SPAMGUARD not working

Starting about six weeks ago I suddenly started getting inundated with SPAM after not receiving a single piece in years. I turned Spamguard on and off but it didn't do anything.

 

Something must have changed at the Yahoo! end of things and I'm getting extremeley fruststrated. What can the problem possibly be?

Re: SPAMGUARD not working

ATTAlexCM you keep giving links to people about spamguard not working

Obviously something changed on the ATT/Yahoo end so spamguard doesn't work anymore.. Instead of a canned response can you give a real answer?

Wow....I thought it was just my bad luck. About 2 weeks ago, the spam started showing up like crazy in my Inbox - especially very early in the morning hours (5 am). It figures that something must have changed at ATT/Yahoo. Please fix this.

Re: SPAMGUARD not working

I am having the same problem. Getting too many spams by the minute and many with a virus attached hurting my computer.

 

I am tired of this.
