Hi Tom -- sorry this is a month late -- you probably solved this problem 
already -- but there are options on yahoo mail for controling spam 
filtering, and even turning off all spam filtering.
Did you find these? They are in the mail options.
Good luck and happy mailing.
(You notice I also have a yahoo account so have dealth with this myself)

Subject: [guispeak] Yahoo Mail's Spam Filter Runs Amok


Hi,
I have a question about Yahoo! mail.  My pacbell.net e-mail account uses
Yahoo's pop and smtp servers, and I connect to them through Outlook Express,
which is all fine and dandy, no problem there.

However, occasionally I find out that some e-mail that should be coming
directly to my inbox gets routed to my bulk mail folder up on Yahoo's
server, which is where spam typically goes. Yahoo's spam filter is
overzealous, running amok, and legitimate e-mail's not getting through to my
inbox.

So I have to sign on to Yahoo's mail page to see what's in the bulk folder.
The last time that I did this, yesterday, in fact, I found out that I had at
least 300 messages in the bulk folder, most of which was not spam. In the
past, when I've dealt with this, I opened individual messages, clicked on
the button labeled ""Not Spam" and the messages get routed to my inbox where
they should have been in the first place.  Needless to say, it's a real pain
to have to do it that way.  So, the crux of the issue is how to mark large
numbers of messages without opening them and then tell Yahoo that they're
not spam and move them to my inbox, where I can deal with them using Outlook
Express.  Does anybody know how to do this?

Oh yeah, one more thing:  I'm not using Yahoo's newer interface, just the
old-style classic look and feel.

Thanks in advance.

Tom
