How can i block an entire domain in Yahoo! mail?


The mail bombing is seriously starting to get on my nerves - how can I block the whole thing - or would it even be possible to block sentences like "laptop on us" on the subject line?

    Go to Options > Mail Options > Spam. In the Add Block field, enter the name of the domain that you want to block, such as "" (without the quotes of course). Then click Add. This should block everything from that domain.

    (If you are still a user of the original Y.Mail, go instead to Options > Block Addresses.)

    I was trying to block an entire domain as it continuously changes the username to keep bothering in my Yahoo Plus email though I believe I was doing it wrong because despite I was not including the always changing username, I was always adding the @ before the domain. Now I blocked just the: (or org or net or whatever) without the @ and it seems to be working. I will keep monitoring and will let you know if this could be a permanent solution.

    Yahoo guys, please take a serious note of this. I am almost forced to stop using yahoo mail because spam marketers are changing username with the same domain and sending large number of spam mails. A simple *@* blocking option should help.

    I have been getting viagra spam emails for 10 months - sometimes up to 30 a day. On looking at the internet and messages left, this spammer is well-known and nothing so far has stopped him/her./them. He/she/they do not seem to have the brains to realise that the constant barraging of someone with thousands of the same email is not likely to produice a new customer!

    I made a filter that ensured they go into the Trash folder, but suddenly for no apparent reason from late June 2015 Yahoo ignores the filter and puts them all in the Spam folder meaning I still have to manually delete them. As Yahoo has not answered my online enquiries and cannot be emailed (I pay for my email - Yahoo Plus), I have written to them in London. If it continues, I will NOT renew my subscrption and use another email provider who is free.
