ISP? What ISP? I manage only the mail server of an OSS project,
nothing fancy (although we produce as many mails as a small ISP).
And all that in my free time too. Yahoo is definitly not worth
the time i invested sofar to resolve this issue.

And yes, no other free mailer made that much trouble. Even GMX which
is known to be a pain is quite responsive if they see it comes from a
fellow admin.

Well, we'll see what happens. I'm quite sure you'll hear about
it if i "ban" yahoo.
