How to Block Yahoo.com domain.

I get a ton of spam from the Yahoo.com domain.  I have no contacts who use Yahoo.com email.  Therefore I wish to block all emails from that domain.

Under ‘Settings’ I went to the ‘Allow and Block Messages options’ and then chose the radio button for’Advanced Block senders’

 

In the ‘Blocked Senders and Domains’ box I entered the text:  yahoo.com

 

But the spam emails keep pouring in to my inbox.  I tried to enter @yahoo.com, but the page rejects that.  I was able to enter *@yahoo.com, but that doesn’t stop them either.

 

Can someone please tell me the proper way to block an entire domain using the ‘Allow and Block Messages options’ ?

Get a GOOD email service, like GMail or Mail.com, then forward your mail there,  and use the filters they have and that work.

Yahoo Mail serves as the contracted home of email services for several other domains, such as SBCGlobal.net.  The Yahoo 'spam' you are receiving may be originating in one of these 'subsidiary' domains, then sent to the addressee (you) through a Yahoo server.  Those messages won't be blocked by using the Yahoo.com line.  You can check this by reading the full headers when you receive the undesired email messages.
