[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Houskeeping: All Yahoo subscribers

It appears that at least one IP address owned by Yahoo ( has 
been banned by SORBS, an anti-spam software system.  What this means is 
that, at some point, that address was used to distribute spam and it is now 
being blocked by some servers.

When you post a message from a Yahoo account, it can be sent out by any one 
of its many servers, each with a different IP address.  If you are posting 
a message to our mail list, and it happens to go out on the IP address 
shown above, it will not get through to us.  Messages emanating from a 
different address will get through.

What this means is that you can expect to have sporadic problems in posting 
messages to us.  If you notice that a message did not come through, you can:

a)  Post it again.  Presumably it will route through a different address 
and will get through.

b)  Relay the problem to Yahoo and let them take it up with SORBS.

Unfortunately this problem must be dealt with at the servers level and 
there is nothing we at SGGEE can do about it.

Thank you.
