Well.. do be aware that as of mid-last week, any messages sent from

See "Yahoo breaks every mailing list in the world including the
IETF's" http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/ietf/current/msg87153.html
That could be impacting some folks on this list.

Thank you Miles,


I read the archive, so I saw your mail, however, my rocketmail (yahoo)
mail did came through the lists, my original mail address, (I was
subscribed to Debian user and Debian BSD and I'm still subscribed to
Debian OT) is an alice-dsl.net address.

I didn't check http://www.bsi.bund.de/DE/Home/home_node.html, but AFAIK
rocketmail and alice passwords were not hacked, while most others, such
as gmail were hacked.

What email account should we use :D?!

Good friggin question. As far as I can tell, from the bounce logs of some servers that I run, as long as you're sending from something other than Yahoo, you're ok. On the receiving end - yahoo, hotmail, aol, comcast, at least, will drop incoming mail form yahoo; so far gmail does not (though they claim to implement DMARC).


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
