Both yahoo.co.uk and btinternet.com mail runs through much of the same
mail infrastructure.

There are issues relating to this, that have caused the various "us"es
that I do stuff for, immense problems.

(to the extent we went on the name-and-shame approach on Twitter, in one

yahoo/btinternet/btopenworld &c, perhaps. If you don't know how to do
that, RTFM/(Search, and then, if necessary, ask the appropriate lists.
