I think it took a few weeks for me to get a reply through that system...I believe their 'Bulk Mail Advocacy' said they are typically 72hours. Try increasing your retries to extend beyond that.

I got the following auto-response to filling out the form:
"This is an automated message regarding your recent request for Yahoo!
Postmaster Customer Care Support. We have received your message but due
to a temporary problem we wanted to let you know it could take up to a
week until you receive a response. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Thank you for reaching out to us. We look forward to helping you!"
Makes me wonder exactly what their "temporary" problem is... a week of
deferred mail could really stack up.
