Do you get spam mails on Yahoomail?

Hi fellow mylotters! There is a problem with Yahoomail lately. I receive tons of spam messages. I thought yahoomail is good at preventing spam messages in your mail. Today I just receive credit card advertisements, life plans, and gadget news which as far as I now I never subscribed on them. What's wrong with yahoo's spam guard. So right now I'm sticking to my nifty and goo mails. How about you? Do you get spam mails too?

I still maintain my gmail account and compared to yahoo, I think spam messages have been under control. My yahoo is also loaded with spam mails.

Hi zandi458! I heard gmail is good at preventing spam mails, but I still haven't tried it since I had Goo and nifty mails. Today's yahoo spam protection is really getting weaker. Have a nice day!

~hI! yes, i do get spam mails on my yahoo mail, but they are only few for about a week, and it is so maybe, because of that, that i don't use it to register to some forums or sites,I just use it to communicate with my colleagues. And when I see there are spam messages in my spam box, I even don't read them just delete the whole "spam box" and read the mails from the "inbox"!!! ~

Hi nautilus33! Most mails on the spam folder are really spam mails, so I delete them without second thoughts. But those on my inbox are mixed with my regular mails. I think I should inform my contacts that I switched to my nifty mail before abandoning it for good! Happy mylotting!

Hi andryan7legends! It really annoys me because those spam mails are on my inbox instead of the spam folder. I do delete them but they really are annoying..

Sachii, you can go to Yahoomail Options and enable spam filtering and 95% of spam would be stopped. You can either move them to a spam folder to set it to automatically delete them. But, this is not that recommended as sometimes even genuine e-mail gets moved to spam folder.
