I am having a major problem, every day I check my mail (using MS Outlook 2010) and I will receive several messages from random names @yahoo.com
 EXAMPLE melissacook5467@yahoo.com  rubyprice 6570082@yahoo.com.
 These are all spam type messages.

And let me be clear I know how to block an individual  address!! I want to be able to block ALL mail sent to me from anyone using the domain @yahoo.com. any other domain is fine I just want to block and person sending me mail using @yahoo.com from ever showing up in my inbox.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help on this...

I will give this a try sounds logical. I just checked and my only possible option is to check    If the Sender name  contains the word(s)  fill in the blank with @yahoo.com
then i can check box it to delete it or move it to a specified folder in my online account (not outlook) which will work since i check mail using outlook anyway.
Now I just have to wait until I can have a email sent from someone using yahoo email.
Thanks this might work!!
