Sounds like the obvious thing to tell customers complaining about their
e-mail not getting to Yahoo! is to tell them that Yahoo! doesn't want it.

Except for queue management.  I just got off the phone with one client
who requested precisely: "Can you just have [the servers] refuse to
send mail to Yahoo?"

DO NOT send mail to the following addresses:
davidc at -*- jfconmaapaq at -*- sam at
Sending mail to spambait addresses is a great way to get blocked.
Ditto for broken OOO autoresponders and foolish AV software backscatter.
