Unfortunately, Yahoo isn't the only culrpit. More and more servers are
honoring DMARC.  I, for example, keep my email on my own server at home,
but because my ISP blocks port 25, I have to hire a third party to
receive and re-send my email for me, both incoming and outgoing.  I'm
(mostly) at their mercy for things like spam filters and DMARC, and
(at least right now) I'm not in a position to find a new company
if I decide I'm not crazy about their policies.

I appreciate your opinion, but remember to look at it from the other
side -- what is the point of a mailing list if you're the only person
left who can access it?
