Thanks for the link.

Ok, now I am starting to see 45x "grey listings", here is snap shot of a mail

"Yahoo is not keeping track of the mail it rejects and is not reliably allowing
email through on the second attempt. There are a couple reasons why Yahoo is
• Shedding load in a generic and non-specific way.
• Shedding load by temporarily refusing mail from specific IPs.
In the first case, the shedding of load means nothing more than Yahoo is shedding

there any thing the sender is doing (except possibly send mail to Yahoo at the same
time as the rest of the world) to precipitate the blocking."
