Whoa, after one single bounce Yahoo Groups turns OFF accounts. My email service was down for a short time on Sunday night, a single
Yahoo Groups list I was on sent something during that time. Today I got a message reading
"Please reactivate your Yahoo! Groups account:
Recently, messages sent to you from Yahoo! Groups have been returned to us as undeliverable. To prevent any problems with
your email service, we have temporarily turned your Yahoo! Groups account OFF.
If you are reading this message now, the delivery problem appears to be fixed. However, we won't know that the problem is fixed until you tell us." (Huh?)
Most list owners cut off opt-ins after seven or 10 bounced messages in a row. I've never heard of anyone who cut off after one. I guess Yahoo is trying to cut back on server space and any excuse is a good excuse to cancel a free account. Independent groups and publishers who operate out of Yahoo groups should be aware of this: Your lists will start dwindling fast with this policy in place.
