Due to several compromised accounts sending SPAM and phishing emails targeting unknown users at AOL and Yahoo, Marshall.edu has earned a bad sender reputation with Yahoo’s sender reputation service. This service forces all emails coming from marshall.edu to be deferred when sending emails to AOL.com and Yahoo.com. There is no way to request a delisting but Yahoo claims that “typically” the listing should only last for 4 hours unless there are continued reports. The Systems team will be closely monitoring our Exchange queues and will update the ITServiceStatus web site once the ban has lifted.
In an effort to improve recipient verification on mass mailings coming in to the University email systems, the ITI Systems team has made modifications to our Barracuda_Recipient_Verification and Barracuda receive connectors in Exchange. These changes have eliminated the restrictions on the number of concurrent recipient verification requests. Please contact the service desk and report any undesired issues with email due to this change.
