Trying to block or filter spam emails is a losing battle since the spammers can make small changes so their spam will evade your filters. This leads to a never-ending cycle of you creating new filters every time a spam mail slips through. The best strategy is to mark each email as spam so Yahoo's Spamguard will improve over time. You can do this by right-clicking on the spam email and then left-clicking on the option "This is Spam". Here's some articles on how to fight the good fight against spam.
