How does Verizon Yahoo for DSL fight email spam?
Verizon Yahoo for DSL Mail offers powerful protection through SpamGuard Plus, which redirects junk mail into a bulk mail folder. Additionally, Verizon Yahoo DSL members can further improve the spam filtering capability by tagging those messages that are considered spam. Over time, the Verizon Yahoo DSL spam filter learns what you personally consider to be spam, and will become that much more effective. Verizon Yahoo DSL offers AddressGuard, a premium spam feature that allows you to create hundreds of disposable email addresses. Instead of giving out your permanent email address, for example, you can give out a disposable email address. If the disposable Verizon Yahoo email address gets abused, you simply eliminate it to stop the spam.
Do I need to use Yahoo if I already have a Yahoo email account?

Verizon recommends that you give your existing email@example.com account the added benefits of your new Verizon Yahoo. This is done at no additional charge by linking your accounts during the registration process (see installation kit for details). By linking you get additional email storage, premium email spam protection, premium email virus protection, and more. Verizon Yahoo linked accounts will also be able to receive messages from multiple email accounts, including @verizon.net and @yahoo.com, in a single email inbox.
