Is there a spam filter that works with the free yahoo email accounts?

IDespiseSpam asked:

I want to be able to block spam, not have it go to the bulk folder. Reporting spam doesn’t work for me, it just generates more spam.
I have the spam filter enabled and I have tried using the filters to block them, but that doesn’t help either since I only can have 15 filters. Even then, it doesn’t block all the emails with the keys words in the filters. I have rechecked the filters to make sure they’re correct but they don’t work very good. I don’t open spam and I have the images blocked. Spam had gotten down to around 20 or 30 a day, then all of a sudden two days ago I had 100 & some. I have not signed up for any newsletters or anything like that that would have my email address on it. It seems that everything I try doesn’t work with Yahoo. Training the filters doesn’t work either. I have had the filters set for several months.

    Click the option button. You can add all bulk content to a blocked list.

    Go to options>Spam>filter
    Enable it.
    Block those senders.
    It does help. Maybe you have gone to their sites.
    That sure puts cookies in your PC.

    Turn on the SPAM GUARD in your options on the right side and click on mail options.

    click on Spam and check it.

    The purpose of the Bulk folder is to collect spam mails so they don’t collect in your inbox. The only way the reporting of spam can generate more spam is if you open it. NEVER open spam mails, under any circumstances. By doing so, you could be alerting the spammers to your active email address, to which they will then send a HUGE amount of spam in the future. If you don’t like the spam sitting in your Bulk folder, change the setting in Spam Protection to delete messages upon receipt in the Bulk folder. That way they are zapped the moment they arrive.
