One more time....

Yahoo is part of a consortium that is trying to adopt a new
email security procedure.  Some other companies are too.
That new security procedure rejects mail from most mailing
lists, treating it as a forgery/spam. (Wanna know why? Look
up DMARC and Yahoo.)

Yahoo turned on that feature last week: many web sites are
now treating emails from those mailing lists as SPAM,
marking the mailing list as SPAM.  This happens whenever
a person with a Yahoo mailing address posts to that list.

Yahoo thinks it can drag the Internet into their new
security procedure.  I suggest that people now pretty
much HAVE to dump Yahoo email addresses instead. Because
most mailing lists are turning Yahoo addresses into "readers

I think Yahoo gambled and messed up.
