You're welcome to like the attitude, but it's really just the flip
side of Yahoo's. The problem is spam, not Yahoo, and Yahoo serves a
clientele that in general cares more about spam getting through when
they don't want it than ham not getting through when they do want it.
If you really want to stick it to Yahoo, they claim that they respect
authenticated mail. PGP sign everything that goes through your
server. If they're serious about delivering mail that their users
want, that had better be good enough.
