or just that person? very interesting. I've been having problems with yahoo also, I thought it was just because I was in Germany. (2 yahoo accs in .de and 2 in .com, yes, it does make a difference) if you want, e-mail me to test it @ (almost oops) PM me, and I'll give you my @yahoo e-mail add.
(eddited to add: when I get up in the morn.)

So are most free accounts

by Oz_Media In reply to yahoo email

Most free online accounts are blacklisted by someone. That's one reason our company doesn't accept dealer apps from people with free domains.

Blacklisting SHOULD only be a very small part of your spam filtering though, RBLS are so far from reliable it's not funny. I used to use a few RBLs as a third check in a spam system I setup, but only with VERY low weights to it so as not to topple good mail.

Blacklisting services are just a bad idea in general. They tend to result in an unacceptably high incidence of false positives.

As a lightly weighted (second or third) check on a reliable antispam system, they are OKAY but need ot be carefully weighted and monitored for false positives.
