Just to clarify, the problem we are encountering is that emails sent 
from yahoo does not seem to reach our mail server (even any of our MX 
records / anti-spam servers).

We have neither implemented any of the items you have said (still in the 
process of doing so).  I tried to interview our email users regarding 
this issue.  They said that it was working perfectly before March.  Then 
we started to have this isolated problem since then.
