    Hello,

    Would you like to block someone from sending email to your Yahoo email account?

    If marking their messages as spam does not work these are the directions for manually creating an email filter:

    • Click the Options link in the top rightof your inbox and select Mail Options

    Please note that you can create a maximum of 15 within a free Yahoo mail account.
