Failed to configure your mailhosts

Recommended Posts

I had (thought?) my mailhosts were configured corrrectly. Out of the blue, some of the messages are telling me. "You have failed to configure your own mail host, from which you pop mail"

I configured that host, months and months ago....

It is a Yahoo server.....

I looked at the configuration, and it has greatly changed since when I first setup, so evidently the system dynamically adjusts.....

Any idea, how I correct I problem represented below? I know I could drop/add the account in mailhost, but I feel I would be back to 'square one'

Here are the reporting messages...

pop1-f.sbc.mail.vip.mud.yahoo.com ( 68.142.198.12 ) was in fact not configured as a Mailhost when I first read your message, and yet that is where mailgate's fetchmail is fetching from. I have notified the Deputies of this problem because I, too, am a Yahoo! customer.

How long should it take them to correct?

Or did Prodigy/Yahoo make more changes?
