I have been using Yahoo mail for years and all the detected Spam has always gone into my outlook Express SPAM folder. Well over the past month or so I have noticed that this Spam just appears in my Inbox but when I log onto Yahoo Mail, online, it's in the SPAM folder there?

Your Outlook Express has been set with a mail rule to filter SPAM into its own SPAM folder. To do this it looks at the subject on the email and filters anything with [Bulk] in this field. It appears that your Yahoo Mail have stopped adding this marker to the emails it flags as SPAM.

Looking at the settings in Yahoo Mail, online, it appears that you have not selected POP forwarding.
This is rather odd as you ARE receiving the emails?
Anyhow I have enable the POP forwarding.

The relevant bit for you is that there are 3 options under this field:
> Don't POP spam
> Include spam messages
> Include spam messages and add [Bulk] as a prefix to the subject line

Obviously I have now selected the last option to add [BULK].
Your Outlook Express should now be able to filter the spam as before. I assume that either Yahoo mail have recently changed these settings or that you accidentally changed them.
