How Do I Get Rid of Yahoo Spam?

Spam is one of the most frustrating issues in Yahoo Mail. If you are getting a lot of spam emails in your account, you can get rid of them by following these steps:

Mark emails as Spam

  • Open the spam email in your Yahoo Mail account.
  • Once opened, click on the Spam option.
  • The email will be directed to the Spam folder and all messages from the sender will be directed to the Spam box only in the future.

Mark emails as Not Spam

If you find any of the important emails in the Spam folder, you can mark it as Not Spam by following these steps:

  • Go to the Spam folder. In case you do not see the "Spam" folder, you will need to click on the More option located below the "Sent" folder.
  • Next, select the unwanted email.
  • Then, you will need to click on the Not Spam located at the top of the page. The email message will get back to your Inbox folder.

Unsubscribe from Mailing Lists

You will find the unsubscribe option located at the bottom of most subscription emails. Make sure to unsubscribe from the email you suspect is spam. In case the email was filtered to your spam folder, Yahoo Mail automatically disables any links to ensure the safety of your email.

In order to make things easy, you can manage active subscriptions in the Subscriptions view.

  • Select the Subscriptions view located on the left-hand side of your inbox.
  • Then, go to the mailing list you want to unsubscribe from and click on the Unsubscribe option.

Additional Tips to avoid spam in the future

  • Make sure to always avoid replying to unknown senders.
  • Always share your email address with a trustworthy individual.
  • Make sure not to reply to email subscriptions that are asking to be removed.
  • Never trust sites that claim to remove your email from spam lists.
