Blocking emails; New yahoo

SOLVED

Blocking emails; New yahoo

I have Micro. Edge..10... I use Yahoo "new" email. All instructions to block email send you to "GEAR"..When I go there, it is totally different than what I'm instructed to do..ie..The options that appear, are for the format of the email appearance..nothing at all such as... the options they suggest. I've read different peoples opinions of the New email but, no one that I have seen has mentioned this problem..In short all the instructions that tell you to go to the GEAR have a definite option, which the new email does not give you..What to do now ? Switch back to the old ??...Thanks, Phl

Re: Blocking emails; New yahoo

Thank You for Info..I definately have New Email..I tried to follow instructions to Block but, the prompts I get aren't what you suggest..Mine are like this :.After going to gear, then settings..I get:  Theme , Layout In box spacing..I had to log into Yahoo.com and then go to my email...

Can't do anything via Microsoft Edge.....I, at some point, messing around found a way to Block but it didn't work. I forgot how I got there !@!!!

Don' know what else to do....I do appreciate your prompt reply...Phil

If you can't find what you need using Microsoft Edge then I would suggest using Mozilla Firefox browser.  I would also review the instructions for New Mail as they show exactly what you want to do.
