It's interesting that when I changed my church email to a gmail.com address and then set my gmail account to forward to my verizon.net email account, those messages from the LCR system aren't being forwarded. and get the error below:
Your message to firstname.lastname@example.org
has been blocked. See technical details below for more information.
The response from the remote server was:
554 5.7.9 Message not accepted for policy reasons. See https://postmaster.yahooinc.com/error-codes
Here's what the yahoo postmaster link says about 554 SMTP error codes:
- A 553 or 554 SMTP error indicates an email could not be delivered due to a permanent problem. Message delivery can be permanently deferred because:
- You're trying to send a message to an invalid email address.
- Your message failed authentication checks against your sending domain's DMARC or DKIM policy.
- The message contains characteristics that Yahoo won't accept for policy reasons.
- Other suspicious behavior which leads Yahoo to issue a permanent rejection for your SMTP connection.
- Your IP is listed by Spamhaus. Please check with https://www.spamhaus.org
- If you consistently receive 5xx errors when sending to Yahoo, we encourage you to review our Sender Best Practices, since 5xx errors can be a symptom of a more widespread, general problem.
- You should not retry sending an email that comes back with with a 5xx error. List managers should have a policy for removing email addresses that generate 5xx errors/bounces.
It seems yahoo thinks the church emails are spam and not authenticated. This has been going on almost a year. Why isn't anyone working to get this resolved?
