I'm getting 4XX frequently, and occasionally:

                                         foo at yahoo.com

What I think this means is that they're noticing that I originate too
much email to Yahoo users that don't exist. It comes and goes, which is
what you would expect for a real-time check.

(FYI, I'm not an open relay, and I'm not in the RBL's you suggested I
check.)
