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."
