    I marked many emails as spam, but my inbox keeps on receiving emails from the same source. Why?

    Spam is tricky. Especially the recent waves of spam, because while they all have a similar source and there is similar subject matter, the sender will almost always be a different email address.

    You will most likely have to deal with the influx until the Yahoo mail servers can update and improve their filtration methods to cover the new sources (there may be an open SMTP server somewhere that they are all generated from and the mail servers can block IP blocks or whole mail servers).

    I concur. Added to the random email addresses, a lot of spam is being sent out as embedded images so as to avoid text recognition scans.

    I'm particularly annoyed about occasional legitimate mail that gets mistaken for spam, and is trashed.
