The best way to avoid having those who email you considered Junk is to add the senders to your contact list or email address book.
Spam filters often use these as clues to the likelihood of something being spam - if the sender is in your mail provider's address book then the message is less likely to be considered spam.
Below are some details of how to tell your Mail provider that a particular sender is not a 'spammer'!
Here are the steps for telling Yahoo not to treat valid senders as JUNK.
- Navigate to Yahoo Mail via your Web Browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer etc) - Click here to go to the sign-in page for Yahoo
- Log in to your Yahoo account
- Click the "Spam" folder. Junk emails are stored in this folder.
- Click the email that was wrongfully treated as junk mail to open it.
- Click the "Not Spam" button in the toolbox to immediately send the email to the Inbox folder. Emails from the same sender will not be treated as junk mail anymore and will be sent to the Inbox folder.
