- Aug 3, 2007Yep....I have all 50 of my filters used up with the way they're "revising" their spam.KP----- Original Message -----From: Dan WilliamsSent: Friday, August 03, 2007 1:19 PMSubject: Re: [Y-Mail] Yahoo Mail spam filters having problems?I noticed that spam seems to come in waves. The spammers come up with a new way to get their messages out, and then it takes a week or two for the spam filters to start learning their ways and catch up. Happens every few months.

Subject: Re: [Y-Mail] Yahoo Mail spam filters having problems?Maybe there is something different about the spam that you are receiving today that the spam filter isn't "trained" to catch. I would suggest being patient and continuing to use the Spam button to deal with these messages. You can try contacting Customer Care, but I suspect that they won't tell you anything more than to keep using the Spam button.As for receiving the same message over and over, that's a good question, and one that the Yahoo Mail staff would need to answer. I have been flagging emails from a certain job listing site as spam again and again and I still keep receiving them.____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _______

Subject: [Y-Mail] Yahoo Mail spam filters having problems?For the past few weeks I've been getting a lot of spam in my Inbox
despite using the the pay version of Yahoo which is supposed to have a
better spam filter.
For example, this morning I received 28 spam messages, with 7 of them
showing up in my Inbox. This is a 25% failure rate for the spam filter.
Previously maybe I'd get one or two spam messages in my Inbox a week
and I receive hundreds a day so that was less than a 1% failure rate.
Has something changed?
Also why do I keep receiving the same messages over and over when I
keep flagging them as spam?
