    Yahoo! Mailservers Blocklisted

    Well, Wazoo, I DID read the previous posts, and I DO want to know what's going on. What I gathered from the postings is that the SpamCop service cannot differentiate between a legitimate e-mail sender and a spammer because it relies on the IP address of a mail server to determine "spaminess" (a word I just made up-I think) rather than the IP of the sender's machine, or the history of a particular addy. So be it. I had no idea that Yahoo! servers were so badly compromised. Someone alert the press If I did I would never opened an e-mail account with them. And, I had no idea SpamCop even existed until I started sending e-mail through Yahoo! 3 days ago. I guess I was caught off-guard as my msn and hotmail accounts have NEVER triggered a black listing in years and years of use. I apologize if I inadvertently offended any of you marvelous geeks/nerds who live, eat and breathe this stuff. The rest of us newbies, casual users and people who just want to send out a freakin' e-mail are in your debt for your diligence. I am now going to cancel my Yahoo! account and tell them it is because they cannot control spamming through their servers and that is adversely affecting how I do business. I appreciate all the insight your group has given me on this issue.

    Yahoo! Mailservers Blocklisted

    <snip> But my expectation is that you will find yourself suffering again since this is a shared SMTP mail server. You may want to make alternative arrangements for outgoing Email. Andrew Well, that kind of sucks. Can I expect the same kind of SpamCop BL from a new msn or gmail account?? I appreciate any cyber industry that attempts to reduce spam, but isn't there any refinement youse guys can make that keeps me from getting tarred with the same brush as the spammers using yahoo servers? My new yahoo addy is clean as a whistle, I am a responsible netizen, and my mother-in-law thinks I'm a nice young man. I am going to look like a real jerk if I have to re-email everybody that my organization has ANOTHER new addy because Yahoo servers are corrupted with spammers. Sorry for whining, but, dagnabit, my 21st Century expectations are not being met. Respectfully,

    Yahoo! Mailservers Blocklisted

    Have been reading the pinned notices and a couple of posts. My question/confusion is on how SpamCop became a part of my life 3 days ago, when I have been using e-mail unmolested for a number of years. I have a couple of personal .msn addys, and just created one on yahoo for my organization. Things went swell for a couple of days when replies and new messages on the yahoo started getting blocked. Here are the particulars: first for a reply, second for a new message, and third, copy of what my IT guy at work says is going on. 1) Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com. I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out. : 216.9.150.33 does not like recipient. Remote host said: 550 mail from 66.196.100.253 refused by SpamCop, see http://www.spamcop.net Giving up on 216.9.150.33. 2) Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com. I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out. : Connected to 207.115.36.22 but sender was rejected. Remote host said: 550 5.0.0 nlpi044.sbcis.sbc.com Access Denied. To request removal, send the complete error message, including your ip addresses, in an E-mail to removeme[at]sbc.sbcglobal.net : Connected to 207.115.20.21 but sender was rejected. Remote host said: 550 5.0.0 flpvm06.prodigy.net Access Denied. To request removal, send the complete error message, including your ip addresses, in an E-mail to removeme[at]sbc.sbcglobal.net 3) This is what I have on those IP addresses. It appears time-warner.net and driftwood.net aren’t playing nice with each other. Those things happen from time to time. Not much I can do, except explain what is going on, because I don’t know why.

I have logged a support request at yahoo, and they say they will get back to me. OH, and none of the IPs listed are the IP of my desktop, laptop nor work's server. Thanks for any insight!
