Default website signups landing in Yahoo spam box

Hi all,
I'm hoping someone can help me. The spam box in Yahoo intermittently catches the "mail to" (actually a .php form) that the webmaster has set up on a business site for folks to submit their name/address to be on a mailing list. Sometimes other mail I want ends up there as well - for no apparent reason.

This means that these signups go into the spam box, do not show up in my desktop outlook box and stay there until I check the spam box online in Yahoo or get deleted in a month.

I know I can probably add the sender as a contact in the address book and avoid this, but I don't know who to add. Do I use the domain name - i.e. When these arrive in my box, they just show the seners first name as the sender. The form used is "http://FormToEmail.com"

Thanks for your help

Can you set up filters in Yahoo? If so, you should be able to filter all emails with the subject, "FormToEmail Comments" into a folder or something.

I'm not sure. I've never set up filters for fields like that, but I'll sure look into it. Thanks so much for answering.

Under Mail Options, you can set up filters
