I have 2 questions relating to my Yahoo email account:

1.Help! I am being spammed! I am looking for a WEB-BASED anti-spam
program that can stop or atleast control the amount of spam that is
coming into my Yahoo email account.

I know that Yahoo offers the latest anti-spam stuff, like the Spam
Guard and Address guard, but I still receive dozens of spam every day.
I also click the "spam" button and no longer give my address to the
"unsuscribe" link.  Since I have a very old account with them, it
doesn't offer the BULK FOLDER option, so everything comes into my
INBOX. Arrgh....

I've researched programs that attack spam, like QURB, but they are
designed for CLIENT-BASED email programs. SO again, are there any
programs for Yahoo specifically that effectively eliminate most spam?

2. I have the option to put an imbedded picture(SIGNATURE)using my
Yahoo email account with Internet Explorer, but since I primarily use
FIREFOX, I'd like to have the signature option there, too. I
researched it, and there IS an extension for "signatures" in Firefox,
however when you try and provide the HTML link for the image, it does
not embed in the email as with INTERNET EXPLORER. Is there a real way
to get this cool feature in Firefox or do we have to wait for a later

Thanks so much!
There is no answer at this time.

Hi there, the new beta 15 of firefoz has just come out - Try that out to see if supports yout HTML
question. As for spam on web based email systems, sadly, only the
provider ( yahoo in your case ) can give you spam fixes. The easiest
thing would be to incorporate your Yahoo emnail into Outlook Express
and use a SPAM program designed for application based programs.
