The mail did not go to Spam folder. I have gone through the spam folder. It's not there. What do you think I can do next?
Tech Support Specialist: namstech, Electrical Engineer replied 7 years ago

If you remember the subject or senders name that appeared on the mail, you can try mail search option.

I do not know how to unblock an address. I have tried to unblock it by going to Option button, then I clicked the spam button. The email address that I accidentally added as spam was not listed. Infact, no email address was listed.

The problem has not been solved yet, Smile. It looks to me that when a mail is highlighted and the SPAM button is clicked, the mail goes into immediate oblivion. No track. And the email address from where the mail is originated is not logged by Yahoo in the Spam list.

That it means is that clicking the SPAM button on any email is a one-way ticket: the email where the source originated will never be able to send you emails anymore. So far, we have not been able to figure a way to give a return ticket to this process. Any idea yet?

Tech Support Specialist: Smile, Computer Enthusiast replied 7 years ago
I want you to take help from any technical friend of yours on this with my solution.

That should help you.

I'm not sure this solves my problem. Is it fair for you to be paid while my problem has not been solved. You've pushed the problem back to me and you want to be paid. Huh??

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer~!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you with your question.

Since the email address that that particular email came from isn't in the block senders list I really don't think that all future emails from that email address will be blocked or just disappear into oblivion. Unfortunately that email if it was permanently deleted though isn't recoverable without contacting yahoo support. If that was an important email though i'm guessing you know who the sender is. What you can do is contact the sender and have them re-send/re-forward the email back to you and it should come back into your inbox again where you can read it. If by chance it does go into your spam folder now though because it was marked as spam then you should now be able to select the email and click on "not spam". This seems like the only possible solution at this point.

Thanks,
Ryan B.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX email came from a government organization so it can't be resent. To find a solution to the problem, I carried out an additional experiment. I have two email addresses: yahoo and netzero. I sent an email from the netzero to yahoo. The email came through. In the yahoo inbox, I marked the netzero email as spam. I did this deliberately. The email disappeared. I checked it in the spam folder. It was not there. I went to the Option -> More Options... -> Spam menu path. I did not see my netzero address (or any other address that I had marked as spam including the email from the US govt) in the list of blocked emails.

 

I have sent several emails from my netzero account to the yahoo account. None of them ever made it again. I had even included the netzero email address into my yahoo contacts. Yet, no email from netzero ever shows up in yahoo: (Inbox or Spam folder). Like I said, yahoo seems to delete the emails into oblivion.

 

Seems to me that Yahoo has a bug in spam management. You can independently carry out a similar experiment like the one I have just done. Marking an email as spam seems to issue a one way ticket to Planet Oblivion. The system will not let you change your mind. What do you think?

Tech Support Specialist: Ryan B., Support Specialist replied 7 years ago
Thank you for the quick reply. Their seems to be a bug with your account. I did go into my yahoo account and took a spam message that made it past the filter into my inbox and I selected it and marked it as spam and it went straight to the spam filter and didn't delete permanently. I think in this case you will need to contact yahoo customer care directly from the link below explaining the issue so they can get your account looked at.

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
