      I sent a message a couple of days ago to abuse@... (something I regularly do) and received a message with the following subject line:

      But, today I received the following mailer-daemon message:

      My guess is that yahoo tried to forward my abuse request to messenger-abuse@..., which apparently doesn't exist. I don't know how pager-abuse@... fits into the equation.

      Has anyone else seen this?

      How can we report abuse if it's gonna be bounced?

      Yahoo is really slipping into substandard.
