How to Block Domain Address in Yahoo

Save

Today's email providers like Yahoo give their subscribers plenty of tools to ward off spam. Adding email addresses to a spam filter usually does the trick. Some companies get around your spam filter by simply using alternate user-names in front of their domain name. When this happens, you can stop the additional spam by adding the company's domain name to your blocked list.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Internet connection
  • Log into your Yahoo email account.

  • Click with your mouse on the "options" link at the top of your Yahoo in-box page. Click again on "more options" if necessary to get the full options menu to appear.

  • Look on the left side of the page and click on the word "spam."

  • Type into the the box marked "blocked email addresses" the domains that you want blocked. Click on the "add" button to save them to your list.

  • Click on the "save changes" button at the top of the page and then the "return to mail" button to get back to your in-box.

  • Repeat steps one through five anytime you want to add more domain names to your spam filter list.

Tips & Warnings

  • The domain is the name that appears after the @ symbol. For example, in the email address spam@filter.com, filter.com is the domain name you would enter into your blocked address or spam filter list.
