How do I turn off filtering?

Att-Yahoo email filtering is blocking too many legitimate messages. How can I turn it off?

I wanted to turn off $oam filtering but just mentioning the word $pam was in violation of community rules.

Let's get those emails to you, @Inemailhell!

 

If a lot of emails coming from the same senders, you can create a filter for any emails that contain the name or domain of the sender, You can take these steps to do so:

  1. Log into your Yahoo maill and access your inbox
  2. Click the settings icon then more settings (It will be near the upper right portion of your inbox)
  3. Click Filters
  4. Click Add new Filters
  5. Select how you want it to filter, the rules, and what mailbox they will appear in (Spam, Inbox, Etc.)
  6. Click Save

Let us know if this helps with the emails that come in!

I added a filter that should, in theory, move everything to the inbox.  I'll see if that works.  There really should be an easier way to turn off spam filtering.

What I am seeing is that the first attempt to retrieve the email (usually from my iPhone) can retrieve the message header before the message is moved to spam.  After that has happened, the rest of the message can no longer be retrieved by iPhone email on that or another device such as a second phone or Windows PC running Outlook.  It is as though the header can be retrieved once, and the message body not at all unless using the web mail interface. The email $pam filter also seems to flag anything sent to a list of recipients (I don't know how large a list triggers this) as $pam.  

 

I end up missing important emails unless I access the web interface, which makes email retrieval on my iPhone useless, or at least unreliable.

We shouldn't have to resort to programming filters to turn spam filtering off, and we need more control over how aggressive the automatic filters behave.
