Blockade Runner Outlook

Getting back to Aberdeen, I find that Yahoo’s blockade of my email address only applies to emails sent from Pipex’s online “Netmail” service. Emails sent from my desktop to Yahoo addresses are fine. Huzzah for the ineptitude of Yahoo. As I rarely use Pipex’s “Netmail” service, I am now not sure how long yahoo have had their blockade active, since they have never told me about it, and – when they did bother to reply to my enquiries – said that it was nothing to do with them. In other words, Yahoo lied. They are not lying now, as they did not reply to my last email. Maybe that’s where the name comes from? Stick a finger in each ear and make the noise “Yahoo” continually until the complaints go away.

Life’s too short to bother with these bozos. Transmission ends.

And the moral of the story is....

There's only one webmail service that can be trusted to work, and its called gmail.

Sadly I read online that people had had problems with YahooGroups blocking some Googlemail. So even that's not above Yahoo's tactical blockade.

We're even finding some chaps with Yahoo email have problems with our YahooGroup.
