Undeliverable emails from yahoo POP account


New Email
A few months ago I started having random emails that were sent to various people returned to me. For all of the effected people - I had previously sent them emails with no problems. And, for all these people I still occasionally am able to successfully send them emails. (I send to a large group - I still include these "problem" addresses" and just follow up with an additional email from a throw-away account. Sometimes the messages from my Yahoo account come back to me - other times they are received).

When they do bounce back - it always takes 3 -5 days for it to bounce back.

It has happened when sending to aol.com, comcast.com, kisd.org, and others.

An example of one of the messages I have received is:

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

Mail server for "aol.com" unreachable for too long

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

I have contact Yahoo and they say to contact the receiving locations - that the problem is not fro Yahoo. I just can't believe that it is a coincidence that all of these receivers are having the same problem. Especially after doing some searches on-line and seeing others with Yahoo POP accounts have the same issue. I have found many people talking about it, but can't find anyone posting a resolutions - short of changing emails! I don't want to give up on my email address because I have had it over 10 years!

Yahoo Help can only give me a scripted answer - "Did you type the address correctly? Did you hit "Send"? Contact the receiving location".

Can anyone here help me??

After escalating my problem with Yahoo to their concierge support - I did a carpet bomb to all executives - they admitted it was their problem and there wasn't anything that could be done about it.

I changed email addresses.
