Hi:

Pretty much everyone gets spam like that, but you need to mark each one of those as spam. Don't know which email client you're using, but some have it so you can select all and then click block ot spam button. It will not stop the spam, but the more examples you submit as spam, the better the email client's spam filter works to send those to the spam/bulk folder. Only other alternative is to close that account out. It may have been picked up by spambots somewhere on the Internet where you may have posted your email address.

Yahoo is bad about spam passing though it, but at least it is being put in the correct folder. Just select all and delete after you've checked that there isn't anything that got marked as spam by mistake. That's about all you can do. I have yahoo and gmail accounts and both fill up the Bulk folders.
