I had the same problem with my yahoo email. I had to start up another one. Ray swears by gmail. Unfortunately once your email address is out there, it's a lost cause.

If you are open to paying for pop3 access, you can upgrade your Yahoo to Yahoo Mail Plus. After upgrading you Yahoo Mail Plus you can use a mail program on your computer such as Mozilla Thunderbird to read your email. A mail program on your computer should provide a better/additional layer of spam filtering for your email.
