    You rock ! Thanks for all if the info. I’ve stopped using my yahoo acct because of the garbage it let’s thru. Gmail catches most everything. I need help, every time I try to enter”contest, etc) known legit sites.. Abc/CBS/extra TV etc and it always tells me my email is not correct .. I am losing mymind! This happens on my Android (no PC access). Could they be phishing sites (not taking my gmail acct ) or is it me ? Thanks for your help!
