    anyone else noticed that yahoos' mail servers are not putting out as
    much spam as usual. I used to get about 30 per day, now none.

    There has been a reduction for me of about 50%. I think this is due to the rolling up of 'bot networks by Microsoft and others, NOT Yahoo!.

    More seriously Yahoo! have been letting through about 5% of serious Spam, which is spoofed as coming from genuine large organisation email addresses, but contains semi genuine (and unconnected) PPI and windows scrappage pitches etc., often seemingly on behalf of genuine companies (e.g. Anglian)

    I've noticed that my sky email, which is run by Yahoo is now sending me
    spam which used to be from Yahoo, but not as much as Yahoo did.
