Yeah, tried that too. Get back a message saying that they are not yahoo servers. 

For example, just yesterday had a couple of phish quarantined by ClamAV that were using{whatever} as the URL. (It may have been a redirect, but there was no other URL embedded into the message -- nor was there unicode or anything similar.) The hostname is an alias for, and that appears to be why yahoo's automated response disclaims it. 

If you try to send to anything at, their mail server rejects it saying that the mail is an illegal relay attempt.
