Solved SPAM settings for emails

Specs: Windows 10, 8 GB
Emails from someone I've been emailing with for over 8 years are now suddenly being put into my SPAM folder. How can I fix this? I didn't change any settings on my email. I've already gone into one of her emails and clicked on More, then Filter, then move any emails that come from her email address to Inbox but they continue to be put into SPAM folder.

I find on occasion, and for no apparent logical cause/reason, that yahoo dumps perfectly good, sound, safe email into the spam box. It does this intermittently and will let one email through into my inbox, and dumps another into spam; yet both are from the same sender and account, and may even be just minutes apart in transmission.

This applies to yahoo mail itself, and also to bt.yahoo and even its replacement bt.com - which is still switching all bt.yahoo accounts over to bt.com. That was halted over year ago as the whole transfer was a total mess; passwords lost on servers, or deemed incorrect - even temp password given by bt!

As in previous posts here, I seriously doubt that yahoo will survive in the long term. It's become a mess; poor to atrocious tech support; constant failures of mail and messenger servers; varable functionality across Mac OS X, and iOS; and also windows at times. Sometimes it work OK then later it doesn't and then it does again; and so on...

So the changes/renewal your sender made may be pure coincidence, or may have been necessary due to yahoo screwing up their systems - again!

What email client are you using?

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

Hi, Jennifer SUMN. My email is Yahoo and the person that's sending me stuff that's going into my SPAM folder is a verizon.net email address.

There's something in the email that's being detected as spam. Does your friend have a special signature with a fancy font, or image, or business web address that may trigger the spam filter?

BTW, if you added her address to the filter list, that's why her emails are going to the spam folder.

Thank you, Jennifer SUMN, for telling me about a signature on the incoming emails. The person deleted her signature and re-set it and they're now coming through to my Yahoo account again. Not sure why this hasn't been a problem for the past eight years, but hopefully it's fixed now. Thanks again.
