      Hi everone,




      Yahoo sent out a message to moderators that it has made some changes to try to eliminate many of the spam messages that get through from non-members. However, some member posts which are not spam may accidentally be rejected.

      The message is below. It sounds like the message rejection will go directly to the person and there will be a note that it is rejected for "policy" reasons.

      I don't know how to remedy this, but hopefully they will let us know.

      Thanks,
      Carol



      ============POST TO MODERATORS RE: REJECTION FOR POLICY REASONS========

      First, we have made some change recently to block the ability of spammers to post to groups by "spoofing" the email addresses of real group members.

      However, a side effect of these changes is that some legitimate messages could be blocked, particularly if a user is posting via an "external email client" that does not have its SMTP configuration set to correctly identify the source of the message.

      You will know if your messages are being affected by this problem if you receive a bounce message letting you know that your email has been rejected for "policy reasons" or "community guidelines violations".
