No, we’re not talking about the wonderful Monty Python sketch so lovingly put to song. Spam in your inbox is a nuisance and sometimes even downright infuriating. But dealing with Spam has just got a whole lot easier in the new Yahoo! Mail Beta.
Never open another spam message again:
The all-new Yahoo! Mail lets you zap spam messages without even having to open them. One click and it’s off to the spam folder for those unsolicited emails. Just highlight an email (or multiple emails using the checkboxes), then point your mouse to the button labeled “Spam” at the top of your inbox, then click that button and the message(s) is moved to your spam folder (not only that, but you’ve just reported that email address as spam and all future messages from that address will go directly to your spam folder).
Delete it all with one click:
Our enhanced SpamGuard automatically detects and directs spam into your Spam folder. With SpamGuard, your inbox won’t get bogged down with all those spam emails. And if you want to delete all spam messages with one click of the mouse, just click that “Empty” link next to the Spam folder. You never even have to open it to delete it.
What else can I do?
With the new Yahoo! Mail Beta, you’ve got options. Not only are we taking spam seriously here, but we also want to give you the tools to manage spam effectively and correctly. See that “Options” link hanging out in the top right corner? Click it and then click Mail Options.
In the left column, click the link called “Spam”. From here you can tell SpamGuard what to do with the unwanted mail that you get. You can choose how often to empty the Spam folder, and set up blocked email addresses.
What’s the bottom line?
When it comes to Spam, with the new Yahoo! Mail Beta, you’re in control. With our SpamGuard filter and greater consumer awareness you’re more protected from Spam than ever. Of course if you want to order it in a restaurant, that’s your choice!
