Space Studies Listserv Issue with Yahoo Accounts
Space Studies received the following announcement concerning our email listservs for students and alumni. If you are using a Yahoo email account, please provide Bev Fetter with a replacement email address if you wish to remain on the department email lists for important announcements. Because of Yahoo's policies, it is understood that you will no longer be able to receive email via these lists, effective immediately.
Last week, Yahoo significantly tightened up its SPAM filtering. As a result, if someone with an @yahoo.com account is a subscriber on an email distribution system like Listserv, messages sent via the distribution system will be rejected by Yahoo.com.
In addition, if someone with an @yahoo.com account sends a message to a distribution system like Listserv, it will cause bounces and auto-deletions of subscribers using other popular email services, such as hotmail.com, outlook.com, comcast.net and gmail.com. Yahoo.com subscribers can still receive messages from the mailing lists but cannot actively participate in an email list discussion.
This is a Yahoo issue and is outside of our control. However, we wanted to make sure you were aware of it.
If you have any other questions, or concerns about the NDUS Listserv email distribution service, please send an e-mail message to email@example.com.
