Using Yahoo mail classic, I want to block 100% of mail from Hotmail.

    Yahoo help indicates that the domain name should work.

    "If you want to block messages from a particular source, just list the sender’s specific address or entire domain."

    Well, Robert, you block the address(es) - in a special way.

    Look for the 'Options' link at upper right corner of mail screen and click on it

    Options /mail options

    Click on 'spam' in the list on the left.

    Then in 'Blocked Email Addresses,' enter the E-mail address you wish blocked, in the box after 'Add a blocked address' and click on the 'add' button -

    block the entire domain, by putting in

    *@ thedomainyouwanttoblock.com

    for instance: *@seeyou.com

    In your case, you want to type in *@hotmail.com, then click on 'save changes' at top left of screen.

    You will never get mail from that domain again.

    Hope this helps

      Do not use the @ symbol in the domain name you want to block.
