More Spam Filter Horror Stories

March 5, 2008

Back in December, I wrote about how spam filters are often worse than spam. The failure of spam filters has struck again today and I can only apologize to those of you who rely on Yahoo for your mail.

Every message we have tried to send to users of Yahoo mail has failed today. Yahoo can’t give us a reason. So if you are trying to download ROMCat, we have tried to send you the information. If you wanted to try out Unleashed FX, we have tried to send you the information you need. If you have purchased something and haven’t heard from us, we’ve tried.

The only thing I can suggest is that you should not rely on Yahoo mail. You can try whitelisting e-mail addresses, though I’m not sure even that will work in this instance. We hope that Yahoo will realize the err of their ways soon, but until then all I can do is suggest not to use Yahoo for your e-mail.
