Yahoo mail uses combination of bulk mail folders and filters. If you are not receiving your MedPulse, check your “Bulk Mail,” locate the filtered MedPulse newsletter, and choose "this is not Spam," next to the "From" field.

Or to create filter for your MedPulse newsletter:

In Yahoo mail, click the "Mail Options" link on the top-right navigation bar, and then choose "Filters" located on the left side of the page, under the Spam column.

To create a new filter, click the "Add Filter" link on the Filters page.

  • Choose the field you want to match in the incoming message. For example, select the one of the following headers: From, To/Cc, Subject, or Body to match.
  • Choose the criterion by which you want a match to be made. For example: contains, ends with.
  • Enter the text string to compare. For example:
  • Choose the destination folder to which you would like the message delivered. For example: Medpulse. Note you can create a folder by selecting [new folder].
  • If you have more than one filter, you'll also see "up" and "down" arrrows to the right of the filter list. Use these buttons to select the placement of your new filter within your existing sequence of filters. Filter order is important because Filter 1 will be the first filter applied to an incoming message, Filter 2 will be the next, and so on until a match is made or all filters are passed. If no filters match an incoming message, it will be delivered to your inbox.

Be sure to click the "Add Filter" button to put your new filter into effect, after you've selected a folder in which to file the e-mail.
