Block Spam in Yahoo Mail

I have a Yahoo mail acct that is receiving continuous spam. It properly goes to the spam folder, but I would like to block address.

Protecting Yourself From Spam: Blocking Email Addresses | Yahoo Help


The above is directions from Yahoo on how to block spam. Problem is the spam email does not have an address that I can locate. It only has the body of the message (advertising).

Any ideas on how this spam address can be blocked ? Thanks !

When I use to use Yahoo mail client. I had the same problems. Never did find a fix. Try using a differ mail client. Keep Temporary Internet files and cookies deleted. Run frequent virus scans. Also, use Malwarebytes, and CCleaner. Sometimes, while browsing you'll pickup unwanted downloads. Some of this stuff works it's way into email as spam. Good browsing habits are key. Social Networks, such as, Facebook, My space, and Twitter; Are great places to get infected with all kinds of stuff. Like email spam!

Thanks for the reply. I do all of the above and the spam is not causing any known problems. I just want to block the address.

I've never known that to work either, they just keep changing the address to get through your block list.

Join the crown! We are all getting email bombed!

Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to...
