At least that's what I figured until I started getting bounces like the one below. It seems Microsoft has decided that Security Focus mailing lists are too dangerous. To step up the oddity of this policy, bounces only occur when the originating MTA is with Yahoo. I can receive email directly from securityfocus.com. I can receive email from securityfocus.com when the originating mail server is a one-off IP address from Finland that is part of a DSL netblock. But Yahoo is a bridge too far. Stupid stupid stupid.
