Bitdefender premium must have sold my e-mail address to a hundred sites. I am getting tons of spam that I never got before paying for upgrade. Wish I hadn't bought it now.
Thanks for the reply. Yes there is a way and that is blocking the address in yahoo which will either stop the spam from getting into inbox or directly move the spam email to your spam folder.
Kindly follow the link by yahoo to block the address in yahoo mail : https://safety.yahoo.com/SafetyGuides/Mail/index.htm

I have sent these spam messages to the yahoo mail spam folder and then clicked on block these senders and erase messages from spam folder. Still getting more from different senders. Everything from FedEx, USPS, Lowe's, Wal-mart Sams club, Walgreen, CVS, etc. etc. Bitdefender does not seem to be blocking anything.
Just got several more. metayou.org.uk, national concealed Academy also an org.uk address. Is there a way I can block all org.uk mail?
Also, I keep getting referred to Bitdefender tool bar. I don't have a Bitdefender toolbar on my screen for Firefox or when I open yahoo mail. No sign of anything except the small Bitdefender icon for anti tracker in the upper right corner.
can you share the screenshot.
Rest talking about the anti tracker, the extension is by default installed by bitdefender 2020 product line to block trackers from website.
I tried but I can't get the screen shot to transfer. I give up. I did set mail to block all org.uk incoming mail. See if that works. If not, I will probably dump Bitdefender and eat my loss. I should have stuck with the free version.
It does appear that going to yahoo mail and blocking all emails containing org.uk is working. Only got one today. Hopefully this will continue to block them. Thanks Flexx for all your suggestions and help.
Happy to know that your issue is getting resolved.
