Block domain name of spammers

Block domain name of spammers

Dear,

 

I keep on receiving a lot of spam e-mails from the same domain names on a daily basis. I keep on blocking the e-mail addresses, but the next day I receive other e-mails from the same domain name. 

 

How can I block e-mails from a complete domain name? I take all responsibility for blocking these domain names, it is such a nuissance..

 

Thank you,

Willem

Re: Block domain name of spammers

You would use the banned address list.
Hover over the far right gear icon ⚙ in Yahoo mail and then click "settings".
Then click "Banned Addresses" in left column.

 

Just put the domain name instead of a full address.

Example:

trashmail.com

Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.

Hi @Willem

Along with marking the emails as spam you can also set filters and individually block emails. I have provided some information below which will walk you through setting this up.

Use filters to sort and organize incoming email:

Block addresses in Yahoo Mail:

Re: Block domain name of spammers

Thank you very much for your help and feedback. Unfortunately it doesn't help much.

 

The messages keep on coming, the domain names contain small changes though or slightly different numbers.

 

The domainnames contain at least the following info:

 

autumnimage

suddenrushanapolis

saltandcornmeal

itinaet

essentiallearningonline

shareacademia

pinkarchitecture

 

Could I block IP addresses where those e-mails come from?

 

Thanks again,

Willem

Re: Block domain name of spammers

I tried as you suggested but when I enter the domain name e.g. domain.com, it says invalid email address. I also tried domain: domain.com with the same result. So how do I block all these spam coming with different first part  but with same domain name? e.g. **Username Protected**@buythistrick.com, **Username Protected**@buythistrick.com and so on?

@hercule

I believe that blocking domains works better if done from the Classic Mail version. Give a try.
