likely use spoofed addies and would still send you more like jblow1@somewhere.com.
You will need to block domains as ThashZone said. You'd add something like somewhere.com to you blocked list then nothing from that will make it in to spam or any folder. Yahoo allows having 500 blocks, I have 429 currently.

The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open.
