  1. When trying to register the mailhosts for my BT Internet email address I get these errors:

    Connecting to mx1.bt.mail.yahoo.com.:

    smtpSend:smtpEnd: message transmission failed: 421 Message temporarily deferred - 4.16.51. Please refer to http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/defer/defer-06.html

    Connecting to mx2.bt.mail.yahoo.com.:

    smtpSend:smtpEnd: message transmission failed: 421 Message temporarily deferred - 4.16.51. Please refer to http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/defer/defer-06.html

    I never get the probes. I've waited about 48 hours since the first time this happened. Back then, I only got the deferred message for one of the two servers. Now I get it for both.

    I have searched the forums and can find plenty of mentions of Yahoo but with other problems which suggest that other people haven't encountered this difficulty.

    Yes, I have referred to the URL suggested above, but there's nothing I as a user can do with the information provided. I can't reconfigure either SpamCop's or Yahoo's mail servers!


  2. OK, so I get the message:

    Forgery detected, or mailhost configuration incomplete. Please verify source IP identified.

    What do I do next? I mean, I've verified the source IP (which is to say, I've checked that my mailhost configuration is complete, and that the IP address does not belong to one of my mailservers - in fact, it's an ADSL port that's on one of the blackhole lists), so what do I do now?
