My elderly father has asked me to do this, but I haven't been able to manage...he has Yahoo.co.uk mail, he wants a whitelist/100% spam filter so only emails from domains he explicitly allows goes into his inbox.
I can do this in hotmail, but with yahoo i can find a 'blacklist' filter, which is only for stalkers but is pretty useless for spam obviously, but no equivalent to hotmail's 'everything is spam until told otherwise.' does anyone know if this exists in yahoo.co.uk?

Hello my friend,

That's easy to set it up. Just go on mail option or parameters and create a filter with what you want. That's all

Thanks

OK, so what would the correct filter be for 'everything not in my contacts'? or 'everything except what i give permission to?'

hello,

I believe that you should choose the first that's expeditor and then choose finish by... and add @domain he wants.

Yahoo filter is that clever as hotmail so you will need to do this with any domain he has. so that yahoo system can test all the filter.

Thanks

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this, '@domain he wants' is that the domain for each contact he wants to permit? does that mean you have to get to the Settings screen to add every Contact? there isn't a 'Not Junk' type button?

It's pretty simple, I could add a print screen but it's actually from my mailbox. so just follow this

1- open your yahoo mailbox
2- go on settings
3- choose filters
4- settings ---> Filters ---> Add ---> FilterName
Sender ---> Ends With @domain and save that's all

@domain here is, if for example he wants to receive email only from @mama.org, then in that field you add @mama.org that's all

Thanks

Sorry, but are you saying that you have to add a filter for every person he wants to receive mail from?

hello Silas2,

Just add all you want in the filter that should work. I have no idea on what you want but just tell what is receiver domain and I will try to send you an email with what to do

Thanks

I'm thinking he has maybe a hundred people he wants to correspond with, with a few added every week, do you have to create a filter with 100 emails in it?
(but everything else getting filtered)

Looks my friend,

I agreed it with you. since yahoo is free and we have to follow their policy, you may contact yahoo as well. Because for this we can only use what they offer us unless you contact them and maybe pay for it.

Thanks and hope you will succeed

Regards
Chretien
