Is the problem just Yahoo Groups, or Yahoo
email system in general?
Have you tried including your own email address
when you email out to Yahoo groups, to compare how
long a direct email comes right back, versus popping
up in the Group’s new email arrival box? If there is a
dual problem with posting to Yahoo Groups, and another
forum based at RIT University, then it may not be the
fault of either destination server, but your ISP
server between them and your PC.
I wonder if there is some over active spam
checker in play at your ISP. They can trigger on the
most “innocuous” words. Perhaps the ISP webmaster has
tweaked its SPAM-checking criteria tighter, recently.
Except for that recent 2-day Yahoo hiatus
period, my emails to Yahoo groups have, as usual,
arrived back to my own INBOX, from any of my groups,
in a matter of minutes, if not seconds – and this is
all the way from Canada.
However, I would have appreciated an
explanation, if not an apology from Yahoo, for the
recent service down time.
I can say that generally, Yahoo Group emails have
had excellent turn around times for my posts. I use
the email delivery system for message posts, rather
than using a browser and group login. Perhaps THAT
method makes a difference.
Since I have been getting several repeats of
Rolando’s recent post from last weekend - about
(Fwd: AP Mount Encoder Tests - what do AP encoders
really do?) ... I assume the current Yahoo Groups
service crisis is over, and we can resume normal
Anyway, I’m glad to see that Yahoo is now back
to business as usual ... although ... I have been
expecting Google to buy them out for some time now.
