How do I stop all the spam being emailed to me as groupname-owner@yahoogroups.com?

Modigleana asked:

I have two yahoo groups. Both groups’ spam filters are turned on but on a daily basis, I get spam sent that has been sent to groupname-owner@yahoogroups.com re-routed to my personal email address. These are not messages from members but are from people external to the group. They are flagged as spam by Yahoo, but are still routed directly to my personal email address.

Please, no stupid or irrelevant answers. I have email filtering. I do not need a new email address, and please do not simply post the Yahoo Groups spam info as Spamguard is NOT solving this problem in any way.

Even setting my groups to send me no email does not solve this problem because again, just in case you didn’t get it already, the email is being routed to me when it is sent to “groupname-owner@yahoogroups”.

Any help in stopping this would be appreciated.

    I am also suffering from the same fate and have stopped checking the email I use for moderating Groups on a regular basis.

    Have you considered using a different email address for your Yahoo Groups and using the web interface instead of email?

    Same problem here. I set up a special folder for spam and created a filter so that anything labeled as spam (not by Yahoo, but my own spam marking program) goes there rather than my Inbox.
    Later a quick glance in that folder will locate anything sent there by mistake, but that rarely happens, and I can usually just do a mass-delete. And it does keep my Inbox from being cluttered with all the spam to the owner address.
    Doesn’t stop it, but makes it less annoying.
