Useful Tips:

  • Do not enter email addresses in both the Sender and Recipient fields as Yahoo! will only filter in emails that meet both criteria
  • In both the Sender and Recipient fields, you can enter either a specific email address or an entire domain
  • Create a new filter for each domain or email address you want to whitelist
