It was for focusing purposes only, in the message only.

The 'yahoo_destination_recipient_limit = 5'  is the one that matches 
Yahoo's rules, not the block of two:
yahoo_destination_recipient_limit = 5
yahoo_destination_concurrency_limit = 2

Then why did I bother to show both?
In case someone wanted to mess with the numbers on their system... it 
was a quick-and-dirty-cut-and-paste...

Yahoo doesn't supply a concurrency limit number, but states that you 
should keep it low to be nice to
their resources.

The values don't matter anyway. It sounds like the Mailman admins who 
have written, have tried everything
and it hasn't made a difference.
