Yahoo Problems, Part 2

We’re still unable to send any email successfully to Yahoo addresses. After experimenting, it seems that all messages to any Yahoo addresses are being returned with “message not allowed”.

I talked to our ISP about the problem, and they say that this is happening only to us; i.e. it is specific to our email account. This may mean that we have been maliciously reported to Yahoo as spammers.

As a result, we can’t reply to any messages that come to us from Yahoo. At this point there doesn’t seem to be anything we can do about it.

If you have a Yahoo account and are waiting for a reply from us, I apologize. You may want to complain to Yahoo and ask them to unblock unspiek(at) and dymphna(at)

  1. Baron, do learn from your big opponent: If the mountain won’t come to you, you must go to the mountain!
    If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. can be of great help to you moving dispatches from under The Blue Ridge Mountains to Yahoo.

    How I wish everyone would ditch Yahoo! But, unfortunately, some people still use it.

    Yes, I could change our email address, and use another account. And then change all the references to it everywhere on web pages, and then somehow remember to notify all the people who need to know about the change.

    But then the person who has maliciously flagged our address as a spammer with Yahoo could do exactly the same thing with our new account, and we would be right back where we started.

    The problem isn’t which email account we use. The problem is that Yahoo is evidently incompetent or indifferent or willing to take the word of a malicious prankster when blocking emails from a specific address.

  3. Gmail is not a good idea for people using Blogger for their blog. If your blog is blocked so is your gmail account (which is worse actually). Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Especially not if the basket is called Google.

  4. Please indicate a Yahoo email so that all of us may contact directly the Yahoo staff to correct this problem.

    Thank you!


  5. What about this?:

    Yahoo! Customer Service

    Unfortunately, I cannot call from Mexico. International phone calls are too expensive and my (Hispanic) accent, awful.

    P.S. The E-Mail address for Yahoo! customer care is

    For the USA
