Yahoo is blocking mail from wikimedia

Description

It seems yahoo is blocking mail from wikimedia.

I asked here https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Sending-and-receiving/Receiving-emails-from-some-of-wikipedia-s-domains-is-taking/m-p/207089/highlight/false#M32702 if they were throttling it but they said no and gave this reply

"Yahoo doesn't throttle emails but we do have internal filters in place for security purposes. It does sound like our internal filters may be blocking specific domains. To have this investigated you would need to contact our postmaster team here."

They say to fill out https://io.help.yahoo.com/contact/index?y=PROD_POST&token=w5FCchB1dWHZDkMtMbkiWS/olUOf8at02BNo0Vv4K5ZVXo60zVrIKWKK47bbe4sOwkpvLfgNeQP/C+5zFtbBR09YD0536rfHLp+Bjf+GQIJpuCbt+vRoU8qX8EKygEWITTl2J2TV04sXtxFpC7fMMwrpuNoxvWgo2EYloKkaFtqTLwKOUmR7kg==&locale=en_US&page=contactform&selectedChannel=email-icon&isVip=false which wikimedia will have to do so yahoo can investigate.

If yahoo is blocking emails then I'm setting high priority.

The task summary says "Yahoo is blocking mail from wikimedia".
The task description says "It seems yahoo is blocking mail from wikimedia."
That's a contradiction - either you know for sure (summary) or you only assume (description). :)

wikimedia will have to do so yahoo can investigate.

Where did somebody from Yahoo say that "Wikimedia" has to do, instead of someone who is affected by the problem?

If yahoo is blocking emails then I'm setting high priority.

But we don't know if, if I get your statements correctly?

@Bawolff told me to let wikimedia fill out the form do to it asking company related questions like address and phone number.

Also I'm only going on by what yahoo told me on https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Sending-and-receiving/Receiving-emails-from-some-of-wikipedia-s-domains-is-taking/m-p/207089/highlight/false#M32702 so I am unsure. But if yahoo is not throttling then its blocking.

To clarify, paladox was asking for the full address of Wikimedia Foundation on irc, which made it sound like he was filling out some sort of form that is expected to be filled out by an official representantive of the foundation. I don't know if that's actually the case, or what this is really about at all.

We can't control the issue which this task claims is ongoing ("Yahoo does X"). We can only make sure we do our best to make our messages deliverable, as asked in T58414. You can continue commenting on this task with generic updates on delivery issues towards Yahoo (personally I'm quite interested), but as an ops task this is not actionable.

Actually you can ask yahoo to stop it. I wiould like someone to fill the form out so yahoo can investigate. I carnt do it as it asks for the company's address.

Yahoo has now unblocked wikimedia as I'm receiving mail on time now :)
