SPAM mails are the most annoying email issues. It is impossible to deal with thousands of irrelevant emails coming to your inbox calmly. Especially if you receive them on daily basis and it becomes a task to find work related emails from the heap of junk emails. Yahoo! Mail offers spam filters to reduce this issue. These filters directly send the suspicious emails to the spam folder. However, sometimes these filters become problematic and don’t work as designed. This means spam emails are not transferred to the spam folder or important emails are sent to spam folder. This creates difficulty for users as their inbox filled with spam email.

Yahoo support services provide some guidelines to ensure that filters work properly and emails are sent to correct folders. So, try these solutions if you can’t find your emails in correct folders:

How to Fix Yahoo Spam Filter Issue:

-Every email goes through spam filter before moving to next filters. So, if you can’t find your emails in inbox or any other folder, check spam folder.

-Check if you have created any empty filter (filter without rules.) In case this filter is at the top of all other filters, other filters’ rules will become void and mails will be sent to inbox.

-Create multiple filters sensibly. A filter uses all rules defined to separate emails, if any of the rule is not matched, the filter will not apply. So, if you want a filter to satisfy any of the two rules, create two separate filters.

-Another reason for a spam filter not working might be conflicting rules. Avoid using positive and negative phrases together in a filter.
