    It seems yahoo has decided that corporations do not spam. I've gotten that too.

    They need to work on that, eh?

    The answer is spamguard, or whatever spam filters are used, suck. And really when you think about it e-mail providers have no incentive to make the filters better. That would mean that less people "i.e. the spammer scammers" use their product, they are competing for quantity not quality. I'd be happy with a more helpfult Help section, the spam I can delete my problems\questions don't get solved that easy, if at all.

    Are you sure they are the same addresses? Spammers use a variety of addresses that look alike, but aren't. Just keep clicking beside the message and hit the spam button. Nothing will get rid of all of them, but believe me, Yahoo has the best spam blocker around, except the one I use for Outlook.

    go to ur spam options in the Mail section...then keep clicking continue until u see a set of boxes...one of the boxes allows u to block the sender of spam marked mail..just b/c u label it spam doesnt mean it blocks them automatically...

    it's not enough just to report an address as spam you have to block it manually in mail options
