Yes, it might overcome this problem, but you'll get another,
even worse one: maintenance problems. Every setting you have
in your MTA needs to be checked over updates and might cause
undesired effects in case something, somewhere (even a remote host)
changes. Thus i will not add any special setting for yahoo or
any other freemailer/ISP/whatever

If yahoo wants to receive mails from my server (and i'm sure
they want because their users subscribed to my lists), then
they have to play nice like everyone else too.
