      We don't treat Yahoo! any differently here, so essentially we delivered using
      Postfix defaults.

      We have a "fragile" queue for difficult providers but only Microsoft domains
      are listed.

      Whilst I've seen comment that Yahoo! throttle, I had some logs that suggest
      Yahoo! also can be overloaded at times (hardly surprising given some of the
      botnets out there).

      As such afraid I tend to the view that if Yahoo! email is delayed it is
      largely a Yahoo! problem. Although we've not had any complaints of such in
      recent months (years?), and BT Internet use Yahoo so we ship them quite a
      significant proportion of our outbound email. Most of the feedback we got was
      when BT switched to using Yahoo, so I assume teething problems.
