Re: Yahoo! Mail Issue

Just to clarify, the problem we are encountering is that emails sent from yahoo does not seem to reach our mail server (even any of our MX records / anti-spam servers).

We have neither implemented any of the items you have said (still in the process of doing so). I tried to interview our email users regarding this issue. They said that it was working perfectly before March. Then we started to have this isolated problem since then.

emails to yahoo until i implemented dkim, domainkeys and spf then all my
yahoo problems disappeared ,

I just want to know if you have implemented any of
these technologies dkim,domainkeys and spf, other wise you would have
all those problems

    Um...it might be easier to get mail, if your host didn't close
    the connection with a 5xx error.  :/

    mpetach () hinotori:~> host -t mx stluke.com.ph <http://stluke.com.ph>
    stluke.com.ph <http://stluke.com.ph> mail is handled by 20
    qc.stluke.com.ph <http://qc.stluke.com.ph>.
    stluke.com.ph <http://stluke.com.ph> mail is handled by 20
    mx1.stluke.com.ph <http://mx1.stluke.com.ph>.
    stluke.com.ph <http://stluke.com.ph> mail is handled by 40
    gc.stluke.com.ph <http://gc.stluke.com.ph>.
    mpetach () hinotori:~> nslookup qc.stluke.com.ph <http://qc.stluke.com.ph>.

    I imagine when port 25 stops giving 5xx
    failure message back, mail reception
    might improve.   ^_^;
