For anyone else that is experiencing delays when sending email to Yahoo addresses, our email admins are aware and working on this issue. It appears that Yahoo may blocking first attempts which is why some of you are getting bounce-back messages. It is possible that they are doing this as a way to mitigate the amount of spam that they are receiving as most spammers will send out a single blast and not try again. Fortunately our servers will keep trying to deliver the email, so in most cases the emails are going through, but with a significant delay.
