This issue is for any Yahoo supported email service. This includes, but is not limited to, Yahoo, AOL, Frontier, and ATT.
Yahoo has flagged our mail servers from delivering mail to Yahoo email accounts due to what they claim are "reports of abuse" by their users. All email that is sent to Yahoo email addresses by our mail servers is, by definition, transactional email. That is, it is email communication relating to business transactions between buyers and sellers.
While we've always been able to eventually have Yahoo support remove such flags, Yahoo support is not only slow to respond, but they are not able to provide us with any assurances that mail will be delivered in the future. Dealing with Yahoo support is time consuming and a frustrating experience, and detracts from our ability to provide best-in-class support to our users.
We take email deliverability very seriously, and need to ensure that we're doing everything we can to provide seamless communication between buyers and sellers.
While we will continue to support Yahoo email addresses, it is with the unfortunate disclaimer that in the event Yahoo blacklists our mail server you will not be able to receive email in a timely manner, if at all. Yahoo may impose significant delivery delays or the refusal for delivery, and there's really nothing we can do to resolve this matter in a timely fashion. We will do our best to communicate this to you when / if it happens, but the fact that communication is delayed makes the exercise problematic. We will, however, publish all such announcements here in our Support Center.
We strongly encourage you to consider utilizing another email address for your VCG services. Ideally it will be a professional business domain email address that represents your company. Alternatively, you may consider creating a Gmail address. We cannot recommend Yahoo as it shares the same parent company as Yahoo/AOL.
If you have any questions regarding issues relating to email delivery to your Yahoo email address please contact Yahoo, as there's nothing we can do to help in that regard.
