Spam still shows up and is not being immediately deleted

Unfortunately I fell for the target gift card scam. Half way through the registration process I figured it was not legit and stopped, never clicked the submit button, and ever since then I get about 20 spam messages a day. I went to the options panel for spam and selected to immediately empty the spam folder but I still get spam and have to manually delete them. I'm running yahoo classic on an XP pro system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh-no... I'm sorry to hear that rusty shackleferd.  The following solutions provide tips and how to report SPAM emails to AT&T...

 

Tips to avoid email spam

 

Protect yourself from email phishing and fake websites

 

How do I block mail from a specific sender? Can I un-block it later?
