Difficult Spam to filter

Greetings,

I am getting spam email that I need advice on trying to filter out.  I get maybe 20 to 30 emails a day and my gmail spam filter does not work on this type of email.  Note, that the email that I am getting spam's on is from my personal domain which I have redirected via Go-Daddy.  Could this be a problem that limits gmail from identifying it is Spam?

Here is a typical spam (see below); they all have a web link back to "groups.yahoo.com" or "tech.groups.yahoo.com".  The problem is, like this link shown below, it takes his domain and redirects it to the yahoo site.  The link doesn't even have a yahoo.com link in it and of course they have unlimited yahoo email ids so I can't filter on that.  The spam looks computer generated and it links to a pharmacy site that sells drugs on-line.  They obviously have an affiliate ID on the link so they get $ if someone buys something from this site.

Thanks for your help!

Spam starts here,

Don't create a filter just keep sending them to the spam folder.. do not ever click on any of the links or show the images or try to unsubscribe. If you do either then you let the spam network know that they've hit a LIVE email address and your spam will increase a LOT

I have been putting them in my spam folder but I keep getting them.  There must be a why to filter them.  Maybe I don't allow emails from the yahoo domain except people I already know ?

have you tried using yahoo.com
and adding your whitelist address's that use yahoo.com
You will need to add a label to filter the messages to spam is not an option unfortunately
for example
Matches: from:(yahoo.com) -{TSCM-L@yahoo.com OR [immortalmarilyn@yahoo.com}
Do this: Apply label "Junk E-mail"

Now you can select all of the Junk E-Mail Label and mark it as spam or delete it or whatever
