[CQ-Contest] 3830 & Yahoo Mail.

I would think that all Yahoo needs to do is to whitelist all traffic from 
cq-contest at contesting.com . This should be rather simple on their end. There 
should be a config file on their firewall and/or spam software for this.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] 3830 & Yahoo Mail.

After CW CQWW contest I had to go away for a few days. On my return the were 
some 1300 mails in my Yahoo mailbox and a few in my Spam box. I should have 
I deleted the majority and a day later I had mail from Dave Pascoe, KM3T who 
is one of the Admin staff for Contesting.com, enquiring why I had been 
marking the 3830 post as as 'Spam' On enquiry it seemed that there was about 
a dozen involved.

Over the years Yahoo have been diverting the odd 3830 post into the Spam 
box, I read and delete them thinking nothing of it. Obviously the ones Dave 
referred to had been in the spam box. Since Dave's mail the 3830 posts in my 
Spam box has rocketed to 60/70 each day and this morning after the busy 
contest weekend I have more than 450 in there which is ridiculous.

I know nothing about how Yahoo works with regard to Spam. I am pretty sure 
that I did not mark any of my Inbox mail as Spam although cannot rule it 
out. I may have done for one page. Dave tells me they are having great 
problems with Yahoo due to this issue because of the vast number of 
subscribers to the Contesting.com.

The only solution, if it is a solution, I can think of is to mark all mail 
from lists we subscribe to, whether or not we intend to read them, is to 
mark and move them into the Inbox before doing any deletions, do NOT delete 
them in the Spam box! I am doing that now even though it seems it is too 
late for me.

Is there anything I can do by contact with Yahoo to rectify this issue? The 
Admin guys at the List have more than enough to handle without all the 
aggravation they are getting from Yahoo and also AOL I understand. All 
suggestions welcomed.
