Spam from yahoo.com accounts

Spam from yahoo.com accounts

I'd like Xfinity to please explain why I'm receiving numerous spam emails from yahoo.com.  Fifteen so far the past two days.  I forward them to spam.gov and move them to the spam folder.  What else can I do?

Re: Spam from yahoo.com accounts

Do you mean someone using a Yahoo email address?  Or do you mean you are gettings ad emails from the company------Yahoo?  If it's garden variety junk mail, just keep marking them as Spam when they get to your Inbox.  it helps to train the filters.

Sorry my post was unclear.  I'm receiving spam from yahoo.com email addresses for all sorts of nonsense.

OK then follow the course of action I posted upthread.  You could set up a filter to block the Yahoo domain, but then you would also block any legitimate emails from people who happen to have a Yahoo email address.  You might find these short articles of interest----------------
