How to block emails from a domain with yahoo?

Question: How to block emails from a domain with yahoo?

I don't think it can be done...I am getting increasing emails to my main email address and I can't change it due to the fact all of my contacts for years and years have it...forwarding to a new one would cause the same problem wouldn't it?

It's that damn, some french site that Yahoo won't recognize as spam yet. Any ideas or solutions?

Preferred Solution: How to block emails from a domain with yahoo?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a domain www vacationholiday net. If I put my domain link into my email- from my (yahoo) account the link gets redirected. However it only gets redirected if the receiver is also at

If I put for example in the same email, or alone, that link is not redirected. If i send a cc of the email to someone that does not use ( the link to my domain is not redirected.

I have run antivirus scans AVG and Threatfire with no resulting finding of virus or malware.

I tried to send the same emails with Outlook instead of IE, but the emails to yahoo addresses were also diverted.

Any ideas would be very appreciated. I don't want anyone to get to the tastypill site from my emails and I don't know what other urls I may put in my emails that may trigger this problem.

Here is a good one for you guys. I am a bit stumped. It could be something rather simple.

I have a client with SBS2003 R2. They have 6 users. 5 are in the office, one is remote. This remote address does not use outlook or connect via VPN to the server. The SBS uses Microsofts IMAP connector and downloads the email to the SBS. The 5 users in house can email each other, other people outside the domain, but not the 1 remote user. They all have the same address. My understanding is that the emails to her are resolving locally, she does have a user account on the server (not a pop3 connector acct). Should I just remove her email address from her user account?

Google found me this.;en-us;300681

I tried Method 1 with no success, but was unsure if I should attempt Method 2?

Answer:SBS2003 R2- user not in sbs domain not recieving emails from users inside the domain

Not clear on your you have 6x users on your SBS box? 5x in house, and 1x at a satellite branch that does not authenticate to the domain.

And you're using the POP3 connector to pull e-mail from a mailhost out there which houses the POP3 mailboxes?

Is the default recipient policy of the Exchange server set to this ""?

The first 5x users can send/receive locally to the domain.local addresses? Did you manually add a default SMTP address for each user for

Can e-mails to this 6th person show up in her inbox if you check from OWA?

Do you see what happens to e-mails for this 6th person in Exchange Message Tracking Center?

Hey everyone,

I've been trying to solve this for a while now. I'd like to block all incoming emails from a specific domain, but every email i receive that i'd like to block has a different name and domain, with just the same .mobi, . biz or .ru address at the end. Example:
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

the only thing that always stays the same is the ending, so i'd like to just block every email from .mobi, .biz and .ru but i'm unsure how to do this! can anyone help me out? The only thing i can seem to do is block each individual email, but since they change the address each time and i only receive one email from each address, doing it that way is completely pointless.

thanks in advance for the help!

Answer:How to block an entire domain in Windows Live Mail?

Well, here's my suggestion. I suggest the procedure explained at except that you try using an asterisk (*) as a wildcard along with the top level domain.

Trying to block spammy emails (using Outlook Express) which have a variety of sender's addresses. If I block using these, it doesn't work as the addresses keep changingCan you use the "Received: From" as seen in the email properties?The ones I'm getting are consistently Any ideas?

Answer:Can I block emails using "Received: From"

If I remember correctly, it's not possible to block a domain in OE, anyway the domain probably changes as well, montyburns. Probably the best thing to do is use something like Mailwasher click here or ePrompter click here to vet the incoming emails. At least using one of those utilities, you wont have to download the emails to your computer before deleting. Those utilities sit between your email server and your computer, letting you know what emails are waiting to download hence letting you decide whether to download or delete them from the server, they can also be flagged up for deletion by adding them (and their domains) to the block senders list. Not an optimum solution I'm afraid but it works well.

In the last week or so I've been hit with a ton of BS scam emails. 1 type of email is just a name "Joe" with no subject line & no body of the email. It has an (pdf) attachment like "payment.pdf" or "schedule.pdf". I figure they are just junk emails & I delete them. The problem is (1) I get several everyday now. (2) I run a small biz & don't want to accidentailly delete an important message or file someone is sending me. (I know they should say who they are when they send it, but you'd be surprised how many people will send you a file you asked for w/o any extra info) So I can't filter emails based on the fact they have a pdf attachment. The other scam I'm getting is a ton of "Greetingcard" type emails. I've figured out how to filter/delete most of them, but they still are annoying. I hope mozilla will figure out how to stop these type of emails from being sent.

2) Then down below where your rule shows the blue letters, click on them. When the box comes up, choose options. You will see 2 radio buttons:

Message contains the words below
Message does not contain the words below

Choose Message does not contain the words below..

When I click on the blue letters it just gives me the choice to add more letters there is no Options selection in there at all. I tried both Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003 hooked up to an exchange server and a pop server both and neither had the options choice.

Any thoughts?

I am still receiving around 20 spam mail a day although I've been trying my very best to avoid junk mail.

The titles of the junk emails are mostly similar, for example "Please rate my body". or "Russian Sexy Girls". Although they have gone to Junk section, it still causes a lot of inconvenience to me.

Hey, I'd like to know if I can block the email with titles of certain phrases? For example, I want to block the emails or senders with phrases "rate my body" because they are junk 99.9% of the time, but don't block the mail if there is only "rate" or "body" in the title or "Hi, kenny, please rate the progress of your body building". Because it may be the specified email that comes from my Gym club. Or, for example, block only "Russian sexy girls" but not "Russian sexy men with girls". Block only phrases

Thank you

I have noticed on many occassions that when people send me an email to our business email account it says something like -

"[email protected] on behalf of Joe Blogs <[email protected]"

How do people do this?

I can see one advantage of doing this because I could use any computer or mobile device to log into my Gmail account and check my business emails. Our current set up would require me to lug around my laptop.

Does this have something to do with the domain mapping options?

Are there any disadvantages to doing it this way? Will the original email still 'live' on our business server so it can be retrieved via Outlook 2010?

Any help or direction would be appreciated!

Hi All,

This is my first post on this site - I've been trying to figure what might be the cause of my problem, searched Google, received no help from my mail server host and so have turned to you guys.

I have an Asus F5 laptop with Vista Business and using Windows Mail for my email, with eM Client () on the same machine. My PC is a totally separate XP SP2 machine and has eM Client.

Suppose I work for "A Company", whose email addresses end in "". The company's website and mail is hosted by an external 3rd party. It's a POP3 / SMTP setup and has been working fine up until I ran into my issue (below).

The issue arose around the same time that I installed iTunes after getting an iPhone (and set the iPhone up to receive mails). A business colleague did the same thing and does not have the issue I have.

Supporting info and my issue:

1. Webmail:
I can send and receive emails to / from anyone: the outside world and domain - no problems.

2. iPhone:
I can send and receive emails to / from anyone: the outside world and domain - no problems.

3a. Laptop - Windows Mail application AND eM Client (a different email application), neither of which are web-based:
I can send and receive emails to / from anyone in the outside world - i.e. they DON'T have an domain email address
I can receive emails from anyone with an domain email address
Emails I send to people with an aco... Read more

Answer:Emails sent to same domain not arriving

I've done some further experimentation and have some more information that may help identify the problem, and hopefully lead to it getting sorted.

If I receive an email from someone outside "" and I reply and CC someone who IS from "", the CC'd person gets the email. Subsequent replies back and forth then work OK - even without the original external person being on the email.

So it seems that it's just new emails I create to people with the same email domain as me. Why would that occur across different applications on different machines?

How do I exit Yahoo! Messenger?

Hit the left soft key ?Options? and scroll to Exit which is the last menu item. Hit ok

You will then be presented with 2 ways to exit Yahoo Messenger

1. Exit and stay signed in: this allows you to retain your current presence status but continue to use other functionality within your phone such as sending an SMS or MMS. When you have a new IM arrive you will be notified by an SMS that will pop up on your handset and inform you that you have a new IM and autolaunch you into the IM client.
2. Sign off from Yahoo!: this means that you will be permanently exited from Y! Messenger until you sign back in again therefore you will appear offline to your contacts.

Can I exit the application and remain logged in so people can still contact me via IM?

Yes you can exit the application so as to use other function on your phone and remain logged in. This means that when someone tries to contact you via IM you will receive a pop screen informing you that someone has tried to contact you and will direct you back to the IM

A friend cannot log into their Yahoo email account.
--- I suspect they have not been able to do so at least 6 months, maybe even up to a year.
--- They do not know when the issue started so I have to guess based on what they have told me.
--- They do not know what their password was. "Well they have umpteen choices of what it could be".
--- When whatever started to go wrong they kept on trying to log-in so many times they probably might have set a Guinness World Record.
They were using an XP computer and it crashed on them about 3 months and haven't tried to access their account since then.
--- They asked me to fix their XP computer but I do not help anyone fix an outdated & unsupported OS.
--- They just bought a Windows 10 laptop and still cannot log-in to their Yahoo email account and most likely extended their Guinness World Record.

Today, according to BBC News and other online news reports, the company is preventing some of its web email users from accessing their messages if they have an ad blocker installed.

The first time I get one of these alerts it's goodbye Yahoo. 

Answer:Yahoo blocking email access to those who block adverts:GrahamCluley

There are other issues with Yahoo e-mail as well (unless they've changed their policies since I last looked into this).   They do not allow the executor of an individual's estate to access that person's e-mail account and to close it.  While this may seem silly to be concerned about to some it often turns out to be a serious issue, particularly for those of us who've gone primarily paperless for all sorts of billing and payments.  It's essential that an executor of an estate have access to all of the "papers and effects" of the deceased.  This is one of the reasons I stopped using my Yahoo account a number of years ago.  I really should just close it.

Answer:Emails for a small business with a custom domain

It all depends on if the hosting he has offers email if that's the case then he would add the email addresses at the hosting control panel.

If he has no mail on his web hosting then I'd go for Google apps free, that will allow you to setup mail for your domain for up-to 10 users Google Apps helps groups build communities ? Google Apps

To setup something like the google option you will need to edit the MX records for the domain, but I think they explain it all quite well while running through the setup.

Hi Guys,

having an issue that some of the users on our domain have been receiving emails sent from external senders but they appear as having been sent from our domain - "on behalf" of the external users address.

i.e. our domain is say -
some users are receiving email from say [email protected] however, the message they receive appears to come from [email protected] - on behalf of [email protected]

I am quite confused as to how this is happening since "[email protected]" is not a user on our exchange, nor is the email applied anywhere.
Even if they were using SMTP through the exchange server somehow - our exchange only allows mail to be sent from certain IP addresses, and only allows relay from certain IP's.

Does anyone know how or why this kind of thing is happening and how to put a stop to it?

I have tried searching the net for an explanation but can't seem to find something similar.

thanks in advance for any help.

Answer:Solved: Exchange 2010 - Receiving emails from own domain?

Not even been up long and i have found out what was causing this.

Our externally hosted website (which had access to our exchange) had been setup to use SMTP to send email from the contact form on the site.
All these emails were coming from there through our exchange and using randomly generated email addresses from our own domain to send these emails.

We have now updated this so it uses a generic email address, so not to cause anymore confusion of receiving emails from random addresses which look like they are on our domain.

The STRANGE thing is other email accounts work fine if set up here (using the same kind of ports etc) and our work emails receive fine through other internet connections!
We have been in contact with both the company that provides our internet connection (we have two connections with them, one for pc’s & laptops and one for the phone system - which I've also tested with our email unsuccessfully) and the company that provides the email service.

Companies will soon have to buy the electronic equivalent of a postage stamp if they want to be certain that their e-mail will be delivered to many of their customers.

America Online and Yahoo, two of the world's largest providers of e-mail accounts, are about to start using a system that gives preferential treatment to messages from companies that pay from 1/4 of a cent to a penny each to have them delivered. The senders must promise to contact only people who have agreed to receive their messages, or risk being blocked entirely.

The Internet companies say that this will help them identify legitimate mail and cut down on junk e-mail, identity-theft scams and other scourges that plague users of their services. They also stand to earn millions of dollars a year from the system if it is widely adopted.

AOL and Yahoo will still accept e-mail from senders who have not paid, but the paid messages will be given special treatment. On AOL, for example, they will go straight to users' main mailboxes, and will not have to pass the gantlet of spam filters that could divert them to a junk-mail folder or strip them of images and Web links. As is the case now, mail arriving from addresses that users have added to their AOL address books will not be treated as spam.

Yahoo and AOL say the new system is a way to restore some order to e-mail, which, because of spam and worries about online scams, has become an increasingly unreliable way for companies to reach their customers, ev... Read more
