  Mailing list issues

The mailing list is having significant issues, due to a change made by Yahoo on April 8, 2013:

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2141120/yahoo-email-antispoofing-policy-breaks-mailing-lists.html

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 alpca-discuss and alpca-announce links. 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, @sbcglobal.net, @shaw.ca) 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.) We think that the initial storm is over, but there may be stragglers. If you get such a message, please forward it to webmaster@alpca.org and we will diagnose the issue.

We apologize for the trouble. You may want to consider bringing this to Yahoo's attention.
