Blocked SBC Global email

Blocked SBC Global email

Friends with SBC Global Email (Yahoo related) cannot send me email.

The email bounces back to them as undeliverable.  This seems to have started in the last week or so.

Using an iMac and recently upgraded the OS.

Want to get email from friends!  Wouldn't know except they've complained to me!!

Is Comcast blocking or are there specific connectivity issues between SBC Global and Comcast?

Re: Blocked SBC Global email

If senders sometimes get a "server unreachable for too long" bounce message about 24 hours after sending, there isn't much that can be done. See the reply to http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Email-Web-Browsing/Returned-email/m-p/2797184#M167766 for more information.


If the bounce message is different, what is it?
