yahoo mail sucks big time, and their spam filtering is terrible

my local spamassassin is better
Yahoo spam filter is awesome if you take the time to work with it.

My ISP also relies on Yahoo for email and I find it's worse that a
decent email app. Previously, I was able to disable their spam filter,
but for the past few months I can't. It often puts my email into the
"Bulk mail" folder, including posts from this list. What's worse, I
can't use my email app to mark it not spam. I have to use a browser to
connect to the mail server and mark it there.

Buncha Yahoos!!! ;-)
Just like Thunderbird you have to teach it what you think is spam.

I took the time to do it and on average only one or two spam messages get
through to my computer a month. So, it does work if you work with it.
only I download my email, fetchmail, and read locally. I do not want to
*mess* with yahoo's broken spam filter at all. I *only* access it with a
web client in order to un-spam most of what yahoo decides for me. and
only use yahoo mail because at&t does.

I download my mail also. The way you teach Yahoo what isand what isn't is to not download continuously for a short time. Go to Yahoo webmail and choose what you want to see in your Thunderbird inbox and what you don't. In a short time Yahoo starts sorting it on it's own.

What I see is that you want it to work without putting in the time to make it work. It doesn't happen that way.

Of cabbages-and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot-
And whether pigs have wings."
