    I get SO many junk emails on yahoo everyday!! Does any one know of any good spam blockers I can use with yahoo? If so, what is the POP address thing about? I don't know what Yahoo's is, does any one else know? Many thanks in advance!!

    About the only thing you can do with Yahoo is block the domain that the email is coming from and report the email to there abuse department. You could also setup some filters to get rid of some of the junk mail.

    If you pay them to have pop3 access then you could certainly put software on your computer to do a better job of filtering out the junk mail. Pop3 access allows you to download your Yahoo email to your computer.

    Thank you so much for the info. I have blocked enough addresses, it wont let me block any more. Think I'll just set up a new account. This was only a secondary account for me anyways, no big deal. It happen after I gave info for online surveys trying to make money, which of course never panned out :(. Again many thanks!! :)

    Since I don't block any SPAM at Yahoo, you may very well be talking about what they offer. But the terminology is different, so I am not quite sure. Do you use the Bulk Mail Folder and SpamGuard they provide?
