Email Spam

AT&T is no longer removing Spam in my mail.  I am getting more than a dozen Spams a day in my mail.  Am I to understand AT&T will no longer provide this service unless I pay extra money for it?

No, that's not the case.  In fact, the Yahoo Mail Plus service has absolutely no effect on the spam filtering. 

If you look through the posts in this forum you'll see a large number that deal with this same spam flood issue.

The thing you're seeing is a situation that's been happening all year, where the Yahoo server-side spam filters seem to get disabled, then weeks later they get re-enabled, only to repeat the cycle.  Right now they seem to be off.
