Mailing list issues
The mailing list is having significant issues, due to
change made by Yahoo on April 8, 2013:
If you are an ALPCA member subscribed with a @yahoo.com,
@yahoo.com.au, or @yahoo.ca email address to the ALPCA-discuss or
ALPCA-announce mailing lists, there is a significant thing happening in
Internet land right now that you need to be aware of.
Due to something that Yahoo has enabled that is intended to fight spam, many
traditional (non-Web) mailing lists will be automatically rejected by
AT&T, Comcast, Hotmail, MSN, Outlook, SBC Global, Shaw Cable, and others.
Unfortunately (and this is terrible, but I have no other choice), the only fix
for this right now is to temporarily suspend all folks using Yahoo mail for
ALPCA lists. This is breaking mailing lists all over the place and is not
just an ALPCA issue.
As a workaround, affected members can subscribe to the list using a non-Yahoo
email address, using these
Please include your ALPCA member number so that we can map your address.
Members in other domains using the feature that Yahoo enabled
(@att.net, @comcast.net, @hotmail.com, @live.com, @msn.com, @outlook.com,
may see messages indicating that they have been automatically unsubscribed,
and including a password.
(This password is not the same password used for ALPCA
members-only site access.)
