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.

Yes, I found them, and none seemed to apply. I definitely don't want to turn off spam filtering altogether or I'll receive every conceivable kind of junk imaginable and I get enough legitimate e-mail as is without that kind of hassle. Too many list subscriptions, ya know.

What's strange about it is that I'd been receiving messages from some people, specific family members, friends and business associates in fact, for years, and all of a sudden the spam filter throws their messages in the bulk folder. What's really annoying is that I couldn't find a way to put specific e-mail addresses on a "white list" and have all of their messages moved en masse. I had to mark individual messages as "not spam" and move them to my inbox manually. What a pain! If there's an easy way to do what I describe, let me know.
