Microsoft is wanting to take over Yahoo. To avoid this, Yahoo is considering partnering with News Corp. News Corp. owns MySpace. And now I can’t email from my Gmail account the word MySpace to a Yahoo email account. WHAT???????
In my signature is my MySpace profile address. This afternoon I went to send an email to a Yahoo user. Out of the blue, the email came back to me with this error message.
“Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 16): 554 Message not allowed – UP Email not accepted for policy reasons. Please visit http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/defer/defer-04.html”
So, I tried again. And again. Then I tried other Yahoo email addresses. Those bounced back as well. Then I took out the MySpace part of my signature and the emails went through. Please, someone explain to me what is going on and how any of this makes sense. Kthnxbai!
