it’s not you, it’s Yahoo

For those of you who are not on the email deliverability front lines, you may have been wondering why your email to Yahoo addresses hasn’t been getting through all that reliably recently.

As it turns out, the folks at Yahoo Mail apparently changed their spam filtering system sometime mid-October. Here’s a great blog entry detailing the Yahoo issues.

Of course, I’ve been hearing that mail admins haven’t been getting helpful responses from Yahoo about this, in addition to the complete lack of documentation about the problem.

Personally, I’ve seen emails sent during the past few days take around 24 hours or so to reach the Yahoo mailbox I was sending to.
