- For information
As some of you on this (and other) Yahoogroups lists will have noticed
they have been sending multiple messages from some of their servers
over the past 24 hours or so.
Below is their latest spiel about this problem,
Duplicate Messages and Email Delivery
We're aware of the duplicate message bug that has been affecting
groups today and are working to resolve the issue (a side effect of
this bug is that some messages are also being delayed). We have
actually pushed two fixes already, but we are aware that some groups
are still experiencing the problem and that more needs to be done to
fully resolve the issue.
There is, however, one silver lining to this bug. It was the
result of our latest system updates intended to improve email
delivery speeds. So once the bugs are resolved, we should see a
significant reduction in the time it takes to deliver messages to
Yahoo! Groups members.
We will update this blog entry as soon as we have more
definitive information on the status of this issue.
Thank you and our apologies for any inconvenience caused by the
The Yahoo! Groups Team
P.S. It would be helpful to get reports of duplicate issues if
your groups are still experiencing the problem with messages posted
(not received) after 8:00 pm PST. If so, please add a comment to the
bug letting us know the name of your group and the message numbers of
the duplicate messages. Thanks!
