Thanks for your feedback.

So far, the change I implemented seems to be working ... note that your
"From" address has been "munged" such that it no longer claims to be sent
from a Yahoo! server, when it in fact comes from amsat.org - the AMSAT
server checked to see if yahoo.com had a restrictive DMARC policy, saw
that it did, so replaced your address with the list address.   Other mail
servers around the internet don't see a DMARC policy violation, and list
mail is delivered.

Spam folders, on the other hand, are a separate problem.  ISP's have a
different methods of sorting spam from ham.  Yahoo! has some tips for its
users at:


Other ISP's have their own procedures.
