Description Todd From Packetstorm 2007-03-07 09:49:29 UTC
All -

Yahoo sends out emails from their corporate domain when setting up interviews
with people.  Their corporate domain is yahoo-inc.com (as yahoo.com is for
public use).  Due to a rule in spamassassin, emails going out to candidates is
being blocked.  Can someone look into this and fix it (maybe just add
yahoo-inc.com to the whitelist for this rule)?
