Yahoo! Group's bouncing policy sucks

Filed in: Internet.

It seems to be that on occasion Yahoo! Groups tries to send a mailing list message to me and it bounces (probably because the mailing server is temporarily down). Any sane person would just wait a bit and try again, but from what I can tell, Y!G simply suspends all mailing list emails to that address, waits four or five days, then sends a "reactivate your subscriptions" email. Which is fine, except that way you unnecessarily miss a whole pile of emails.

Come on, Yahoo! Try again! It's not like bouncing emails are cosing you money.

I suppose I should have noticed I wasn't getting any emails from Yahoo! Groups.
