Yahoo Email Deliverability (update)

Posted by joy

Chuq blogged about the Yahoo problems, and happened to solicit a good comment from an ISP admin who is active on NANOG.

With some testing today, a Yahoo account I have was accepting email from a domain that doesn’t mail all that often. Some mail that I receive on a daily basis which usually gets routed to the spam folder made it to the spam folder at the usual time.

However, mail that I sent from a domain which has significant volume…well, I sent the mail at 9am this morning and it still hadn’t made it to Yahoo by the time I left work this evening.

From what I understand, it seems that part of the deliverability issue concerns how Yahoo mail handles messages sent from a particular mail server. From the mail admin’s side, the outgoing messages are held back in queue for hours at a time and are only accepted intermittently by Yahoo.

For background, read yesterday’s post.

    It seems that the problem has been corrected. Even the size of attachments has been changed to some number over thee old 10 MB.

    Yahoo rules.
