      By default Yahoo downloads all the spam it detects to the inbox on your client (assuming you are using a client and not webmail).

      You can change this behavior by loging on to the webmail and choosing "mail options" from the little sun icon in the top right hand corner.

      Then choose Pop & Forwarding and from there you have 3 options for how it handles spam.

      They must be having fun at sky/yahoo... After getting my emails redelivered and loads of junk..I've not had any emails delivered to my outlook inbox for two days! Only way I can see them is by using web mail.

      You could always install the Yahoo Mail app on your iphone and ipad and login with your sky email address and password.
