The best you can do is mark them as spam and get the emails directed into your spam folder; I've not heard of any way to stop individuals sending the email.

Is it a particular individual or an variety of problems?

How do I block mail from a specific sender? Can I un-block it later?

Yahoo! Mail makes it easy to block unwanted messages from a known address. It's just as easy to remove the block if you want to.

Here's how to add a block to an email address:

1. Click Options in the upper-right corner of your Yahoo! Mail page.
2. From the list on the left, click Spam.
3. In the middle of this page, in the space provided in the "Blocked Addresses" section, enter the email address from which you don't want to receive mail.
4. Click Add.
5. The address now appears on your list of blocked addresses.

Yahoo! Mail offers up to 500 blocked email addresses. You can see how many of your blocked addresses you're using beside the list – for example, “4 of 500 used”.

You can also un-block addresses whenever you want.

To remove a block from an address:

1. From the Blocked Addresses list, click the address you wish to remove.
2. Click Remove beside your the Blocked Addresses list.

After removing an address from your Blocked Addresses list, you'll be able to receive mail from that address.

This isn't a great way to deal with spam, though, because spammers keep changing their From address and other information.

Rather than hijacking somebody else's thread, you'll get a quicker response if you start your own thread
