What do I need to do to make Yahoo SpamGuard Plus work?

SpamGuard Plus is a feature that automatically filters suspected spam to your Spam folder. SpamGuard Plus also learns specifically what you consider spam and not spam, and filters those messages to the appropriate folder. The more you train the filters by marking messages as Spam orNot Spam, the better the filters will work for you.

You can view and manage SpamGuard settings in the Business Email Options:

    1. Sign in to your Yahoo Business Email account.
    1. From the main Yahoo Business Mail page, click the Tools (gear) icon link in the upper-right corner of the page.
