Overcoming spam mails in yahoo mails

Hi,

There are actually cases wherein spam emails will be sent to your Inbox. One is because of the site you’ve visited that got your email address. It is also possible that you’ve sign-up for regular emails on websites allowing them to regularly send unwanted emails.
 
You could actually mark those emails as “spam” and it would be moved to the “Spam” folder. This will categorize the marked email as spam. To do this, go to your Inbox, select the email to be marked and click the “Spam” button beside “Forward”.
 
Spam mails unsubcribe
 
But if you have actually signed up for a website for the emails, you could actually unsubscribe to their email by clicking the “unsubscribe” link located at the bottom of the email. 
 
Lastly, it is important that you change your password; it could have been that your email account was already compromised.
 
I hope this helps.

Overcoming spam mails in yahoo mails

I think, as with my experience since I had my first ever email address, it’s impossible to prevent spam mails from entering your mailbox. Even if you filter spam mails in your account, you will still be receiving spam mails. The root cause of this is your own email address that you use to register an account to other websites. I have several Yahoo! Email accounts and there is one that doesn’t receive spam mails maybe because I rarely use it.

Even if I rarely use it, I don’t use it as my email address when registering to other websites. This is my own way of protecting my account from unknown mail senders. I only use it for my own personal emails. I use it to send email messages to people I know. If you frequently use your email address every time you create an account to different websites, you are increasing the risk of getting spam mails. Spam mails don’t only contain advertisement materials and information but also negative materials like fake emails. One example is a fake email informing me of a package from DHL and the message says that I should download the attached document file. The file which is a Microsoft Word document turns out to contain a virus. I think it was a kind of a worm.

So, the best way to protect your email account from receiving spam mails is to use a dummy but a working email for your website registration needs.
