If they are in your spam folder there is not much you can do.

 

If they are in your inbox then mark as spam and if from the same address them add to your blocked address list.

 

You can block email addresses or domains from ever reaching your inmbox. You can not block items already going to spam.Hover over the far right gear icon in Yahoo mail and then click "settings" ("more settings" in New mail).
Click "Blocked Addresses" in left column ("security and privacy" in New mail).
You can block domains or complete addresses.
For a domain do not include the @.
Currently you must use Classic mail to block a domain. New mail gives an error.

I do not work for Yahoo and my postings are just my opinion based on experience.

Greetings @mg_vishwakarma @lvbowler05

 

This is the only way I know to stop receiving spam email once you start receiving them.  It's not for everyone but I can guarantee it works.
