Only Roadrunner eamils are returned to me - yahoo blocked?


New Email
All of a sudden when ever I send an email to someone with a Roadrunner address it is returned to me! Roadrunner is my server. I use a Yahoo email address.
here is a copy of the message I get:

Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

Mail server for "" unreachable for too long

--- Below this line is a copy of the message.

Hi Chris,

It might be a problem between Time Warner and Yahoo, it might be a problem with the individual account(s). How many different accounts can you not send an email to? Are they all bouncing with the same error message? I could not send a test email to a known good address either. I contacted Road Runner support and the phone tech could not send themselves a message from Yahoo to Road Runner either. It may take a little time for the test messages to bounce back to us. It's on Time Warner's radar now, so if this is the start o a problem they're aware of it and will correct it ASAP. Hope that helps!

Better late than never. For the technically curious this was a problem where the Time Warner / Road Runner mail servers were blocking at least some email from Yahoo. Time Warner needed to get their list of IP addresses that belong to Yahoo mail servers updated. It was corrected within a few days of the problem starting.
