are you asking how to stop SPAM?!? If anyone here knew that, we'd be bizillionaires!

Are you downloading this yahoo mail to your local (linux) mailbox? If so, you can use procmail to send all mail FROM: .*microsoft to /dev/null. You can even send a "user not found" message if you like back to the sender, though these are usually forged addresses so they just come back to you.

If you are reading on Yahoo, just use their spam filters to stick all microsoft mail in the spam "folder".
