Does Yahoo! use "greylisting" to reject messages?


The most commonly understood form of "greylisting" is where an SMTP server will reject every message the first time it is attempted, and then accept it if the sending server retries later. The theory is that spammers won't retry messages, while legitimate senders will.

Yahoo! does not utilize this method.
